There has also been a 10 per cent increase in the number of Pembroke puppies registered with the Kennel Club in the first three months of 2012, compared with the same time last year. In 2011 a total of 371 Pembrokes were registered.

When fewer than 300 puppies are registered a year the Kennel Club regards the breed as vulnerable. But puppy registrations for Cardigan corgis have increased, with 17 new dogs registered in the first quarter of the year, compared with 10 for the same period in 2011. With a total of 108 puppies registered last year, the breed topped the 100-mark for the first time in a decade.
