Burbank Corgi Club celebrates popular dog breed at local dog park

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Do you love Corgis? Well, did you know that Baton Rouge has a club just for Corgi dogs?

The club meets once a month (weather permitting) at the Burbank Dog Park at BREC's Burbank Sports Complex.

Daniel Garza, who is the manager of the Burbank Corgi Club, says the breed of Pembroke Welsh Corgis are very smart and very energetic dogs. The club consists of like-minded Corgi owners who meet up to enjoy the fresh air with their dogs and share tips about caring for their dogs.

The Corgis get a chance to socialize with other dogs and run off some of that energy! Many owners that we talked to say they love their Corgis even though they can be a handful at times, especially as puppies.

Garza said attendance at the meetings has steadily grown since the club was first created in February 2016. Now there is an average of 20-30 Corgis at each meeting. But he hopes that number will grow. Garza says he reaches out to each of the club's members to ensure the best turnouts and develop a sense of community. His own 2-year-old tricolor Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Celeste, is a regular at the meetings.
