What kind of dog is Cooper?
He is a purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
How old is Cooper?
Cooper was born on October 15, 2014 and will be 5 years old.
Where can I get a Cooper? Or a corgi?
All dogs are different and unique so I don't think you will get a "Cooper." His breeder passed away in 2014 and unfortunately, I cannot give out a referral. Please go here to read about acquiring a puppy (specifically a Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy) if you are hoping to bring home a four-legged best friend.
Does Cooper bark?
Yes, he does. It may not be recorded often but he does bark and it's loud. Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a herding breed and they're generally known to bark a lot.
How did Cooper get his name?
We went through the alphabet and when we landed on C, the name Cooper came up and we found it fitting.
His full name is Cooper Wellington Tran, Wellington like beef wellington.
What does Cooper eat?
Cooper mainly eat Stella and Chewy's freeze dried patties (we rotate the recipes every 2-3 weeks) with raw food (ex. duck foot, chicken heart, trachea) included, as well as adding fresh vegetables such as kale, cucumber, and green beans. I switch up his meal with varying vegetables and raw food on a daily basis, Stella and Chewy's is part of every meal though.
What bag do you use to carry Cooper?
I use a LoveThyBeast bag in size large to carry Cooper through public transit.
Does Cooper like to swim?
Yes! Although he won't jump into the ocean to swim and will stray away from the incoming waves. However, if we are at a lake, pool, or river then Cooper will most likely take a dip.
How do you teach Cooper all those tricks?
I follow YouTube tutorials and my 101 Dog Trick book to figure out what I want to teach Cooper. With any new trick, it takes a lot of time and patience. Corgis are highly intelligent and they are eager to learn with the right motivation. Cooper loves to eat and he loves fetch, I use these two love of his to work on tricks and other obedience training. Teaching a dog new tricks doesn't happen overnight.
Will you be getting a sibling for Cooper?
Yes! I want to bring home a female Cardigan Welsh Corgi one day. This won't happen for another 2-3 years.

No. That'll be irresponsible of me as a pet owner. And Cooper is a neutered boy.
