Immer Essen Farm puppies are usually DM Clear - very occasionally DM Free.
All puppies born at Immer Essen Farm are not genetically at risk for degenerative myelopathy
(since DNA testing for susceptibility to this condition became available in late 2008)
and have good pedigrees and parent health certification backgrounds.
We occasionally have an adult available for adoption,
but you must be close enough to come for 2 visits.
You must have a fenced yard, have previously lived
with a corgi, and have veterinary references.
There are adoption fees.

Please don't expect an answer if you have not bothered to peruse this page and the links to our puppies.
Inquiries that do not include a name, a location, and an introduction will not receive a reply.
Our puppies are able to leave here after their first set of shots at 8 weeks, but new owners must be aware that puppies are not fully protected from diseases such as parvo until after their 16 week shots because of possible interference with the vaccine from maternal antibodies. This is the reason why walking in public areas at a young age is discouraged. Links to sites that may give you a better understanding of how this works:

Pricing for corgi pups with neuter/spay agreement is generally $1500. Puppies with breeding papers are generally $2500 and are sold rarely and only by special agreement. We prefer to sell our puppies to homes where they will be pets. Our puppies are brought up in the home and sleep in the house - we spend a lot of time and lose a lot of sleep on their crate training so they will be good family members, and we will not place a puppy in a home where it will be kept outdoors full-time. Please be aware that if you rent your home, we will require a copy of your lease showing that a dog is permitted.
If you are inquiring about adopting an older corgi, we will only consider adoptions where the adopter has already lived with a corgi in the past, is not in an apartment, and has a fenced yard. Our corgis spend their lives here in a very rural setting and are not exposed to traffic or regular leash walking. Our ideal new family already has one of our corgis in the home!
we do not have a big show name, we do have top show lines
and high health certification standards - Our corgis are all
tested for vWD and have acceptable eye evaluations.
PennHip and/or OFA for hip certifications. Our corgis are all
tested with the new DNA test for degenerative
myelopathy risk factor* and we are producing only puppies that are not
at risk for DM. At present, we have all DM Clear
Pembroke Welsh Corgis. Our Corgis
excellent pedigrees, with many champion forebears. Puppies
are vaccinated at 8 weeks, 12 weeks, and 16 weeks, and wormed regularly
of age. Our veterinarian generally checks them over at 7 to 8
of age, and they are ready to leave for their new homes between 8 and 9
weeks. All puppies are now microchipped before leaving.
Parents and often grandparents (and even
are on the premises and waiting to meet you. As of 2016, we have
been breeding corgis for over 19 years. For your interest, you
can confirm any breeder's claims to OFA hip certification and the
recording of many other exams and tests by going to the OFA website and
proceeding with an Advanced Search - click here!

We are no longer doing any shipping - all puppies must be picked up.
How Immer Essen Farm puppies are brought up:
Our puppies are born in our bedroom and live there for about the first 3 weeks of their lives, after which they and their mom are moved into a family room of the house where they will be able to continue their socialization. At around 4 to 5 weeks, they are taken outside for "potty" several times a day, and between 5 and 6 weeks they pretty consistently no longer soil the home box. Crate training is started at 6 weeks so that they will be accustomed to a crate in their new homes. At this point, puppies go out for potty and people play in the morning, come back into the house for breakfast, and then go out again a bit later to spend the day in a play area, where lunch is served. They come back in the house in the evening for dinner and then are taken out around 11 p.m. for the last potty and people play session, coming back in to their crates until the morning. This routine has resulted in well socialized and clean AKC Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppies.
We would like to urge all prospective neuter/spay pet people to forget everything they ever heard or knew about male versus female dogs as pets and consider selecting a boy pup for their new pet corgi. We have been absolutely amazed at the friendly, low-key, companionable nature of the male corgis. We've seen no inappropriate sexual habits or displays from our boys, nor any of the bad habits which we have heard attributed to male dogs - the corgi boys are true and honest friends and are generally somewhat less mischievous than the corgi girls. We have added this note because we think it is both sad and unfair that so many people are unaware of the wonderful nature of the boys and can be prejudiced against them - and corgi boys do tend to be marvelous!
Do you suspect your corgi may be getting pudgy? Do you have questions about the proper amount to feed your corgi?

We have been looking for a DM clear boy pup to join our fellows. He must have a good pedigree with no close relatives to our corgi family, a beautiful face, level topline, and good bone, along with all the other characteristics of an excellent corgi. Parents must have passing hip certifications, eye certifications, and be vWD clear. Please get in touch with us if you have or know of such a fellow.
* While around 60% of all Pembroke Welsh Corgis tested have been found to be "at risk" for degenerative myelopathy,
a quite low percentage of these "at risk" dogs actually do develop the disease, which occurs late in life.
