How Fast Can a Corgi Run?

A corgi can run up to 25 miles per hour. Corgis were originally bred to herd cattle so they needed to run fast to keep up with the larger animals, but also had to be agile enough to avoid being kicked or trodden on.

While they’re enthusiastic sprinters and can race round agility circuits with ease, they’re not built for endurance running. If you’re looking for a dog that can accompany you on short runs (up to 2 miles), or join you on long walks, a corgi will be a perfect companion. On the other hand, long-distance runs can even cause injury or long-term damage. So if you want a breed that can run marathons with you, corgis are not the right choice.
