If you’ve been keeping up with the royals and know anything at all about Queen Elizabeth II, chances are you’ve heard about her love for Pembroke Welsh Corgis. The Queen has had more than thirty corgis in her lifetime from the age of eighteen and considers them a part of her family. While she is contented with leading a simple life, her beloved corgis definitely get the full royal treatment. We take a closer look at the pampered lives of these pups and how you can give your own furkid the same indulgent (but totally necessary!) care.Source: Deine-tierwelt

In a castle with a hundred rooms, we suppose everyone – human and furkid – can have quarters of their own! The Queen’s Corgis don’t sleep on her bed nor in her room – they get a bedroom all to themselves! Furthermore, they don’t have to share beds. Each Corgi is given a wicker bed padded with the softest wool blanket, and they are not regular dog beds as well – each bed has feet to lift them off the ground, so as not to catch a draft. With our tropical climate it is unlikely that we have drafts, so a regular comfy dog bed will do the trick! We love the Sherpa Bagel Dog Bed for its easily cleaned waterproof outer, poly-cotton blends and bolsters that your pet can rest on. It is also extremely durable, and comes in six different sizes and various colours. Or if you prefer, browse the wide variety of options available at one of the many local pet shops in Singapore.Canine catering Source: Pinterest
The royal staff caters to the Queen, and the Queen caters to her canines – literally! Each week, Queen Elizabeth II signs off on a royal menu prepared by her personal chefs. The menu would list down the different meals the corgis would be served every day, ranging from organically raised chicken to steak and even rabbit freshly hunted by Prince Harry and Prince William! Each protein would be poached and diced into extremely small pieces to ensure there were no bones that they dogs might potentially choke on. The corgis are served in their own personal porcelain bowls, and there have been instances where they eat off an actual silver platter!Source: Instagram
While you may not have royal chefs cooking for your pup nor the time to do it yourself, you can still celebrate milestones with your furry friend with resplendent, freshly baked dog treats from Singapore pet bakery, Barking Good! Be it cakes, cupcakes, pizza or even vegetarian biscotti, this bakery has everything you need to throw the ultimate puppy party for your precious pet.Personal trainers Source: Pinterest
All dogs need daily exercise and it is important that we bring them on walks, but the Queen’s hunting dogs get some extra special treatment. Hunting dogs need to be kept occupied when they are not busy hunting, so the Queen has dog trainers who exercise them 4 times a day! As for her corgis, well, whether Her Majesty is back home in England or abroad, she makes sure that her furry family goes on a brisk walk every single morning. With so many dogs under her care her entire life, that is a whole lot of commitment that we can admire, but also emulate! Whether rain or shine, always ensure that your pets get the necessary exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle.Source: Pinterest
It appears that the Queen’s pets are not just hers to cherish, but hold a special place in the hearts of the entire royal family. Likewise, our loyal pets deserve all the love we can give them, and you can bet that they’ll stick by your side for as long as they can!
