|Make sure you socialize, socialize and then socialize, both with people and with other dogs. Corgi's are a herding breed and as such, are not bred to be "dog park" social butterflies, they are bred to work alone without humans or other dogs and can be quite antisocial if proper attention is not spent socializing them as youngsters.
Make sure you purchase from a reputable breeder who does ALL health testing on the parents as this breed is also prone to serious skeletal and back issues, most of which can be hereditary. Keep you pup lean to help prevent back injury as well.
Oh yeah, I also second the furminator!!! As a groomer we HATE to see Corgis come in because we know we are looking at HOURS of removing undercoat!!
Finally, have fun!!!
