Corgis are not very high maintenance when it comes to grooming, and it's easy to do it yourself at home with the right tools. I've tried all sorts of tools and products over the last 7 years and these are my absolute favorite.

I originally bought this brush after seeing many corgi breeders/handlers use it at dog shows. Our corgis get brushed with this at least 2-3 times a week and it gets all the loose hairs out while keeping the coat fluffy, clean and shiny.
For years, I used tiny sewing scissors to trim the paw pad fur, which was such a struggle (and took forever). I now use this electric cordless paw pad trimmer once a week, and I can trim all 4 paws in a couple of minutes.
We grind our dogs' nails with a Dremel once a week with a 120-grit sanding band. We already had a regular multi-purpose Dremel, which works just fine for us, but if you don't already own one, I've included the link to the Cordless Pet Dremel which is smaller and much more convenient!
This is another product highly recommended by show breeders. It's great for getting any stains out and really brightens up the white parts of the fur. When using this, leave it on for at least 5 minutes before rinsing.
This pet dryer is AWESOME. Although it does have a heat option, we don't need it at all. It literally blows away all the water from the coat and fully dries a plush coat quickly. It also blows out all the loose undercoat and helps to minimize shedding.
Just FYI – you really shouldn't be using a human hair dryer on a double-coated breed. Human hair dryers primarily rely on heat to dry the hair and it doesn't have enough power to thoroughly dry the thick undercoat.
