I just wanted to see if any one else's corgi's do this and it was a corgi trait. When I take my corgi's for a walk and they get tired. They both flop on their belly's and refuse to move. I call this flat dog.
Flat dog syndrome; I like that tag. My guy, Niki is known for pulling that trick, more so on my daughter and husband than on me. The minute he plops down I give him a tug just behind his head. I just got back from a short vacation so it will be interesting to see what he challenges. Niki has a vey sharp little mind of his own but that just makes him all the more fun.
I like that term "flat dog".....good one.
Yes!! I used to cut our walks short because I thought he was tired but noticed he'll sometimes do it only after 15minutes. When Steve would do it during longer walks I thought he was trying to cool his tummy since he does it under a huge tree or in a nice shade. It's kinda embarrassing when he does it in a crowded park...
