I'm curious about some behaviors that other corgi owners experience with their own animals. I'm wondering if my dog is something exceptional, or if it just comes with the breed, that way I can definitely be on my toes when I bring in another fuzzchild to the family!
Please rate your corgi on these categories:
1.) Vocalization: 1-5, with 1 being nearly mute, and 5 being very chatty!
2.) Obedience: 1-5, with 1 being very challenging, and 5 being a star performer
3.) Activity: 1-5, with 1 being very lazy, and 5 being a top-notch gogetter!
4.) Appetite: 1-5, with 1 being a self-conscious healthy eater, and 5 being a serious oinker
5.) Social Skills: 1-5, with 1 being a poor sport, and 5 being well-mannered and plays nice
I will start with my own 3 year old corgi and my first dog, Sofi...
1.) 1- Sofi barely EVER speaks, and when she does it's usually if she's been stepped on.
2.) 5- Sofi was incredibly easy to train! Definitely born to please.
3.) 1- Sofi is very laid back, ashamedly to say I barely have time to ever walk her, but she gets along with her arrangement just fine with no destructive behavior and not a single drip of hyperactivity...
4.) 1- I give Sofi an open bowl of food, I fill a big bowl to the brim and she goes and eats about half a cup of food in the morning and half a cup of food again in the evening of her own free will. She's very slim and is in no way over or underweight, at a solid 26 pounds.
5.) 4- Sofi developed some guarding behavior with her food when my boyfriend's voracious and ill-behaved pug came onto the picture; the pug got into the habit of stealing from Sofi's food bowl and eating all her food, so she will stomp the ground if he gets close and barks if he grabs a kernel from her dish. Otherwise, she plays really well at the dog park and with my mother's dog, a westie.
