Welp, we made the dive and got another corgi pup. Oddly enough it hasn't been that long since Cricket was his age and I've already forgotten how rough it is to raise a pup.. Sigh!
We got Cricket when she was 8 weeks old. A clean slate, so to speak.. She has turned out to be a magical first dog! But Brian is a little over 4 months old. We've missed quite a lot and fear we may have missed an important age. He's rather sassy. We are trying to stay consistent and be more stubborn than he is. Bought man, is it rough..
He's food aggressive toward Cricket. She does well at staying away from his food after we tell her to leave it. But sadly he's like that with the water and toys, too. Anyone have any ace ways of helping me teach him that sharing is A-OK and he doesn't need to fight for his toys and water?
We are avoiding tug-o-war with him for now because it seems like he's attempting to be the alpha dog around here.. And I don't even want to deal with that.
I just want to fix his aggression issues while he's 4-5 months old, versus dealing when them as he gets older.
We plan on puppy classes for Brian, and for Cricket again. But right now we don't have that sort of extra money floating around.
