"That sounds good. If you can't do a class with Maisie, start some formal obedience on your own, there are many simple good books. Keep in mind that some dogs just don't like other dogs and this is quite normal, especially in certain…"
"No no - we don't have two out of control dogs. Only one. Milo's really sweet and calm. It's Maisie who has "issues". :)
When I walk Milo alone, he sees another dog and is like, "whatever" and he's great with…"
"Jennifer, you write " we "dominate" him by pinning him to the ground, and we stand over him. He generally calms down once we do this, but if he doesn't we keep him down until he's just laying there. We make him lay there for…"
"Nellie, the advice they gave you at the HS is correct. Walk them separately, even if you have to cut the time each one is walked in half. There is only one of you! They will adjust. With one, you can implement many of the good…"
"Yeah, 1-2 private lessons with a good trainer was well worth the $$ spent... It just gave us a good start on things to practice on our own.
Unfortunately the seaweed guarding is proving to be a bit hazardous to his health... Most dogs…"
We're hoping that a private trainer will be able to help quell the issues. Your story has helped to relieve some frustration. That's so funny that Chewey guards seaweed! What a healthy lil pup... now he just needs some rice…"

Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Finnegan is the sweetest little guy with the biggest personality! He came to us when he was 4 months old from a breeder in Missouri & he is now 1. We definitely have kinks to work out & we need some obedience/behavior advice. He is sweet, intelligent & extremely stubborn. He is very protective of his people and dog buddies which was initially great but is becoming a problem.
I guess I forgot to update my profile - I have moved to Apple Valley in the high desert on the way to Vegas. Anyway, I used an excellent dog trainer for a couple of years down there. His name is John Rubin - www.johnknowsdogs.com - he has reputable trainers working for him that hold classes in numerous locations in North County. It may seem costly, however, he offers different packages for different needs and that is the way to go. I have the ultimate package for my weimaraner and Kenny, my corgi, and I can go to his classes for the entire life of my dogs. In fact, I have to be down there after Thanksgiving and I am going to try to take both of my dogs to one or two classes. Mocha, the weim, just loved going to obedient classes. They are structured, questions are answered - John's packages also include in home visits to help the owner in the dogs own environment. Kenny, after he matured some, enjoyed it too. I got them both CGC certified through John. The classes are fun, you meet other dogs and owners in a controlled environment - I really loved going. I see your dog is wearing the Triple Crown collar. Kenny & Mocha each have one - I love it AND it is a collar that John advocates. Good Luck!!!!
They are 16 months and 4 yrs old. I didn't even baby sit when I was growing up, so being with kids is all new to me. So my 1st son went for 3 yrs w 4 peoples lives revolving around him. Me, my husband, and my parents. Esp Grandpa. Whenever I say No to him he starts crying for Grandpa. Drives me out of my mind!!! Not many pics of him posted bc I took so many of him that he now refuses to let me take a picture.
