"I work at a veterinarian office as a vet tech assistant and we just got a dremmel to start using. The dogs seem to respond to it better than the clipping because its a constant noise rather than the sharp pop of clipping nails. Also you can get…"
"About Kipper getting upset when you pet another dog: Chester is quite territorial, too. He doesn't want any other dogs near any of us (his pack, after all).
I've picked up good training tips from two sources: The Monks of New Skete (they…"
"The furminator! We use this on Chester and a metal comb - works very well. We didn't know how much corgis shed until we put down our deposit on 8 week old Chester, went to the pet store to get supplies and saw pictures of corgis on the…"
"Lucky has the don't touch my feet syndrome...one vet thought she could do his nails and went through an entire can of Easy Cheese and didn't get one nail done!! I find that some groomers or vet techs are better than others (he won't…"
"One of my corgis had the same thing. The vet suggested a few things already mentioned by a few people such as doing more walking on grass, etc. She also mentioned that it is possible that was a result of the dog pulling -- which is done by digging…"
"He's too little to be doing much running. I don't like them to be roadworked (i.e., run or trotted for any distance) before they're 18 months to two years old. He's probably getting very fatigued and starting to drag his front…"
"One of corgi runs by dragging his feet also-vet told me not to trim them, as they are already too short, even if ragged- that might cause bleeding- we also only walk on hard surfaces and run on grass, snow, or beach, our corgi is a bit chubby and we…"
"That's weird... just the other day I noticed the nails bleeding on my corgi! My boyfriend was baby-sitting him while I was at work and he said they played a lot of fetch that day. His nails were VERY short and I haven't cut them in months.…"
"I never bathe either my Corgi or my White Shepherd - I just brush them on a regular basis, and they look great. No smell at all - that's probably due to their great diet. I use a pin brush most of the time, and lately have had amazing results…"
"Edward hates to be brushed--to the max...looks pitiful and moans to me the whole time. Loves the treat at the end but it is like torture. He even goes into his crate if he sees me pick up the brush--so I do the bate and switch--switch brush and…"
"Mini hates to have her feet touched to begin with , we had her nails done only 2 times so far and she is 6 months now. She screams like we are murdering her, and this has been done by my friend who IS A DOG GROOMER, and she really sruggles with…"
From Vallejo too, check out my two corgis, We go to the dog park alot we should get together some time and let them play. I have cardigans named Captain and Malibu. Captain will be 6 months on the 21st and Malibu is a little over 2 years. Great to see ya here.
Temperament is one thing but also looking at the standard w/health testing as well. Even having a fine specimen isn't always the best option to breed. Alot goes into it to protect the safety of your dog and the puppies he produces. If you would like to discuss this further you may give me a call and where we can discuss this in depth. Its alot of information to know.
