I took a jumping seminar from Susan Salo last year. She used to run corgis and knows a lot about them. When we worked on Dudley she would set the jumps up special for him because of him being a corgi. She says that because of the short legs and long back they sometimes think they need to be closer to the jump to take off then they actually need to be. We'd angle an extra bar in front of the jump so make him take off a littler further back from the bar. Maybe that would help your guy not knock bars?
I can recommend Susan Salo's videos but it's better to take a class from her. The video is actually a class that was recorded and can be a bit dry to slog through. But the material is really good and the exercises are great. The variable bounce is an exercise I still do with Dudley.
I was impressed enough with the seminar that now that my dog has more drive, I'm taking the seminar again (and it's not cheap!).
