About Me:
I'm a dogaholic, if this word was in the dictionary, it's definition would be me. I'm one of those people that will oh and ah over every single dog I see, and interact with them at any opportunity I can get. I love all animals, but dogs are a definite favorite. I have and always will want to have a dog.

I first fell in love with Corgis when I was a kid - it was a picture of a howling blue merle Cardi in a book about puppies (that I still have somewhere). I was absolutely fascinated with the little dog but could find little information about its breed other than a brief description in the said book. Many years later I finally saw one in real life and again could only think about how stunning they are. When I started researching a possible breed of dog that I'd like to own, I somehow ended up looking at Corgis again. After much more thorough research, I now know that Corgis are not only stunningly beautiful, but also have a great fun personality that I think will fit my lifestyle perfectly. So here I am - completely in love with Corgis!
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
No
About My Corgi(s):
Philip was born on March 3rd, 2008 and I brought him home in late June at 16 weeks old.
He is my joy and laughter every single day and can bring a smile to anyone's face. He has a very fun and loving personality, he loves peoples, he loves kids, he loves other dogs, and has never met a creature he didn't like.
We frequently enjoy outings to the local dog park, where he fraps with all dogs, big or small. We also love to join our local Corgi meetup group in parks for some Corgi fun!
Philip is learning Agility and hopes to soon be able to enter a real competition! He truly enjoys going to class every week and is doing great at all the obstacles.
I have:
Pembroke

I read your blog and have a comment and a suggestion. If they're knocking bars usually it means they don't know where their take off point is for the jump. They either think they need to be closer to the jump than they need to be when they take off, or they're taking off too soon and not clearing the jump. When they start pushing their speed, they might flatten their jump and knock the bar but that's still actually a take off issue. If they were a little closer to the jump at take off the jump wouldn't be so flat.

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!).

Wait...is this Sidney's friend Phillip?? OMG I had no idea! How funny. I didn't recognize him in the photo, hee hee. I'm glad to hear he's feeling better. It was right after the photo shoot day and I didn't remember him being any crazier than usual. And you know Sidney, he does not run nearly as much as Phillip does!

Happy late birthday! I was looking at the old post of what you were trying to name your pup--had to come and find out the end result! Lol, Phillip is a great name.

So glad to hear you're getting a Corgi soon. Can't wait to see your pics! I'm with you on being a dogaholic!

Re: question about young pups coming in to pwccsc.org, most I've seen have been around 3. My Koda was only 8 months when he was sprung from the shelter. Toby is an owner-surrender. I'm seeing more corgis in pet stores and they look so fun and easy. At home is a different story. They take time, work, love and training. Most are overwhelmed.

C-Love - as you can see, a Pem owner love's their breed, as does a Cardi-owner. You can go to the person who replied to your post and check out their photo's and see more of that breed (in real life) - some of the photo's are great, and will certainly make you smile. In California, there are quite a few "Performance clubs" - where cardigans and pems come to do "agility" work and you might be able to see both - call a local trainer and find out.
