"God bless my little Butterball, but she is an awful puller as well. I always call her my little sled dog the way she pulls. I've tried so many things under the moon to try and curb the pulling but she is a stubborn little one.…"
"What Jane said is exactly the way to correct pulling. For an advanced puller you have to have a lot of patience and be willing to spend alot of time turning around but as soon as the dog tightens up the leash turn quickly. Only continue on if the…"
"Our trainer at PetSmart helped us pick out a harness, and Bogart does not mind it at all. The part that goes under his "armpits" has a fuzzy covering for comfort and there is a mesh piece over the breast bone. Brand name is Sporn.…"
Hello. I have two corgis who are awful pullers. I really want to have pleasant walks with them. I am currently in training classes with one of them. I have a harness that I used on Gracie and tried it on Dyson and it needs adjustments. He did not seem comfortable with it. When I used it in Gracie, she would trip on leash. This harness was recommended by trainer but I don't think it works well on the corgi body. I want to see what you all use on your corgis.
"Hi Dad or Bogart, We will to get together but it will be hard for us to make a weekly commitment. I have kids in sports and I am pretty booked up. We would love to try to meet sometime thought. Keep us in the loop."
"I am sorry I have been AWOL but we have been running around like crazy. I will write more later but the short answer is YES we would like together soon. I will ask Canine Capers if they every do open houses or anything."
Adopted a 9 week old fluffy Pembroke Corgi on May 10 (Mother's Day). Was owned a 15 1/2 year old Corgi-mix for over 15 years until she went to the Rainbow Bridge on April 28. We found a breeder and got Gracie. She was born on March 5, 2009. She keeps us laughing all of the time. My husband and I don't have kids so we feel that Gracie is our baby. If we survive puppyhood, we hope to adopt a baby Corgi brother in another year or so. It is a challenge having a puppy after all of these years with an adult dog!
Update: Gracie is growing into a wonderful dog. She has calmed down a lot. She is still a bit mischievous but we love her to death. We're hoping to get her a brother puppy later this year!
Update: We brought in another fluffy Corgi pup on Father's Day of this year. His name is Dyson. He and Gracie get along great. It is wonderful having two now!

About My Corgi(s):
Gracie - Fluffy, but beautiful Pembroke, Dyson - Fluffy, Born 3/28/2010
We have two corgis also, and I love them both beyond reason! Your corgis are so beautiful I would just want to spend all day petting them, there fluffyness is just gorgeous! I am sure there is no shortage of hugs and pets at your house! Keep posting your great pictures.
Hi Dara and Gracie - Actually I posted Dano's pup picture on this site but he is 1 year and 5 months now - - my hubbie and I are so addicted to Pembrokes! I want to learn all I can about possible agility trials, herding and just socializing with other addicts - LOL!
Would be great to get a group of cori's together for a play day/picnic. I see a lot of other cities that have big Corgi meetups and it makes me want to get something together for the Atlanta area corgi's.
Gracie has a brother? That is wonderful! I hope little Dyson is fitting in well. I have been off the site for so long, I feel really out of the loop. I had a note from another local (Victoria) about getting together. Maybe we can meet when/if the weather gets cooler. I look forward into seeing what a pretty little lady Gracie has become. Cindi
