Started this discussion. Last reply by Einstein Batista Jan 1, 2011. 22 Replies

I am a runner who hasn't run in a year (I decided to take the year off) but I'm itching to start again.  I think our corgi Floyd would benefit from the exercise as well but I'm wondering if other…Continue

"Your crate should be just slightly larger than your dog, so a corgi size crate should fit in the back seat of almost any vehicle."

"With one of my dogs I tried EVERYTHING for 14 years. Nothing helped. He was, ahem, too stupid. (not a corgi). He would even roll his crate in the back of the car. Eventually we gave up, put him in his crate, wedged it in tightly, and endured. My…"

Barking in the Car

My dog Floyd feels the need to bark constantly in the car on th way to a destination.  He's not scared but excited because most of the time we're going hiking or to the dog park.  He hasn't always done this either so I'm assuming we made a misstep in training at some point.  He doesn't do it on the way home because he's worn out but the ride to the fun is absolutely infuriating (for me- he's having a great time).  Driving to a park with a dog barking in my ear the whole way is not my idea of…See More

"I run all the time spontaneously with Ein. He loves it but he'll grab the leash if he wants to be pulled of if he wants me to stop. My vet says that you should start light-5 min at first for a week, then boost it up 5 min at a time."
