Corgi on the trail - tree jumping video

Started this discussion. Last reply by GPN Aug 16, 2013. 3 Replies

I guess I've been slothful (it shows on my waist line) but I have recently gotten more serious about exercise and hiking.  I was concerned how Dipper would handle the real world trails and trees and…Continue

My neighbor was again inspired by the force of Corgi personality to do another portrait!  She says that if anyone is interested in a Corgi portrait she takes commissions.  She can be contacted below.…Continue

Corgeniscia Canetitis

I was stunned to learn today that Dipper is really a poodle.  It turns out that many dogs get infected at a young age with Corgeniscia Canetitis a devastating virus which causes their leg development…Continue

"Alcohol = bingo!   This guy was 55 with no priors; no history of animal abuse either.  Very unusual.  But for an addiction problem to be going a bit too far, combined with ownership of nine guns, THAT is a  recipe for bad news.…"

Corgi on the trail - tree jumping video

I guess I've been slothful (it shows on my waist line) but I have recently gotten more serious about exercise and hiking.  I was concerned how Dipper would handle the real world trails and trees and things that one finds on a trail.  I was surprised at how capable he is and he absolutely loves being outside.  Here is a video of him jumping over trees.  One of the trees came up between my knee and thigh, I'd say that's pretty good.I made a 25 second video.…See More

GPN replied to GPN's discussion Diet, weight, food type
"Your 2% rule is pretty close to where I am with the Purina Pro Plan which is 1/2 cup twice a day, a cup being 8 ounces, and if you work the math the 8 ounces is 2% of a 27 lb corgi's weight.   It gets a bit harder when I feed him other…"

GPN replied to Rizn's discussion Food mixer suggestions?
"Well for his basic kibble (in my case Purina Pro Plan) I just use the stuff the breeder gave him as a pup and recommended.  I guess it might be an issue if adopting an adult and not knowing the previous diet.   I also feed Dipper two…"

GPN replied to Rizn's discussion Food mixer suggestions?
"This is true.  Dipper turned up his nose at dry kibble.  When he was in his first year I went against vet's advice and let him be a bit heavier (he got up to 29 and change at one point) because--not something I've read but true…"

Symmetrical Corgi

Posted on April 27, 2012 at 5:52pm 7 Comments

For a math class on symmetry in 6th grade, my son had to use a photo of a symmetrical animal and draw in one half.

"What immortal hand or eye/dare frame they fearful symmetry?"…

Leash training: how I stopped the lagging Corgi syndrome

Posted on March 20, 2012 at 1:52pm 0 Comments

My dog, like many on this list, was not a leash-puller from in front but from behind.  I was very inspired by this video:

dog leash video  

My puppy had become extremely leash resistant, it was a struggle getting him to the corner.   Putting treats down as the woman in the video does helped a lot to break that dynamic.  I also took a hint from a training book and…

I can't believe this - Kevlar vest

I joked about a kevlar vest for the Corgi to keep him clean in Susan D's thread but there REALLY IS a kevlar vests option for Corgis, looks like they make them to measurements!!!
