If anyone has any experience or advice, please help. Rufus use to be the most submissive puppy ever. He's only almost turning 3. I take him to the park for walks at least 4 times a week with dog…Continue

OK, I tried to go back on old discussions to see if anything would relate, but a lot of it was for indoor problems.My Rufus has gotten so bad as far as marking things. (just in case anyone ask, he…Continue

Girth Size--growing? Harness help

Started this discussion. Last reply by Anna Morelli Mar 6, 2012. 3 Replies

I'm trying a new harness that I'm getting online for Rufus's 2nd birthday (dean and tyler harness), the sizing seems to be a bit tricky though. They go off of Girth size alone. The XS is 20-23" and…Continue

I just took my 1-year old Corgi into the Vet yesterday and got some X-Rays done on his front arms. The Vet was a little concerned it might be elbow dysplasia, but is waiting for the Radiologist to…Continue

"Hmm well I think Corgi's do take a good pounding from other dogs, maybe it is a factor in the mood swings."

Beth replied to Krystina and Rufus's discussion Help--becoming a grumpy old man!
"Jack doesn't get grumpy, but he used to play with other dogs all the time and now he rarely does. I personally feel it's because he has been landed on more than once by big, bouncy dogs; Corgis are so strong and act like big dogs, but most…"

"That's so interesting that every dog has their problem area. I still can't tell what ticks my little one off besides the staring thing. If he passes the introductory smell/sniff test, he will usually flop over and be submissive. But if…"

Geri & Sidney replied to Krystina and Rufus's discussion Help--becoming a grumpy old man!
"When Sidney turned around three he got quite reactive to bigger dogs. It's also around when he had surgery on his rear left leg for dislocation due to hip dysplasia. He's fine with dogs his size and smaller, but if a bigger dogs tries to…"

Ben, Angelique, and Buddy replied to Krystina and Rufus's discussion Help--becoming a grumpy old man!
"Thats sounds exactly like Buddy when he meets new dogs. He is fine with small dogs, but only wants to smell and not play. I still have issues with meeting larger dogs, but mostly the breeds with pointy ears. My sister owns a border collie mix and…"

"Interesting...   in Chewey's case I just attributed it to the fact that he has been jumped by a couple difference boxers now (fortunately not seriously).   But I think you are right that it has something to do with the…"

Krystina and Rufus replied to Krystina and Rufus's discussion Help--becoming a grumpy old man!
"I think you have just described Rufus perfectly. He absolutely does not like boxers now. (not sure if it's because they have that staring face mixed with their energy). I actually stopped going to petsmart because for some reason, there are a…"

Diane replied to Krystina and Rufus's discussion Help--becoming a grumpy old man!
"I keep checking this thread in the hopes that someone here has some brilliant advice/ideas for this...  Chewey has also definitely gotten grumpier with other dogs as he's matured.  Not exactly sure how old he is now, maybe 3 - 3 1/2…"

"I never thought of it. I should take him for his check-up. He does have elbow dysplasia I found out when he turned 1, but with his vitamins (Flavocin), his limp has almost completely dissappeared in the last year....So strange"
Jan 19, 2013
Krystina and Rufus replied to Krystina and Rufus's discussion Help--becoming a grumpy old man!
"Yes! that's how he is. I keep him on a short leash now. If a dog's staring at him, I don't even let him approach them.  He's super sensative around dogs that stare. He's met a few new dogs, usually if 1) the pack all…"

"Yes, He's definetely aggresive around food (with other dogs) not people...but yeah that's what I think is he just skipped the happy calm adult age and went straight to grumpy old man... He loves his friends but that's about it. As…"

Bev Levy replied to Krystina and Rufus's discussion Help--becoming a grumpy old man!
"I think he has matured into adulthood at this point and likes his personal space. My Izzy is that way, she is ok as long as other dogs just sniff once and leave her alone. If they don't she will start to curl her lip and get snarly. My Sparty…"

My mom loves to cuddle with the corgis..She is 84 with a lot of energy, but really loves to have the pups on her lap or at her feet.. i wish she was strong enough to have a dog all the time...at least during the summer. We bring their crates and camp in her back yard. They have found how they love the ocean too, down at Dog Beach in Huntington Beach-)
