Take heart! You already have good advice about NIFL, Cesar, and Victoria It's amazing that you don't need to hire a trainer, but you have to train yourself, and you have to be consistent. We almost…"
"Lindsey, I also wanted to mention to you that many corgis , in the absence of a clear leader, will take over. It is very stressful for them and not healthy for anyone. This is a working breed that was used to tell a 2 ton cow what to do and keep…"
"Here is a list of recognized AKC CGC (Canine Good Citizen) Evaluators. That is your best shot of finding a reputable dog trainer. Many CGC Evaluators are actually pretty decent dog trainers. I know the one back in my hometown was…"
I also live in rural Missouri. If you feel like you need help "Bark Busters" will come to you. I live an hour from where our trainer comes from (Springfield) and he goes up to Waynesville and all the way south…"
"He is neutered, the pug is not yet spayed but will be soon. I think the biggest obstacle with the training is going to get my husband to do what I tell him! :P He always feels bad for Buzz when Buzz doesn't get his way which is part of why Buzz…"
"Are both the dogs spayed or neutered now? If not that would be my first move. Certainly it will not solve everything but it may help, especially with the leg lifting. Definitely keep up with the NILF training, both you and your husband need to…"
"They used to share a crate, but do not any longer. Let me clarify, when I first moved in about a year ago, Buzz and my pug got along pretty well. It took him awhile to get used to her being in his territory, but eventually they became friends…"
"Google Nothing In Life Is Free and begin it immediately! Your husband has to do it too. It will work but consistency is key. Also, make sure Buzz has at minimum of at least 2 half hour walks a day. As for aggression towards the other dog you can…"
"Lindsey, I feel for you it is hard to come into a relationship and try to take responsibility for a dog that has been a one person dog, and that person isn't you. Also look at it from Buzz's point of view. A person that his owner loves…"
My husband's corgi, Buzz, seems to be going completely insane.Avery's had Buzz since before we started dating and I feel obligated to connect with his dog, but I find it hard to have a good relationship with Buzz. While my husband and I were dating and living separately, he'd bring Buzz to visit and, on occasion, I'd keep Buzz for a week or so. Buzz was great! He got along with my pug, he got along with me, and I never had any problems with him. After I moved in with my husband, Buzz seemed to…See More
I've got two dogs, a pug and a Pembroke welsh corgi, and a lazy orange tabby cat.
My husband and I both love animals, though he is more of a dog person where as I am an all-animal person :P We love our pets and try to do whatever we can to maintain positive relationships with them!

About My Corgi(s):
We only have one corgi, Buzz, and I plan to keep it that way. Buzz is my husband's dog and has had him since before we started dating. Buzz has had a lot of confusion throughout his puppyhood, and is now an aggressive nightmare most days. Other days, he's the sweet loving corgi that I keep wishing I'd see more of. I do love Buzz, but he needs help!

Welcome to MyCorgi Lindsey. I think if you read some of the stories your impression of corgis would change! Corgis are very smart, loyal, friendly dogs who can be bossy (they need to be to herd animals) so need to be trained correctly.
