Always wanted Corgis, but just finally broke down and got Coco when I turned 40! He's a charmer. Didn't take long before I rescued another - Teddy. Now I have "The Bear Boys," Coco Bear & Teddy Bear. I work in Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance, am married - but only have furry or feathered children (3 dogs, 1 cat - and 1 winged talker).
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Coco is a September 2008 tri-color baby, a real clown! He is an agility pup, but is also good at basic obedience. He is a rescue from a local non-breed specific group. Teddy is a red & white adopted 1 year later from a Pets Second Chance Corgi Rescue. He is only 1 month younger than Coco and has been a terrific addition. He is really smart, but hard headed.
Where do you compete? My daughter was competing with a local 4H group, but grew tired of it. Now I need to find something else, but I'm not sure we are ready for the stuffiness of the AKC. There's also a local obedience club, but with 4 dogs, that could really blow our budget.
Roxy has competed in 4H events - nothing serious yet - and she has done very well. My 14 yr old daughter works with her and can get her to do anything. We jump at 12 inches with ease! She measures 12 inches at the shoulder and is not at all big for a corgi, so I'm kind of wondering what the concern for 8 inches is (I've seen it in passing before.) Roxy is very fit and muscular, quiet a leaper!
We made our own agility equipment and set it up in the back yard. We work with all the dogs for fun. All of them take the jumps at 12 inches.
Hello! Yes I am still using the vest harness and raving about it, I have had it only about 1 1/2 weeks!!! I am taking Lance on small drives to get him used to it! When I first bought it I used it to take him for a walk and as soon as I took it out of the package he ran to me, like he knew he was going for a walk!!! We briefly tried out the restraint part on the way home last week and he did ok. When I went to take it out again to go for a drive without telling him what we were doing, he ran away from me!! : ( I figured I better start bringing treats with him so he gets used to this in the car and will like it! We have been going on little short rides here and there and he seems to be adjusting. I am soooo glad I found it! I bought it at a pet boutique store near me, so I am not sure where else you can find them, do you have any pet boutique stores near you, that you can check? Here is the website that you can inquire about where to find them. www. email@example.com or www.caninefriendly.com. Hope you can find it! Thanks for responding!
