I just started taking Coco to a dog park to socialize him. We went there twice and found out that he wants to dominate everyone (dogs). He does so well with males, very friendly, and play together,…Continue
"We had an intact male Labrador Retreiver when I was a teenager, and he was the mellowest, sweetest dog. Not an aggressive bone in his body.
That said, every dog is different and some males get more studly than others! LOL. But I agree this…"
"That is great Joanna! When I first read this the thing that came to mind was obedience classes. I don't know anything about intact male dogs but I do know that most of us need a little help with training. Even after years of classes I still…"
"I will second what Joanna said. The socialization window closes, as I have heard it, at 16 weeks and after that what would come naturally needs to be trained/ handled in a more supervised setting. Take him to a quieter place with a few…"
"The idea that neutering changes behavior is SUCH a huge myth. Even vets and trainers will tell you that intact dogs are more aggressive or somehow dangerous. It's nonsense. Having reproductive organs is the natural state of a dog; it's not…"

At Winter Springs dog park last weekend, I met 2 other corgis. They were…"
We're headed to Barber. Barber Park is located just north-west of the Orlando International Airport off Gatlin Avenue between South Conway Road and Dixie Belle Drive. The Dog Park is located within the larger Barber Park at the far north-west corner. We will meet in the small dog area.
"That's true, Beth. As much as I want coco to have his baby in the future, it won't be "a" baby, babiES! With the issue of so many abandoned dogs out there these days, that might not be a good idea.
He didn't get to…"
"Thank you Melissa! In the back of my mind, I want him to have his offspring. Just because if he dies before me, his baby will still be there. But then I have to have a female corgi too. That's gonna be alot of work.. Still have some thinking to…"
"Have you had Coco since he was a puppy? Was he socialized with other dogs then? Socialization windows are quite small and while an older dog can certainly learn better behaviors with new experiences, it's easiest to socialize a puppy.
