Hi Renee, So how are things going? I hope we get a chance to get together soon. And if it doesn't work out for this fall to get a larger group together, maybe we could plan something for next summer. The reason I shy away from shock collars is our Otto was quite the stubborn guy in basic training and we used a German pinch collar. He did well with it, trained no problem. But about 2 years later, when ever he would hear the noise of the collar he would run for his kennel. But I did see the trainers use a shock collar with an aggresive dog and it didn't seem to bother him.
Sounds like you had a good day with Ed. I don't know mine would want to herd, they play til they drop with my brothers dog. They do sometimes herd my son and his friend, when they are playing. Gracie herds Gunner when he plays hockey with my son. Pretty funny watching her actually. Instead of nipping at his heels she actually grabs his little hind leg, almost like it is a chicken leg!! But I could never use a shock collar, yikes! The woman you spoke with was that for the Howell or Hines park? Hopefully we will get an Indian Summer and plan an outing.
That sounds great. We could get together at your place and then possibly plan a bigger one at your daughters. And the fact she is a photographer is a bonus. Let me know what you think. I also am not fond of vaccinations, we think it is what caused our previous corgi to have seizures. So we do a modified system. Our vet draws titers and if they are low, vaccinate otherwise skip it.
We live in Dearborn Heights. We are getting the dog park pass this week. The park is in Livonia, Edward Hines Park. Maybe we can go there. Our yard is small and 2 dogs is about the max :o) Also I heard from Bev Levy, she is outside of Lansing, she will be planning a get together soon. That was the 24th. We have 2 pems Gracie and Gunner. both are 2. By the way Ed is very cute! And welcome to mycorgi
