My babies are not made for fences. Since we have had to move to my daughters they are in a different enclosure. My poor little girl Brandi nicked her nose trying to find a way out. She shared the…Continue
I am 73 years old and recently became sick. I had to move in with my daughter and her children who have bad allergies! My babies are use to being inside with me at night and most of daytime. My daughter has a poodle mix who has brain damage. There is no way I can give them the home they deserve! My daughter is not in the best of health herself so they will not get the attention they deserve. We are doing the best we can at the moment. My daughter had a real nice doghouse built for them and its their first night alone. We put up a little fenced in area for them. It's killing me, the stress alone. I know my daughter will do the best she can, but can only handle so much. My disorder has become such a struggle she has to help me with everything, even getting dressed and getting out of bed. I have two females. Callie 6 and Brandi who's 4. Both are spayed. My boy Dusty is 7. He is not neutered. They are the sweetest, spunkiest little angels ever. I cry everytime I think about loosing them, but I'm willing to give them to someone who I consider a great caregiver. If something happens to me I can't stand the thought of not knowing how they will be cared for. I need to know they will be well loved and not neglected! Please get in touch with me if anybody out there is a corgi lover like me. Most people want puppies I know. Hopefully, there are some people out there who would not mind having loving dogs like mine. They of course are housebroken. They adore being around children. Protective of my grandbabies.

About My Corgi(s):
They are loving, protective of kids, spunky babies! They are spoiled rotten and are in great need of an owner who will love and care for them they way I do or better lol!!
Ronald, it's not about the treats - I'm sure the dogs like the kids - it's about the Corgi's natural herding instinct which is carried out by nipping, especially in a group of multiple Corgis combined with the children being kind of new to then and very exciting. Keeping the excitement down a bit and adding a little structure, or limiting the number free to interact at one time can all be helpful, especially in this initial adjustment period. The Corgis need to learn their limits with the children and the children their limits with the dogs. It can be a great learning experience for all and a worthwhile challenge for you. Use the treats for rewarding structure and calm behavior (like sit) with the child rewarding the dog. With the 2 yr.old, put the child's hand in yours and help the child give the treat with the open, flat hand, so they don't accidentally nip the fingers.... :-)
3 Corgis "herding" a squealing 2 yr. old would concern me too, especially where all the interaction with the children occurs outdoors. You may find ways to keep the toddler closer to you, maybe by alternating one dog being on leash. If you could do that, you could hold the end of the leash and the child could "help" by holding on too, giving a treat, or whatever you feel is appropriate and safe. 2 yr.olds have a short attention span and don't follow directions well, so I would exercise the dogs by themselves first, to get some of their pent-up energy used up, before adding the children in the mix. Even 10 minutes will help.
Ron, it's fine to comment on your discussion. If you want to comment to the person then click on their profile picture and it will go to that person's page. Then scroll down to comments and leave one in the box. It takes awhile to get the hang of this...you seem to be getting this better than I did at 1st!
You can also ask on here about Faerieland Corgi rescue. I believe I have seen some advertisements for some fund raisers on MyCorgi. I believe or leave a message for Sam he knows more than I do about the rescues in some states.
