"Second Anna's suggestion! With a class, you get a) the benefit of an expert (most of the time); b) socialization with other dogs; and c) a chance to meet other dog fanciers. It's win/win/win."

"If she were my pup, I'd be looking for a good "Basic" obedience training class that uses positive methods.  It's true that you can train on your own, but a class provides good structure, good socialization and having to…"

"I really like Zak George and kikopup too on utube.  I train walking using very encouraging baby talk and random treats (tiny ones). Soon they can't wait to get their collars on and go for a walk!"

"There are tons of videos on youtube on loose leash walking. Try looking for Kikopup or Zac George videos.  They will give you lots of ideas on how to train your dog to walk more politely.   "

My 6 month old Pippa doesnt seem to like to go for walks.I get the harness on and we head out the door but on the rare occasion we leave the front yard she pulls so bad it is not enjoyable. Does anyone use a yraining collar? I have not gotten on yet because I'm afraid it will hurt our dog.

New to Corgis

Hi All!!! We just got our 1st Corgi Pippa at the beginning of December. Do Corgis normally not go outside by themselves? Pippa is really getting the hang of potty outside but wont go unless I'm with her. Anyone have any tips to get her outside and me at the door?
