Ziggy took sibling rivalry to the next level the other day. We got an awesome rug for Christmas. It has my favorite picture of Baxter and Ziggy on it-- with Ziggy making the most indignant face ever.…Continue

Ziggy the Rat Dog

Posted on November 2, 2013 at 11:30pm 3 Comments

Today was Responsible Dog Ownership Day. Our kennel club put on a pretty good one with lots of demos of different activities you can do with your dog. I took Ziggy with me, as Baxter accompanied me on a morning news spot to publicize the event: http://www.clipsyndicate.com/video/playlist/19149/4569889

One of the demos was barnhunting. I have heard of this event, which is now recognized by AKC for titles,…

AKC Agility Trial Manhattan, IL October 17th and 18th

Posted on November 13, 2012 at 10:00am 2 Comments

I have a few new updates on trials to write about. Things have been very busy lately-- just got married, just moved, general life still happening-- leaving no time for updates... until now!

 

In October, just three days before getting married, Baxter AND Ziggy (my little boy is all grown up!) entered an agility trial in the suburbs of Chicago. I entered both of them into everything. I may have even gotten a few videos the first day, one of which being Ziggy's very first trial…

AKC Agility Trial Arcadia, FL August 24-26th

Posted on September 10, 2012 at 11:05am 0 Comments

It's been a little while since this trial, but I wanted to make sure I posted what I remembered. I don 't have the videos yet, but hopefully soon.

 

The first thing I'll always remember about this trial is I totally forgot to change our registration. This cost us two run that I paid for. We were still signed up as Novice Standard and Open Jumpers, even though we should have been Excellent A in both. =( Oh well, it made Friday a very quick day, which was needed because we had…

AKC Agility Trial Manhattan, IL August 18th

Posted on August 28, 2012 at 1:00pm 1 Comment

August 18th I was up in Chicago for vacation and I thought what better way to start that vacation than with a little day of agility. I took my family out to Manhattan, IL so they could see Baxter run for the first time. We ran four times and it was a blast!

 

FAST Novice-- We ran our first FAST course ever. I was a little nervous about it as I wasn't sure what the best path would be. We were also walking the Excellent…

Thanks so much for the pointers! I'll take all I can get. I never noticed how much I bend over. You're right, I do think it's because I think he can't see my hands. I will make it a point to stand up straight!

I think he was more stressed about the day than he let on. He acted like a goofball, but he was throwing up and had diarrhea the next day. He also didn't sleep the whole trial, even when I covered his crate up. This was sort of a crazy event for his first trial. I signed up because a lot of the people in my agility class said they were going, but then they flaked out...

I need to look into UKC. Right now he's registered with CPE and TDAA, which from what I've heard are smaller, more relaxed events.

Hi!  I'm just pondering your question.  It's so tough to understand what's going on without seeing the dogs.  MOST dog-to-dog "aggression" is just noise and posturing, or sometimes playing that looks like fighting to us.  Mine only got into a real squabble once.  For the life of me I can't remember what happened but I was able to break them up verbally and there was no damage.  Mostly, Maddie is a submissive dog and Jack is a dominant but tolerant one.   So Maddie will get on Jack's nerves, Jack grumbles and walks away, and every once in a while he yells at her loudly and she backs down.  They DO play-fight very loudly sometimes.  My experience is that if you can see all the teeth (back and front) and they mutually stop on their own, it's playing no matter how bad it sounds.   And most especially, if they "shake it off" with the wet-dog type shake when they are done, it means that all is well (from their point of view).   

Do you have to break the dogs up, or do they stop on their own?  If they stop on their own and there are no injuries, I'd let it go for a bit and see what happens.  My guess is that Ziggy is over-running his "puppy license" and Baxter is getting annoyed.  Basically, until dogs hit adolescence (as you probably know) most adults give them plenty of leeway to be rude little brats and only correct the worse transgressions.  Once the pups hit adolescence or early adulthood, the other adult dogs expect them to start shaping up and minding their manners.  If Baxter is a laid-back guy, he might have let Ziggy get away with it longer.  Now Ziggy may be pushing his luck and Baxter is not ok with that any more.   A few loud arguments between them will probably sort themselves out faster than if you were to intervene.

If, however, neither backs down, or they draw blood, or one yips or squeals and tries to leave and the other continues to pursue, then it is time to intervene.  If any of those things happen, then I'd implement Nothing In Life is Free with both dogs and give more structure to their free time in the house.  I'd also work one-on-one with each of them for short times at least a few days a week;  I know you do agility so you probably already do that.  

Like I said, it can be hard to tell.  When mine play they sound like they are killing each other.   Hope that helps.

You are right, this is a great place with much knowledge and experience from all these Corgi lovers.We all bring questions, thoughts and ideas that others can either learn from or help us through a tough time. I guess I'm a bit of a rebel when someone tells me "it's only this way" and  it isn't. I felt many of the posts were judging us.

Thank-you for the politely put response you just posted on one of the discussions. I am one whe has taken great offense to some of the comments.

Both are cute.  What is Zigs age?
At 10:07pm on July 21, 2011, Jody Freeland said…
Yes, it is!! Fender is an amazing dog!! He is Gibson and Ricky's son. He was the oldest of a litter of 5. I wanted to keep a female, but they sold too quickly. I spayed Gibson after her one and only litter. I'm still in touch with all the people that bought puppies and one of his sisters comes over for play dates regularly.

Hi twin and thanks!! Chewie still has the black around her muzzle along with the "half-white" area above her nose. Just the super minute stripe which was on top of her head is slowly disappearing.

 

I hope the two of you are doing well! Please post pics when you can so I can see Chewie growing up, haha!
