Corgi reference in a movie!

We went to the movies and one of the trailers was for a new meryl streep an tommy lee Jones movie called "Hope Springs". At the end of the trailer they referenced a character who owned corgis and showed her with corgis. They were so cute I had to control myself so I didnt yell "OMG CORGIS!!!" I now want to see this movie simply because of the corgi scene! Lol

shedding

So with summer being here the heavy shedding has begun and I for one am not fond of corgi hair as a seasoning on my food or as a fashion accessory lol. I've heard of the furminator so i wanted to here some opinions on whether it works well or not.

future plans

We are still a long time away from getting our own place but have begun saving for one. We currently live with my mother in law who has two dogs that keep Bailie company so i know ot will be essential to get a buddy for her so she wont be lonely when we move out. I have always planned on getting another corgi to keep Bailie company ( and bc let's face it: corgis are like potato chips, you cant have just one ). However, i know at first that finances will probably ne strained and that getting a… Continue

my fuzzy bug zapper

One of Bailie's favorite things to do is to catching a crawling bug. She plays with it for a minute and then plop down and rolls over the bug quite a few times. Then she gets up and looks at almost like she's saying "ahhh you stopped moving". It always makes me laugh when she does this! Anybody else's corgi Chase bugs?

treadmill

We take Bailie on 20 minute walks for exercise an normally we walk the hiking trails near our home but with summer starting our weather here is scorching hot (103 degrees right now!), its just too hot to take her on outdoor walks. I rendered seeing videos of dogs using treaadmills and i thought that was the perfect solution. My questions are has anyone here taught their corgi to use the treadmill and if so was it difficult? Any pointers? Thanks so much!

Bailie's home

She's home and doing well. She came home acting goofy and sleepy which as you know there is nothing cuter than the droop ears of a sleepy corgi :). They'll be no jumping or rough housing which will be quite disappointing to my hyper active fur baby but it'll be ok, we'll take her on a play day when she's better to make up for it. Thanks for all the supportive comments!

the big day

We dropped our baby off at the vet a little over an hour agi for her spaying. The face she made when we left made us feel just awful. I'll be on pins and needles until 3:30 when we can call to see when we get to pick her up. Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well!

potty training.

Bailie is pretty much potty trained for the most part but last night she peed in the floor and today popped in the floor and later peed on the couch without giving any warning and she is normally very good about giving warning. I wanted to nip this in the bud bc I don't want her to start going inside again. Any idea what the deal is?

holding objects

We have been trying to teach Bailie to hold objects in her mouth but I'm having some trouble. She'll take the object but drop it right away. Any suggestions on getting her to hold it til we tell her to drop it?

teething

Bailie is now just a little over four months old now and has starting showing signs of what I believe is cutting her adult teeth, so I have some questions. What are the signs of seething, how old was your corgi when they cut their adult teeth, and what are some things you did to relieve the pain? Thanks very much!

more training

Bailie is doing great on her training but at the moment she can only do lay down roll over and play dead if we lure her to the floor with a treat. I would like her to do them with a hand signal without having to bend to the floor. Any suggestions?

tricks again....

I have been working with Bailie on 'take it' but I'm having a lot of difficulty. I have tried using multiple toys but I can't seem to get her interested enough and the few times she would take it she drops it as soon as i open my mouth to praise her. Any suggestions?

tricks

Bailie can now sit, speak, kiss, down, leave it, stand, shake, high five, Eskimo kiss, heel, roll over and play dead. I would like to teach her more. Any suggestions?

obediance training

We start bailie in a training class in a week and a half. She is a generally good dog but she has trouble listening and obeying sometimes and though we have been working with her and really putting in effort, i know we need help. I was just wondering if anyone had any success stories as far as behavioral turn around after obedience training. Thanks!

tummy issues

Does anyone does corgi seem to have a sensitive stomach? Bailie gets gas easily....

slight aggression problem.

I don't know if its a corgi thing or what but Bailie is't mean but she's not exactly the sweetest thing. She gives love nip but has been getting better about being gentle and giving kisses. The main problems are that she sometimes throws a fit about being held and biting too hard when playing. I'm just asking to see if anyone's got any advice that we can add on to what we're already doing to stop it. Thanks so much!

coming when called

Bailie can already do a few tricks and has already been taught come on a small scale but lately we've been having trouble with it. Any suggestions?

leash training

This is actually a two part question. First off how long did it take your corgi to get used to a collar/harness? And second how did you start leash training. Our corgi is starting to run almost too fast to catch so I know we'll have to sta4t using a leash now.
