It has only been a few months since I brought this little fuzzy, hot dog-shaped bundle of joy (and trouble) home and it feels like he's been a part of the family forever already!
While he is well behaved most of the time, he has picked up a few vices (I blame my boyfriend's pit-shepherd mix), and one of them is. . . Dun dun dun! CHEWING. He has already gone through two or three pairs of shoes, a couch cushion, a comforter, a few spots in the rug, and the baseboards in the living room. I am at a loss of what to do! I have tried all of the recommended training methods: keeping an eye on him and replacing destructive chewing behaviors with squeaky toys, spraying problem areas with bitter apple spray, etc. Nothing works! The little bugger is too smart for his own good and for being pretty clumsy most of the time, he is sneaky like a ninja when he gets the urge to chew! Any other corgi owners have this problem? If so, what did you do to correct it? I am just about at the end of my rope! For now, he either gets crated or is shut in my room when no one is home. :(
I recently switched his food because I could not find a store within a reasonable driving distance that carries the brand I had him on, Orijen. He has been eating Innova EVO Red Meat Little Bites for the past two weeks or so, and I'm not sure I'm loving the results. His eyes have been runnier than usual and I just feel like Orijen has a more balanced formula, and is less fattening. Luckily, I found a small mom & pop pet store not too far from here, and they carry Orijen, yay! I'm excited to try Orijen Regional Red, but I don't think that has hit the states yet.
Astro got a new bed yesterday and a new Kong (which I filled with peanut butter & he LOVED that, except now I can't find it anywhere) and a new plushie octopus toy because his favorite snake plushie was ripped apart by his dear friend Boq (a great dane-shepherd mix, I think).
Anyway, that's all the news here. Hope everyone is having a great, corgi-filled day!
