My dearest friend (who introduced me to corgis) will be going out of town for a week and I have offered to watch her corgi, Emily, for her. My dogs normally get along very well with her. They always hang out at the barn, go on car rides, etc. But I haven't had her at my house unattended without her human mom since I've gotten Tigger. Molly and Tigger can be real bullies (esp. Molly cuz she is the brains and Tig is the muscle). There was only one incident that was bad, and it was that they were all fighting to be in the same kennel at the horse show...I think there ended up being a bigger fight between me and my friend! :-0.I really want to keep Emily, I want to do this favor for my friend, Emily is a sweetheart and she LOVES Tig!
I know that if there are dog cookies or toys, there will be no fights. I also seperate my dogs during meal time and I watch over them while they are eating. I am afraid that while I am at work that there might be a three way fight. My friend and I are going to do a trial period for a couple of hours to see how it goes down.
Tig and Emily are both used to being kenneled. Should I kennel both or just one of them when I leave for work? Any other tips from you wise corgi peeps? Like I said, I want to keep her, I think everything would be fine but if DAWG forbid anything would happen to Emily, it would probably be the end of our friendship and possibly my life! For REAL!
