I am wondering if your corgi's are as sassy as Grace? Not really to me but to my hubby, I have done most of the training and rearing if you must. When my husband try to get her to come or even sit it can be a challange for him. She becomes very vocal and starts almost yelling at him.  Do you have any good ideas for us to try to get her to listen to him more and not be so sassy? I know he is a  mushy marshmellow with her does she know he is soft?

lol! oh my gosh I'm having this same problem with my fiance. He was gone for the majority time that we have had out new baby [Brody] thus, I have done all the training. Now that my fiance is back home Brody just won't listen to him.. or stick to his usual schedule for that matter. I'm quite concerned and in the same predicament.. Please let me know if you find a solution!

I often wonder if they know what they are doing and if they are laughing under their breaths.

Nimh is my talker......and he can be quite insistent sometimes!  But he does respond (appropriately...LOL) to my commands.  Teri is the best behaved.  Annie is my stubborn girl....sometimes she listens, sometimes she doesn't....I swear if her front paws could reach her ears she'd cover her ears with her paws and sing "Lalalaalaaalaaaaa...I can't hear youuuuuuu" when I'm calling to her!  She doesn't argue verbally with me but she does do it by body language!

@Suzi G:I could've written your post.My Hubby is also the boy toy at our house :).Especially for his princess,Keri.

She "eyeballs" him just like any self-respecting herding dogs does,then gets him down on the floor to play.when he's trying to get back up,she runs at him and tried to drag him back down on the floor.That is really hard to do because even for a corgi,she has really short legs.Check out some of her pics!!She doesn't bark alot but does a great corgi talk.Merlin is alot less demanding.He just flops down in front of anybody he wants to have pet him.

Just a tip:  You may want to re-post this under "Discussions--- Corgi Behavior".  It will stay on the front page longer and many people probably have insight on this.  :)


Corgis were bred to bark at a recalcitrant cow until she would back down and go where the Corgi wanted her to go, so yes, this can be common Corgi behavior.


Hw old is Grace?  If she's an adolescent, firm consistency should resolve it shortly.  If she's older, it will take more time.

Jack used to talk back to me a lot.  I would just stand with my arms across my chest, feet shoulder-width apart, and a stern look on my face.  Sometimes he'd then get frustrated and frap around the house.  Eventually he'd come and sit at my feet looking regretful, and then I'd give him a quiet "good boy" and ask him again, and he'd generally listen. 

They can be stubborn!  And yes, they walk all over my husband too.
