How do you control herding and biting at 5 months?!

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thank you.

Can you give more detail? Is he herding you, other dogs, the kids, the cat...?

My husband and I have begun puppy kindergarten which covers basic obedience including walking on a leash. The class has been helping us out a lot. Especially with the herding behavior. Corgis are very smart, I am sure that your corgi will do very well. Have patience :)

To add to Jennifer also high pitched very dramatic yelp if the teeth come out. You must be very consistent! Your puppy has to see that herding causes you to stop. This is such an instinctive thing for them since they are herding dogs that it takes patience. If you aren't going to have him do what he was bred to do I suggest trying to replace that desire with something such as teaching fetch and obedience classes are good options. My Sparty had a strong desire to herd and we found soccer balls in the yard to throw for him a great alternative. He loved pushing it all over after just one toss.

Squirt bottle.

A) Stop walking.

B) Stern and firm "NO!" (While staring directly in to their eyes)....

Repeat as needed.  I really think the key though is to stop moving.  I've got a corgi and an aussie that we raised as puppies, and it's worked for me.
