I am really close to taking baloo's manhood away if it will stop him from being such a brat!! He chews up everything that he can reach even though he has all the rawhides and dog toys he needs, he jumps a barks like mad when a visitor comes and i'm afraid he's going to knock someone over like a kid or an elderly person. I don't know what to do.

Listen i would never actually nuter baloo i paid good money for a show boy and i was just joking around. I'm just not used to high energetic male dogs and i understand i need to take more responsibility and do more to keep him happy and obedient. I made this out to be worse than it really is, guess i'm stressed and sometimes i need to vent it out. Sorry.

If he's telling you when to end walks it might be you have some issues with who's in charge.

I have an intact male that goes everywhere with me and I can count on him minding his manners. I did have a female that was constantly barking and I gave her a job so now instead of barking at the goats.,..we play ball and she has turned into this wonderful dog! I have a fetch it and we play it several times a day even if it's only a few minutes at a time. She lives for this game ...maybe you can try that for extra exercise???? Good luck!

Well baloo is a little over a year now, he's been to many obedience classes, 4-H, and show handleing classes. I guess i can walk him more but when i try to take him on long walks like he's used to he stops and jumps at me and want to turn back, but i'll try again. As for the door bell thing....i don't have a doorbell lol but i get what you mean.

How old is Baloo? Sounds like Sarah & Sam are giving you good advise!

For the door problem, try the door bell game.
The reason the dog gets excited when the doorbell rings is because it IS exciting. People are getting up and going to the door, a new person is AT the door, and people are talking and petting him.
The door bell game is where you ring the door bell and put him in a spot (wherever you want. I have a rug near my door I have them sit) and give him a treat for going to the right spot. Do it over and over. Try to make going to the spot a super fun thing to do. Then, instead of mauling your guests, he'll go to his spot, and you won't have to wrestle the door open.
I still haven't managed to get people to stop INVITING my dogs to maul them after the door is open, besides yelling at them or telling them my dogs have a terrible, contagious, rash, so I can't help you there. :P

Hi Melanie, I'm sorry to hear that you're having a hard time. Testicles have nothing to do with bad behavior :) Most problems can be solved by increase his daily on leash outdoor walking time, 45-60 mins daily should do it. Corgis are herding dogs - driven by sight and sound, the more negative you react to it, he will amplify it because it is indeed a big deal. Acknowledge his finding, and re-direct his energy to something else. For example, give the command "lay down" or "sit", as soon as he perform, reward him with a treat, remember you don't need to tackle a problem directly, you can always re-direct and have him do something YOU want instead. If you do find yourself overwhelm, it's okay to seek a professional, a group obedient class or even private sessions are affordable, it is cheaper than any unknown, injury or lawsuit. Good luck!

Have you tried obedience classes? NILF (Nothing In Life is Free)?
