Dad Goldie and I were playing..like usual.Our game you ask?
Its Called HELP. Dad would pretend to attack me and goldie would protect me =] Goldie never bites but this time dad grabbed me and flipped me on the couch. Goldie was furious so she BIT HIM!!! It was a surprise cause SHE NEVA DOES THAT! poor Daddy=[ But hey she knew dad is dad and couldn't resist a bite. so what would happen if a stranger did that to me?
i <3 My Lil Protector.
Also i use a beat. It sounds like " Book-Achi" in a rapping sound. She comes sprinting down the hallway and starts licking my face + Lips! EWWW I cant breath sometimes!!!

hate me for saying this, but protection is never PLAY, especially in a dog like a corgi predisposed to be extemeley loyal and somewhat protective naturally... We address unacceptable aggression in our gang and monitor appropriate "protective" reactions very carefully. And we start with them young so they know the difference,
to answer your question about a stranger.. what if with all this play ( actually teaching them to be agressive) you take the dog to the dog run and maybe a child runs to you and does what children do???
I suggest you STOP that kind of play and discourage any agressive behavior towards you and dad:)))) The dog will definitely bite a stranger if it bites its owner. And this behavior is confusing to the dog. The biting is likely to become unpredictable and a liability to you and your guests.
Corgis are super smart, encourage the behavior you want and ignore or discourage that which you don't want .They can be taught to react to certain words alerting them to any real danger and can be very effective protector presense without biting.But don't use the protective tendency as play and bait the dog. It will escalate out of control and someone can get hurt.
Dont hate me, I have seen too many dogs put down as a result of confusing play...

We do the "Ima get him!" thing and run and Haley comes springing into action growling and acting all like a huge Doberman...its funny as all. DH will smack my thigh and she goes crazy but shes gotten better about it in the last few months, not biting as hard. I think she finally figured out we were PLAYING! lol

It took me by surprise too, since I really have never needed to use the word help..and all I needed help with was carrying some chairs.

I hope your Dad is ok! Corgis are good protectors, they love their family. I needed help once with carrying some chairs and called out HELP...in a really calm voice and Lance came running :O Just be careful sometimes its a good thing when they protect you but in other situations you really dont want them getting over protective either. Corgis also can get jealous which you dont want either.
