I'd forgotten what it was like to have a baby with strong herding instincts! Beezie is a little over 7 months old and she is major into herding my mother's elderly dog. Thank heavens said old doggy is laid back and usually puts up with it!

Our first Corgi (Angharad - aka Annie) herded us to the bone box or to the door to go out but Beezie herds for the sheer joy of it. She sidles close to the "direct", swings her little bunny butt around and pushes from that way - whatever it takes to make Shadow go where she wants her to go!

Our second Corgi (Andrew - aka Drewie-dog) was so laid back he didn't care who went where when.

Both Beezie (real name Bronwyn) and Annie were/are female tris. Drewie was a sable male. Wonder if that has anything to do with it? Probably not - just a matter of breeding I suppose.

Hard to tell for sure so early then. It'll be interesting to see if she continues this behavior or not. She sure likes to be in charge. She also grabs her leash about 8 inches from where it is attached to her and leads me around when we go for a walk or run. Then she leads me back into the house when she's ready. LOL. Definitely a crazy puppy!

I've seen males laid back and ones that like to be in it all just like the females. I don't think this is necessarily herding but puppy play and the older dog wants to avoid her so she naturally goes the opposite way the pup is coming at her.

Oh yes, from what I can see of Corgis the males are rather laid back, but the females like to take over and will run the household. They really need to have a job to do.
