I'm sure I can't be the only corgi owner out there that needs to remind their pup NOT to nip at their heels. Normally one stern reminder and Winnie will break her focus but it never stops amazing me just how strong her herding instinct really is. I guess it shouldn't be a surprise really. What do you think? We've been trying to breed that intuition into our dogs for hundreds of years! Taking a few pups off the farm and into the house won't make that drive go away. And as if my ankles weren't enough evidence, check out these pictures of Win at the dog park. She could care less about that tennis ball... she's trailing the other dogs!
I'd really like to learn more about the heritage of herding dogs so I can learn to better communicate/understand the state of mind in our furry buddies... if anyone can share books, blogs, instructors, experience, or whatever for me to look into that would be great. Go Corgi's!
