For a Corgi I find this so strange. She is laid back most all the time but for short tiny bursts of energy when she wants to heard the cats. She kind of avoids running for stretches. She sleeps lots and doesn't eat all that much. She isn't ever really attacking the bowl or dying to get into it. She is the same about the potty. She could go a long time and is in no hurry to get out in the morning. I describe her as an old dog in a young dogs body. I love her this way but wondered if she sounded strange to anyone. Should I worry?
Hmmm..I don't know, could be she's just that way. My Boston was the same way (still is) and it's funny cause when I tell people I have a Boston they are like "Wow, you must have lots of energy cause they are hyper dogs" and I just laugh because all mine does is sleep. Even when she was a pup she was very low key. Sometimes I wish she were more playful but I'm pretty glad to have a calm well behaved dog. If you are really concerned take her to a vet to make sure she is okay.but honestly, it may just be her personality. edited to fix gender ;)
Thanks a lot. It is just kind of funny to see the corgi next door with mine. My puppy tricks the other dog into doing the entire run of the fence with out her because she doesn't want to do it. THe other dog barks at her and barks at her and she couldn't care less! I have met many corgi's and they are mostly strong energetic types. I don't want hyper, just don't want to worry about her. Does anyone else have experience with a puppy being oddly laid back?
my pug was that way; i'd never owned a pug before. it was his personality. little lover dog who liked to sleep with his raccoon in his mouth. actually he is more lively now. if you are concerned, i would check with your vet.
My corgi was that way at first, but when she started to get a little older she had more energy. She use to take naps alot when she was four months and younger, but know she is s littlle over six months and boy I have trouble keeping up with her. She always has to be doing something. If you are concerned I would take her to the vet just to be sure.
scout is the same way. when she is in the house all she does is lay around and sleep. i laugh at her because the only moving she does is from the couch to the recliner and then back again. the only time i see her eat is after she has had a good hour of running and playing with her friends. she is a horrible eater but that is the breed. seems they are able to self regulate themselves as far as food intake and energy expenditure. i worried all the time. but everyone says she is normal for the breed. i wouldn't worry.
One of our Chinese Shar-Peis is like this. He still sleeps alot and he doesnt act very much interested in anything.He is so calm and quiet. He seemed to never go through the chewing stage either. I would always tell my husband that we had a statue of a dog instead of a real dog. But now one of our other Chinese Shar-Peis is the complete opposite! She is very hyper and you always know that she is around. I often wondered if something was wrong with Tuck but after we got Oat he is the same way so maybe some dogs are just like that.
