I was just wandering we got our first Welsh Corgi yesterday. He was outside and very high up (mountains) and we are in the flat land...He is acting like he hates being indoors..eating good, playing is minimal though, poo & pee seems norm as well-Could the transition have an affect on him from acting like a puppy and could it also be a contributor that we have him in the house where he was outside there..We bought lots of cool toys that he will not give a time of day...????-he goes to the vet tomorrow for a check up...I hope this is normal for the Corgi's..
How old is your corgi? I have a Pemmie and a pemmie-mix corgi, a year old and 7 1/2 months. Corgis are bred for herding and are very active dogs for their smaller size. Mine are both indoors, but still are very active. If you are keeping him indoors then he probably is upset with the transition, my new girl is also upset because in her foster home she had a fenced in backyard to run in and with me she is never outside without a lead on. But perhaps yours is just bored. Normal corgi play is called "zoomies" or "FRAPing" (frantic randomn acts of play) for self explanitory reasons. Out of nowhere my corgis will start running figure 8s around the house, growling and barking the whole while. They can keep it up for maybe 10 minutes at a time, them back to quietly entertaining themselves with a toy or rawhide. They like chasing each other or me, but you have to watch them because they are a nippy breed - the herding thing. They are very intellegent and enjoy toys - mine aren't really good at fetch, but again like to chase to toys when I throw them, and my male is good at jumping up to catch them - the female is still a little to young for jumping. They also enjoy tug, but use a fleece toy if your corgi is still a baby. They love squeaky toys, and the female loves toys that dispense food - a good way to build an interest in toy-playing is to get a buster cube or some other puzzle toy and have your dog work for its meals. Since a corgi is a working dog, they very often need a job to do in order to feel content. They can be great cuddle-bugs, but they ain't no couch potatoes! They succeed well in agiliy, obedience, and rally-o events. Right now I'm looking into getting my two into an intro to agility class. Obedience classes also engage their mind and energy and focus them into positive behaviors. Daily walks to get out their energy are essential; if you don't have a fenced in yard look into finding a dog park in your area to let him run free. My older male likes to go to the park and running around on the playground equipment on cold days when there are no other kids around. =) Let us know how the vet visit went, hope there was good news!
