    Dogs..... Corgi?

    Hey fellas, Im looking at getting a puppy, a dog that stays rather small and doesnt make a huge mess, Ive been looking at a Corgi, they are real cool when they are puppies, but just wondering if anyone has or has had one and has any tips. I have it between a Corgi and a Jack Russell terrier...

    Re: Dogs..... Corgi?

    Jack Russell Terriers are cute dogs with tons of personality, that being said they can be a real pain in the butt. Very energetic and can be difficult if you get one with a strong personality. They are not for first time dog owners. Corgies are more short dogs then small dogs, think a medium sized dog with really short legs. Corgies tend to shed more then Jack Russells.

    Re: Dogs..... Corgi?

    I've had a great experience with a Corgi in my family. Nice dog that travels well and is kennel trained. JR's can be a bit too spunky for my taste.

    Don't know your family situation, but with a kid in the house I'd lean toward the Corgi.

    Re: Dogs..... Corgi?

    My neighbors have had several Corgis thru the years that I have taken care of at times. They are like a half size Collie with very short legs. Nice and fairly calm dogs. They do have very long hair that can get matted easy, and with the short legs it is always dragging in the mud, etc. Their coat would take much more care than a Jack Russel but would be a calmer dog.

    Re: Dogs..... Corgi?

    I love Corgi's, but I won't own one due to the amount of shedding.

    Don't get a Jack Russell! They are extremely hyper, and sometimes are vicious. They are also not very smart, IMO.

    Re: Dogs..... Corgi?

    I'd recommend a Sheltie for a smart smaller dog that can keep up with you on walks/runs but doesn't spaz out like so many Jack Russels seem to do.

    However, again ... the shedding thing sucks. If they make a short hair version of the Sheltie that's what I'm aiming for in my next dog.

    Re: Dogs..... Corgi?

    Jack Russells are very hyper and intelligent enough to give you problems.

    Corgis are calm dogs, but be careful as some in the breed have back problems.


    Change is the only constant in the universe, which is why I empty my pockets every day.

    Re: Dogs..... Corgi?

    What dog doesn't shed?

    Anybody got any tips for convincing a wife to agree to get a dog? I have been trying for a while now. I really want a German Shorthair and am having no luck at all...

    My shorthair doesn't really shed at all. Shorthairs are AWESOME with kids and are great all around dogs. They are however very spirited and require a lot of room to run. If I didn't have an acerage I wouldn't be able to have mine.

    Re: Dogs..... Corgi?

    We have a King Charles Cavalier spaniel. It's a great dog...small and smart without a high energy level. It's been a great fit for the family.

    If you're looking for a smart dog...I've heard Border Collie's are real smart.

    They are very smart, but you need to babysit them all the time since their energy level is so high. You need a big yard for them to run too.
