OMG the tail grabbing. Payton and Georgie grab each others tails ALL THE TIME. They don't try to mess with Auggie's tail (which is good because he HATES that) but the puppies will run around dragging the other dog behind from their tail... *facepalm* I think it's rude so I'm always telling them to stop hahaha. I'm pretty sure Georgie started it and Payton learned it from her... that's my story and I'm sticking to it. =P

I pretty much agree entirely with Aleron. Herding breeds come in a wide variety of flavors and each has different levels of inhibition.

Is my corgi likely to follow through with the kill part of prey drive when he works cattle? I seriously hope he knows not to try.

Is he likely to kill a mouse? Yes. Or a rabbit or a squirrel. Part of it is size, part of it is species discrimination. In fact, corgis have quite a history of being used as ratters. Many herding breeds were used for all around farm work - herding, guarding and vermin control, which included killing.

I have yet to see a corgi who stalks and stares, BTW.

As for breeds that don't do well together:
Boxers and pretty much everything else (based on my experience with doggy day care)
Corgis and Belgian anything - all flavors of shepherd as well as Bouvier.

Another thing that maybe people don't think about with livestock and herding is that there is pressure from both sides - the dog to the livestock and the livestock to the dog. It's quite a bit different than chasing down a fleeing small animal.

This is a good point too. A lot of the farm dog herding breeds were really multi-purpose farm dogs. Belgians herded, guarded and even were used for carting to take good into town. Regardless of breed, most farmers would have been very happy with a farm dog who killed vermin and ran off animals potentially dangerous to the farm animals. Herding breeds are rather complicated dogs

I shouldn't say Whim doesn't get along with Boxers...she likes the two girls my boss has and she was pretty raised with them at work. She has not liked most of the others she has met though. Jagger dislikes all of them equally LOL

Corgis can be tricky to find suitable friends for LOL Ziggy gets along with the Belgians ok but him and Jagger get into it sometimes (always started by the short dog...). He is getting more tolerant of Savvy and actually plays with him sometimes now. He and Jora my GSD were the very best friends out of all of the dogs though.

My Chi/terrier thing gets along smashingly with my mom's Dachshunds.

I've got so many pictures where Mia's got another dog's tail in her mouth.

Her favorite thing is to wait till another dog is pooping then tackle them once they stop pooping.

She's also a fan of the drive by

My herding dogs compliment my sighthound and my working dog. My terriers can start a bit of trouble here and there, but fit in really great too lol!
