Keeva was raised with kids from birth and is excellent with them. They make her all wiggly and sweet, and she enjoys their attention.

If I had children of my own, I would not be concerned about her interacting with them while supervised, and she's not a soft tempered dog - she's pure corgi sass, LOL. But she's very sound and was heavily socialized with children from a young age.

Of course, she did once stick her foot right some poor kid's eye socket in her enthusiasm.

I don't think a well-bred corgi should be any more difficult or dangerous with children than any other breed.

And I had brushed about that same amount out of him a couple days later too. It's a weekly job, or else you're looking at a couple hours work later.
OMG I cant believe you actually did that inside LOL.

I actually wouldnt recommend any of the herding/working breeds for folks with kids. the corgis i have known (& i have known both well & badly bred ones ... mostly pems tho, I have only met 2 cardigans & they were both lovely). there is just too much margain for error esp if this is your first herding/working breed.

i would recommend an adult resscue.

But in general, they don't have to live with him, and with his very early resource guarding and food aggression, no to mention HIGH crazy energy, I would ONLY recommend them to someone who already has experience with energetic and sometimes moody/dictating herding breeds. They CAN be great with kids, and can also be crazy controlling, they're very much a typical herder.

As well, the very first Corgi I ever got to meet and know in person was an elderly Cardigan. He belonged to the neighbor of one of my brother's friends. The neighbor was going to have the old dog, Andy, PTS when they decided to move, my brother's friend and his siblings use to walk that dog and didn't want him to die just because the family was moving, the neighbor gave them the dog instead. That interaction, actually kind of reminds me of how Jinj is with kids, except a little more soulful and less hyper.

Ultimately it REALLY depends, on a lot of factors, and I would highly advice for the best determination about getting one of these breeds, GO TO SHOWS!!! See them and talk to their owners/handlers/breeders/families in person! You wont find a better "introduction" to the breed elsewhere, except maybe being invited to a breeders house for a play-date.

Lol, even on the carpet it gets all the hair up? We have a shepherd mix that sheds all summer, like ... Clumps of hair all the time ... So I (bad I know) shave he in summer lol, but her coat in summer is always so crappy so she actually looks better shaved.

For the love of god if you get a corgi be extra careful about going to a good breeder. I've met so many poorly bred corgis over the years that are just train wrecks behaviorally that it's just about ruined the breed for me forever and ever.

True story bro. I feel like they're one of those breeds that you CAN'T mess around with when it comes to breeding. Like labs, yeah you may come across an aggressive BYB, but it's not the norm. Most all BYB corgis I've ever met I would never want to live with.

And while I love Frodo and his metric @ssload of issues, I would never seek out another corgi. Ever.

Oh yeah! Usually I take a brush and try to get those "clumps" up as much as I can and toss those (outside in the spring/summer/fall, trash bin in the winter), then by brushing him over a rug most the hair sticks to the rug (or my cloths, lol) and I just run over it with the Dyson! Trust me, that was the BEST money I ever spent on a vacuum, no bags! and the filter's are washable (takes FOREVER to dry though).

Not to mention the health! You can always end up with some problems no matter where you go, but it's worth it to go that extra mile to find someone who really gives a care for both health and temperament. I could endlessly go on, and on about the demonic behavior of Jinj, but, I'll just leave you with this .


Unfortunately, this has gotten to be a royal problem *sigh* Determination, he haz.

Yes I am the same with JRTs, I love JRTs , I know that I will never get another one like bear who is by JRT standards (well by dog standards too lol) a near perfect dog, he was a great puppy & he is a great dog, he was always easy to train & never went thru "puppy stupidity"

In a nutshell IMO (now this is just MHO based on general dog/herding/working dog experience) I don't think I corgi is the right choice for you based on the fact that a portly bred corgi is a nightmare, but a well bred one is a handful also in a different way.

Corgi's are cabrones (bad asses) like many working dogs & I recall the hard time you had with Baloo, a working dog like. Corgi can be a lot like that ESP when young.

Totally unrelated: is that black & tan dog you have a bauceron (spelling???) I have always wanted one, (if that is what he is) how are they as a breed?
