Aggression is a behavioral issue not a training issue. Talk with your vet and ask for a referral. Then you can ask the behaviorist for additional referrals.

I have used Cesar Millan techniques for years on multiple dogs with success. His methods works including the alpha roll. I think the only reason someone would tell you not to do it is because they do not know how to do it correctly?

I have bullies and when they roll, I don't even have to touch them. Teeth, what teeth, do it right the first time...and now, I tell them down, they go down and belly up for me. I am not talking about a "regular" down. I am talking an alpha roll. I can roll them without touching them. It's all in the relationship.

You can do it on your own with Cesar's techniques. Go to his website. I think it's CesarMillan.com. His first book was "Cesar's Way." Then there is also a DVD set that he sells...

It will cost less than the behaviorist...or trainer. Or course, You can always watch the Dog Whisperer on NatGeo or NetGeo Wild

Let us know how it goes!!!

I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and he was initially aggressive when we first got him as a puppy. He used to have an attitude but we used Cesar Milans methods and they worked great. He doesn't have a single aggressive bone in his body now. It took months to get him to respect us.

Even though corgis are small dogs they really need regular walks. They're herding dogs so they need to be exercised. It's funny when people ask "ohh is he a lap dog!?"

This post is several years later than my first, but Dooley retains his aggressive behavior, especially towards other dogs. He does not display any other kind of aggression. He is fantastic with adults and children, the single most important thing. We still visit Virginia each year and his aggression towards my family's farm dogs there has waned. I think he knows better. Around the neighborhood, however, we have to keep him on a short, tight leash or he becomes a complete terror. We would never introduce him to a dog park - that would be a nightmare.

He is 8 years old now and we have managed just fine. It's not a priority at this point to socialize him with other dogs. He has such human tendencies, things he has displayed since he was a puppy. He just prefers interaction with humans and not dogs. Fortunately, it's easy to keep him away from other dogs. Not so much from people.

He has started bad habits of incessant barking as of late, but it's only because we (my partner and I) rough-house a lot and it gets him worked up. He also tends to bark when we speak loudly to each other from one room to another. It can get to be a bit much, but yelling at him doesn't do any good, so we just let it be. He stops much quicker when we ignore him than when we try to scold him. We also don't want him to think barking is a bad thing, especially when we get unexpected knocks at the door or strange goings-on outside. He has a deep, "big dog" bark, so unless someone knows what kind of dog he is, people are not likely to mess around where they don't belong.

When Dooley finally goes, we will likely get another corgi. There is not another breed like them. They have their own, very distinct personalities, and can be challenging (to say the least) at times, but they are extraordinarily intelligent and LOVE to figure out things unfamiliar. They are inquisitive and playful, athletic and emotional. If you're up for a challenge with a HUGE payoff, I would highly recommend a corgi as a pet. We found that they are not good dogs for apartments, despite what some literature states, as they love lots of room to run and play and they can be extremely vocal.

Amen to all of that! My wife and I love our Corgi Chevy who just turned 4 today. We love the Corgi personality for all the reasons you listed. We will definitelt get another Corgi if something happens to Chevy!

Chevy tends to get along better with small dogs than big dogs,but that's not always the case. He was ready to go toe to to with a Great Dane in our vet's office one time! He was very friendly towards a larger dog the last time he was at the groomers though.
