We've had Lucy for about two weeks and all is going very well. She is doing fine with house breaking only using the paper in her play area early in the AM when she has gotten up before me and can't seem to wait. She has even started going to the door to be let out! Pretty good for only 10 weeks.
The problem that we have is that she is extremely persistent when she wants to do something. I know, Corgis are like that! Today I had her outside with me while I was trimming my roses. She kept trying to get some of the branches, even though they have thorns. I had her give each one up, told her NO and then tried to distract her with her soccer ball. She then began to rear back and bark at me. She does this in the house as well when she is corrected. Distraction doesn't work. I then resort to putting her in her play area until she is calms down. Even though I don't agree with everything Cesar says, I do read his books and it seems that she is trying to be dominant. I certainly want this to stop early. Suggestions?
