I was wondering if other Corgie owners have problems with their dog having anxiety and behavior problems in their dogs..

Hi ya Roxie!!!!

Anxiety problems, no. Other behavioral things.... like barking.... yes!!!

A good friend had issues with her dog and feaar agression. She consulted a highly recommended behaviorist and worked thru the problem.

I suspect within another year, I may actually consult with a behaviorts. If it is very serious in your mind, that might be a good way to go.

You could ask your Vet for a referral to a good behaviorist.

We have 4 Cardigan Welsh Corgis in our family and we've learned that Corgis are highly alert and instantly respond to any "comings" or "goings." They are known to be terrific watchdogs. Any sound from outside that indicates somebody might be approaching a door or window will set them off barking and running around until the "threat" is gone. It's just how they are. You don't need a doorbell when you have Corgis.

Corgis are also your built-in Homeland Security guards. They are suspicious of strangers and will eye them carefully until they get to know them. Of course, once they get to know somebody they are friends for life.

Throw it, now!

Betty's only anxious about sudden, sharp noises. That can be fireworks or thunder.. or me slapping a mosquito on my leg. Otherwise, she's not at all nervous or anxious.

Mogwai is part Corgi -- does that count? She has major thunderstorm anxiety issues, but that's really the only time. I don't know what to do about it.

Has anyone else had Corgis with storm issues?

As people mentioned above, she is a GREAT watch dog. She can hear things that I never hear. She also has this amazing ability to see through the blinds while they are completely closed. She found a place on the back of the sofa where she can see through at an angle somehow, and she gets such a kick out of barking at everyone that passes by. Very strange!

Molly is a high anxiety Corgi/Heeler mix and honestly it is not uncommon at all for Corgi breeds to be high anxiety. Her alertness is definitely high as well but she is definitely a high anxiety dog. I wouldn't worry too much about it, just keep working with your dog to encourage listening to what you're saying and if the behavioral issues become too drastic then maybe try a trainer? smile
