A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

I also have my 5 1/2 year old Corgi. I had a male Corgi that grew up with my girl but I had to re home him 2 years ago because I was pregnant with my son and he started having alot of seizures. And he did not like kids even though he grew up with my daughter. I loved that dog but I felt he would be happier in a home with no children, and he is he is with a older couple and he dose not have as many seizures because he dose not have as much stress in his life. Odles loved Charlie but was never really liked other dogs but was never mean with other dogs we still went to dog parks. As long as the dogs left her alone she was fine.

So here is my problem. I got Dexter 5 weeks ago. Odles stayed away from Dex the best she could but he is a puppy after all. She has bit him a few times. Made his ear bleed once. She has lashed out on him a lot. Now though she is peeing on my floor, she will not listen to my commands. She is barking at other dogs all the time, when dogs walk by she trys to get at them. I her for walks. I took her to the dog park and she was fine, she was a little nippy and barky but that was normal for her. She wont come back when I call her, she pees on my floor. 

I dont know what to do about her. she is not her self. I figured it would take her a while to get use to Dex but it is getting worse not better. I dont know what to do about her. Dose anyone know what to do about her?

ok hun, I believe I have the dogs in order now...    Odles, is the 5 1/2 yr old Corgi.  who has been the pet in house until Dexter...  correct?     Odles, I believe, now sees Dexter is an interloper in his territory. 

Your son (another human) was acceptable, but a d o g.. no way.   He is marking both for your benefit and Dexter's.    My suggestion is to make him go for walks with you and Dexter + your son. 

Although you do not mention, I can imagine how busy your day must be.  Just a little fun with a growing puppy and son to grow together is what you want..  FULLY understand, but Odles doesn't see it that way.  The Canine Good Citizen certification is your foundation to know that you can accomplish a change in his behavior.    You also know it will take your leadership to get him there..

I know and this community knows you can do this...   Odles needs to feel needed,  show approval every time he tries to please you.   Include Dexter in reaffirming the training Odles already has in him.  (actually he has alot to teach Dexter just as he is)   Consider yourself with a 3rd offspring.. The 1st born doesn't like sharing your attention...

Please do keep in touch...  Promise we are all cheering you on.

 Your corgi is probably use to having all the attention and is very jealous.  You know when we had our other dog Fletch we made up our minds that we would never bring another dog into the house.  He was so use to having all of our attention.  One Christmas my niece gave me laughing Elmo.  (Something I really wanted.)  When I would put it on the floor and turn it on Fletch went bonkers.  It was definitely jealousy.  He was totally jealous.  I had to stop playing with Elmo.  Don't know what to tell you unless you should give yourCorgi more attention?

I did take Odles to the vet when she started peeing in the house. Odles dose live with me. (Charlie is not) Dexter is 16 weeks old. Odles is CGC certified so I was confused about all this. I guess I will just try to manage them.

You might want to take Oodles to the Vet for a check up.  Peeing on the floor could be strictly behavioral (marking territory for instance), or it could be caused by a Urinary Tract Infection or other physical problem.

Assuming the Vet finds nothing, you need to make sure that Oodles is getting attention first, then Dex.  Keep her top dog in the pack.   Also, you might want to consider Rescue Remedy or similar, as it could help with stress issues.

It may just be that Oodles would be happier as an only dog, but I think I'd check her health and try behavior modification before jumping to that conclusion.

Good luck!

  1st off I'd like to clarify a few things:   The Corgi is not in this picture, if I read correctly;  who  is  Odles. Possibility I missed that within another blog.      Dexter is close to 3 months old, correct.  NO, he looks older..      What breed, age and gender is Odles.
