Corgis are usually very easy to train. This is a result of traits like intelligence and eagerness to please.
However, there are a few other personality characteristics that may make life a little tricky for you including their strong will and their occasional stubbornness.
Fortunately, with smart training strategies, you should be able to housebreak your corgi and get them under your control in no time. Here are a few tips that should come in handy not only with training but also in understanding how to discipline a corgi puppy.
Use Affection And Praise As One Of Your Rewards
Corgis are suckers for affection so if you want them to learn quickly you should include a few back rubs and some verbal praise in your reward arsenal.
Aggressive behavior starts around 6 to 14 weeks. It is best to start training and socialization around this age before things get out of hand.
Assert Yourself As The Alpha
If you are not firm with your corgi, they will take over your house and become very difficult to handle. So do not hesitate to be assertive when there is a need for it.
Be Consistent Even When They Learn
Training your corgi never ends. They will, of course, learn pretty quickly. However, you have to consistently implement whatever they learn and continue to reward them in whatever way to keep them motivated to behave.
Avoid Harsh Punishment
Punishing your corgi is never a good idea. They are sensitive and this could traumatize them. It could also trigger aggressive retaliation. Instead, withhold items used in rewards like treats or praise when they misbehave.
