    We have a Corgi Dachhund mix we inherited from a family member, he is a great little guy with the exception of his barking issues, and going completely “ballistic” if he sees another dog. He has scars on his head and one leg, we were told he was hit by a car, however we think he may have been in a dog fight. He is social with humans, but not with other animals. Is there anyway we can help him to tolerate other dogs/animals (doesn’t do well with cats either)! Ricky is 2 yrs old, we were told the family member had rescued him only 2 months before he had a stroke and is now in a nursing home. We have had Ricky for 7 months and he has become a loving member of our family! I hope you can give us some ideas on how we can help him overcome this behavior. Thank you

    I have a 1.5 year old dorgi named Burten. It’s funny cause we rescued him after he was left at the humane society for over 4 months. He fits all those characteristics listed except he is not a barker. He barely makes any noise. The only he really barks at are cats. And when he has nightmares he’ll wake up barking sometimes.

    We have 5 y/o. He is a doll-baby but getting too heavy now. Always been 27-30 lbs but now up to 33-34. Been on “diet” food since 1 y/o cuz he has the really skinny doxie front legs. BTW…he has always shed like crazy…any suggestipns for that??!

      I know this has been there a while and you may have already gotten an answer, but here goes anyway. My dorgi also had the same issue with his weight. Found out he had a thyroid condition. Meds twice a day. So far has lost 3 lbs in 2 months. Vet said that it was quite a common problem, so can’t hurt to get it checked.

    I have a dorgi he is about 8 months old and I am having issues with him right now whenever I take him for a walk and he sees strangers he just keeps barking and growling what can I do.because some people don’t understand he is still a baby and just a big mouth that he won’t bite….

      Hey Melisa, these dogs naturally inherit some stubbornness of their parents. So, this should take time to correct, and eventually refrain your puppy from doing so. Do not leave your dog alone for long hours as separation anxiety also sometimes leads to excessive barking.

      You should remember that, it is still a pup, and hence, its training is yet to complete. Take him to the dog park, where he can meet new doggies and their masters. While training, give him treats from time to time for good behavior. Seek professional help, if the problem persists.
