Herding Instinct Certification!

On June 13th, Luna and I will be participating in the Cascade Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club's annual herding instinct certification at Ewe-topia in Roy, Washington. We had the choice of having her test using 5 ducks or 3 sheep. Matt and I agreed that the ducks will be less intimidating for her. I just can't wait to see her try it out. I think she'll either run away scared from them or just bark the whole time. She can be a sassy girl. Hopefully she won't start peeing like she did when my friend Jamie came to take her out one afternoon while Matt and I were stuck at work late.

First she ran laps when Jamie came in the house. Then she started barking at Jamie even though she had treats to give her and she threw dog food at her. The dog food really interested the cats. Then she ran into the office shaking and peed on the floor - twice! Jamie ended up calling me and I ran home to take her out. I felt like Luna was a little kid who was bad at daycare!

Then next Saturday, the 30th, we are taking Luna to a Corgi picnic in Woodinville! I'm excited. She has reverted to only liking her own kind these days. When we take her to the dog park she is all teeth. Even at agility she tries to take on the Golden Retriever in our class!

Aren't Corgis the most fun? I probably could not take my girls to a dog park - like you said, 'all TEETH!' They would get kicked out! Wish I knew of some place around here that would teach herding training - my girls would be great at it! - well, at least 3 of them. The 4th would just be happy as a couch potato!
