When I did my research on Corgis everything I read was they are herding dogs. Mine did not get the memo apparently. She thinks she is a hound dog, and must sniff EVERYTHING! It takes us 15 minutes to walk 3 houses down the street. She has to sniff every blade of grass, every bird poop stain on the sidewalk, and every car (parked) that we pass. Maybe she is 10% herding dog, cause anytime she sees a cat she runs after it to say "hello" and SNIFF. Works with ducks too.
