    We have a sheltie and he is -in my own humble opinion – the best dog ever.

    But seriously, he is very obedient and doesn’t bark much, doesn’t dig, doesn’t jump up on people or furniture, and doesn’t try to run away from the house.  Not sure if this is just him or the breed overall. 

    I’m not familiar with corgies, but I know our sheltie is good whether we leave him inside or outside.

    I have a corgi. My sister has a corgi. My SIL has a corgi. They are the best dogs ever! They are friendly, protective, adaptable, happy, fun, charming, cuddly, cute, amusing… Well, as you can tell I love corgis. I cannot imagine my life without a corgi.

    @michiru4ever:  I vote corgi but I’m biased as the Fiance had one before πŸ™‚ (put him down 2 years ago). We’re now going to continue the “tradition” and get another corgi next year! From what I recall with his dog, the only downsides were the constant thick, heavy shedding.; and the occasional attemps to “nip” – nothing serious, and he was scolded. We loved him and he was super cuddly, protective, well behaved πŸ™‚ Apparently very easy to train!

    I was raised with Shelties and have a 2 year old male right now. They are great dogs.  The only issue I have had with mine is that he likes to herd kids. We will go to the park and he’ll run circles around the kids barking them together. Our shelties have always been easy to train and gotten along with other animals. Get a sheltie!

    we have 2 shelties–LOVE them!! my dh’s family has had shelties for over 60 years, they’re hooked. very sweet, loving, smart dogs. corgis are adorable too though i’ve never had one. they’re much heavier, though–our older dog weighs only like 17 lbs which i like in case i ever need to scoop him up for some reason

    I grew up with multiple shelties, amazing loving dogs that are safe to have arround children and other pets. I have never owned a Corgi so I could be mistaken, but I have been told they can be somewhat aggressive and are better in a no-child household. If you plan to have kids (or already do) this may affect your decision.

    first, please use a breeder or a rescue, not a pet store!

    These breeds have very different temperments, (True, not all dogs follow breed standards) my SIL bought a Sheltie and as a herding breed, it bites at their kids ankles and pants non-stop, it has a very high activity level.  and the high pitched barking is non stop! Its about 2, and they keep saying it will grow out of it, but it is obnoxious to be around, even with all the training they have done with it.

    I don’t have any personal knowledge about Corgis however they seem much calmer! that would be my vote.

    Oh man, I love both breeds so much I’d have a hard time choosing!  I have a corgi mix and if we ever add another dog to the family I’d want to spring for a full corgi because I just think they’d make the cutest gang together.  But if a sheltie just fell into my lap for some reason, i couldn’t complain!  

    This may sound crazy and I’m not sure if you’re looking for something purebred, but have you considered a mix?  I actually met a sheltie/corgi mix last week and she just melted my heart – basically a fluffy lassie corgi.

    Sorry this is no help at all πŸ™‚

    I’m very biased! Team Corgi all the way πŸ™‚

    We got Penney when I was maybe 15 or 16 (29 now). She passed last summer. She was my BABY. She was a few months old when we got her and she did try to herd us when we ran for the phone or ran in the house. She would snap at our ankles. Eventually, this stopped. She was incredibly loving and had the funniest quirks.

    I’m not sure how long after we got Penney, but my mom and stepdad got another corgi named Toby. Totally different personality. He knew he was the baby and is very attention seeking (as in, will NOT leave you alone when you sit down. He wants the lovin).

    Both are/were FANTASTIC dogs. Very mindful, did not get into things, and trained to stay in the front yard without running off. They were VERY hesitant when I brought my son home as a newborn when I stayed at my mom’s for two weeks. When he got old enough to move around they were very skittish and stayed away. He is 7 years old now…and I would say that it took them a good 5 years to warm up to him (given, I obviously don’t live there now and their interaction with him was slim). As with any dog, you don’t leave a small child in a room with them alone.

    I miss Penney dearly and she really was an amazing little dog. Also, its hilarious to watch them wag their butts since their tails are docked πŸ™‚
