    Also hon, it's not idscipline she needs, it's training.
    For her first year she was named Skeeter. For the last few years she's been charlie.

    Training - you are completely right. Not sure how I go about this with a adult dog vs puppy

    Training should be pretty much the same really. The benefit is that you are over the puppy naughtiness. Patience will be your big winner I'm sure.

    She is just gorgeous. I love Corgis.

    Thanks. Personally I'd leave her name as is. She has known it for some years. To change it for a purely whimsical reason seems selfish to me, I'm sorry.

    I agree with Natty. An adult dog to train is in some ways better. Sure, you don't have the empty canvas so to speak of a young puppy, but there are other things that can make up for that.

    Patience and kindness are the key with an adult dog, until you get more of an idea what their previous life has been like.

    All the best - Corgis are a great dog. Very protective too as a general rule.

    I think your first stop should be obedience school! Even for a 4 year old it will be great to get her out socialising, build her trust in you and keep her mind stimulated. Plus it's lots of fun!

    Charlie is gorgeous- I love corgis, they are fully of personality. Ask at your local dog obidence club, they might have a class for adult dogs.

    Charlie or whatever you decide to call her looks a stunner.

    My most recent addition (except for the litter of pups) was 16mths old.

    I also hated her name, Tilly, thought about changing it to Chilli but we couldn't all stick to it so it's remained Tilly & she responds to it every time without fail which is why I wanted the similar sounding Chilli.

    If her name hasn't been worn out and she knows it well, I'd stay with Charlie. If she doesn't respond to it and you don't like the name then I say please yourself.

    By worn out I mean sometimes people say the name so often that the dog really doesn't respond to it. It's just nah nah nah in the background as far as the dog is concerned.
