Pine cones are a wonderful free resource that you can collect to make crafts out of - especially for Christmas! Make an activity for your dog out of this and train them to collect the pine cones and drop them into a bag. You may find they will race around the forest or park area and collect way more than you need. But that's ok, it is a great exercise for them and they really are a help. Plus pine cones last, so you will always have some on hand. Your dog will need a reward for all their hard work, though!
Another activity is to make some dog biscuits for your special pup. They will want to hang out while you make them, so every now and then, yell out "treat" and fire off a tiny bit of the goodies! Make them leap or search for those yummy bits. Then when you have finished mixing the biscuits, their reward is to lick the bowl. This activity is a good wet day treat, and will fill in a bit of time with some fun stuff. Your Aussie-Corgi just loves food, so they will be very happy to help.
The Aussie-Corgi is a true companion and will excel in many agility sports and have great stamina to go walking with you. Train them to be obedient and return on command, or teach them tricks like roll over, crawl along, or even to stand on their hind legs and 'hop' along. They will be more than happy with a job to do. Give a lot of praise for a job done well or a trick well performed. Get them to pick their toys up and put them away at night, or they can even help the children pack up their stuff before bed. Give them a food-filled dispenser toy when you have a meal; you might be able to eat all your own dinner in peace. Then after a busy day, your dog will want to cuddle up and will finally rest.
