The 5 Best Corgi Training Videos To Help Your Corgi Behave Better

These training videos will help you train your Corgi to walk well on a leash, stop barking, and “leave it“.

As you probably already know, Corgis are highly intelligent dogs.

In fact, Pemrokes are number 11 and Cardigans are number 26 respectively on Stanley Coren’s list of Intelligent Breeds.

This means that as dogs go, they’re pretty easy to train.

However, they’re also stubborn—and that can test even the most patient of dog owners.

Having had to re-train my adult (rehomed) Corgi, Winston, on various things like leash-walking and ‘leaving’, I know how frustrating it can be to go through this process alone.

It can feel like nothing you’re doing is right. Like you’re taking two steps forward followed by three steps back.

And with so much noise online about what’s ‘right’ and what’s ‘wrong’ when it comes to training, it can feel impossible to know who to listen to.

That’s why I want to share these YouTube dog training videos with you.

Because while I was training Winston, I did a lot of research and found that these ones were the most helpful (out of so many others online that weren’t).

I hope they help you too!

1. How to train your Corgi to stop pulling on the leash

A lot of leash training videos on YouTube recommend the use of shock or prong collars. Personally, I find these tools highly unethical and would never use them on Winston.

    Some dog trainers yank incredibly hard on the end of a leash, potentially damaging the dog’s neck. I also don’t agree with this approach. 

    These two videos are the most helpful ones I’ve found to help you leash train your Corgi. They have two slightly different approaches so skip through and see which one might work best for you and your Corgi.

    Gentler approach — training the habit of walking well before the dog pulls.

    Slightly firmer approach — how to correct a dog that pulls without using treats or saying their name. 

      2. How to train your Corgi to “leave it”

      I love most of Zak George’s dog training videos and this one about how to teach a dog to “leave it” is no exception.

      While he’s teaching a puppy how to do that in this video, this lesson is suitable for dogs of all ages.

      And it’s especially useful for people who have Corgis who love to eat EVERYTHING off the ground… so that’s all of us then?!

      Teaching your Corgi this will also make leash walking so much easier, too. 

        3. How to train your Corgi to come when called

        Yes, it’s another Zac George training video. I love this guy! He’s so patient and kind with his dogs.

        Plus he has hundreds of videos featuring different dog breeds, so you can see how to apply his lessons to all kinds of scenarios.

          4. How to train your Corgi not to bark

          In this video, Zac George shows you how to teach your Corgi to “speak”.

          Ironically, teaching your Corgi the command to bark will also help you teach them when not to bark (aka “quiet”). 

          As you can see, Zac is so patient and calm—it really shows us what it’s really like to train a dog new commands.

          What These Videos Have Taught Me About Training A Corgi

          Zac George’s YouTube channel is a goldmine of dog training tips and tricks.

          The biggest thing he’s taught me is that patience is so important.  

          No matter how intelligent a dog is, it will take them time and practice to learn a new command. And the best thing we can do as owners is to be kind, considerate, and patient.
