What a lovely Corgi! His name is Gatsby. This Corgi and his Dad are playing with Gatsby’s many many toys. His dad gave names to each toy, probably to teach Gatsby to fetch each one by name. Corgis are extremely intelligent. They are playful, and they love to play with YOU. A game of squeaky toy can entertain them far longer than you think it possibly can. And if you don’t have time to entertain your Corgi, give him a Kong filled with healthy treats. That will occupy him for a good long while. Corgi has great focus. They can stay on this Kong undistracted for a very long time. Corgis are easily entertained. Fetching the ball is fun to them, and they seem tireless with the game. There are other toys you might explore just to provide a variety, just as Gatsby’s dad has done.
