OK ... I won't call it an " alpha roll " . Many very young pups don't like being put on their backs . I spent at least 15 minutes with each pup at bedtime , with a baby brush I groomed then on top , both sides and their tummy's . Then I'd place a sleeping pup in their bed . Please don't high jack this thread to " get me " / Start a new thread ! Add : Corgi , it's called early socializing .
