In spite of the high energy level of Pembroke Welsh Corgis, they require just a little amount of exercise for a happy, healthy life. The dog can adapt very easily to any setting, a ranch, a home with a yard, a condominium or apartment. Daily walking is required for about 30 minutes and if you have no yard at home, allow them to run in the park weekly. They, however, need lots of mental stimulation and should stay busy most of the day. Their root as farm dogs makes them want to keep agile hence their ability to excel in advanced training in obedience. Inadequate physical and mental stimulation may cause the dog to be anxious and very destructive if left alone.
Suitability as a family pet
Pembroke Welsh Corgis made a very lovable family pet-friendly to the family but reserved in the presence of guests. When you socialize them at a young age, they will not be timid or shy. They coexist well with other family pets but are not interested in unfamiliar dogs they meet at the park or during walks. It lives for about 14 years meaning it can grow with the children. They have a history of tail-docking hence the likelihood of being born without a tail. They are happiest on a large farm but also do well in spacious apartments with some play area outside.
