I was just watching your video and had to laugh.  My husband used to have a "pride and joy" lawn til we got the pups and now he is in an ongoing battle (losing).  I tell him we need to just concrete over the entire back yard :)

I am very thankful....Our two do not dig.  We did however have an Aussie that was clearly attempting to communicate with China......He would dig to attempt to stay cool.  Are Cinny and Nutmeg digging for something (ie animal) or just for fun?

Instead of things like the nice brickwork runway, you might consider simply letting them make their own paths. We've done some engineering, like blocking off places we didn't want paths or pruning tunnels under the rhododendron. You might want to avoid a sharp transition between soft turf and hard surface where they'll be cornering; they might slip. The dog paths have a soft, natural look to them, you just incorporate that. Of course, with the bare dirt, you'll have mud when it's wet (like it always is here in Seattle), so part of your yard comes indoors and you need dog towels and teach "wipe our feet!"
Your dogs are awfully cute.

I like the lawn art courtesy of the cute corgis. We in addition to the corgis have a doberman that likes to dig for moles!

They look quite innocent. Are you sure there are not rowdy neighbor dogs sneaking into the yard and causing the trouble? Sweet little Corgis would never do such a thing, I'm sure.

hahaha. we've hired the same landscape consultants! Rafa's in charge of weeding and pruning. Figs rarely can touch the ground as he jumps to reach/eat all of them. Great reduction in feed $$ during fruit season!

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!
Yeah, we used to have a yard, too. Then we hired Pembroke & Co. as, uh, "landscaping consultants".
We just adapted to the idea that the corgwyn are part of the local ecology, going as far as strategic pruning for traffic engineering, and major heavy-duty staking to protect vulnerable young plantings (the dogs have never damaged or dug up a plant, but might run them down). There are a few holes, and bare dirt in major runways, but it's a peasant cottage garden, not a putting green. We just got used to a higher entropy level.
They clean up most of the fallen fruit (to the point where we feed them less in late summer).
What I like about these dogs is: they'll dig a bit here or there, but they don't dig escape tunnels.

You are so right: you are no longer chair of the Landscaping Committee.
It's kind of nice that way, don't you think?

We used high grade pepper in the holes we didn't want them in. We left other holes "unseasoned". Ours are generally too busy running around now to dig.
