Animal expert Karen Wild discusses how to keep your dog active in autumn and winter
I love autumn with my dogs. They don’t get too hot, I don’t get too cold, and the leaves are gorgeous to pile our way through.
However, there are still some days where my older dogs look outside and shiver, or maybe I do, but they still need exercise. If you have been told to self isolate, you will need to do things for your dog whilst remaining indoors. And if this does apply to you - thank you for doing the right thing and keeping us all safe.
Firstly, what toys work best for busy dogs? If you are going to let them hang onto it, make sure it is chew-proof. The best anti-chew activities are a black, large Kong toy stuffed with sticky or wet food and frozen. Your dog will take a long time to investigate this tasty ice-lolly and is unlikely to have jaws powerful enough to ruin the rubber containing it.
