Pets are human too! Abongile Nzelenzele interviews fitness fanatic Liezel van der Westhuizen for advice on keeping dogs active.

It’s not only humans who are cooped up inside – their pets are too!

Abongile Nzelenzele asked KFM fitness guru Liezel van der Westhuizen for advice on keeping your dog active during the lockdown, especially relevant to those who live in a flat or small house.

I don’t think cats even notice there’s a lockdown!

Liezel van der Westhuizen, presenter - KFM

Hide treats… it keeps them mentally and physically stimulated… Don’t give them human treats!

Nzelenzele also played several WhatsApp voice notes from listeners with advice.

I put my dog on a leash and walk her around the garden… throw a ball… if you don’t have a garden, set up an obstacle course around your house…

Cathy, listener - CapeTalk

I take my dog on a simulated dog walk in my house… You can play hide and seek. You can do an Easter hunt… Check me out on Instagram [https://www.instagram.com/poochy_coo/] where I share daily videos on how I’m keeping busy with my dogs…

Craig, listener - CapeTalk

… Make sure your floor has a non-slip surface [e.g. a yoga mat] … Encourage your dog to walk over different surfaces… Praise them and reward them… For more hints and tips, contact me on Instagram [https://www.instagram.com/karenanimalbehaviourist/].

Karen, listener - CapeTalk
