Melbourne Woman Introduces New Way to Exercise Her Dog in Lockdown

A Melbourne woman used a totem tennis set to entertain and exercise her dog during stage four lockdown on August 3.

Fiona Dalwood filmed a video that showed the Boston terrier, Gomez, enthusiastically chasing the swinging tennis ball in the backyard of the house.

“Took the dog for a walk,” Dalwood wrote in her Twitter post that featured the video.
