-20F is -29C. Okay, that is cold even for me. When it gets that cold, more frequent, shorter outside time. I won't put a leash on and go for a walk, we get more exercise in staying near the house and playing.
Cuz's and Ultraball stay flexible and bouncy, even when covered in frozen dog drool in -30 temps. I have a glow-in-the dark ball and we go out on the road (I live in a quiet rural area, hardly, rarely any traffic), and I do a few intense fetch sessions. Keeta is getting up there in age, at 9 years old - I notice she wants back in after a few minutes, and I let her in. Gryff can play like a maniac with no regards to the cold, but half an hour in that kind of cold is my limit.
So shorter, more frequent outings. Stay close to home and play hard. Fetch with a ball launcher, or a good, intense tug session will do a lot to expend pent up energy and keep both of you warm.
