Hi,
I am new to using the Arduino Due board. I would like to know how to configure the watchdog timer on this board for my project. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

You don't. The arduino core developers set the watchdog timer off in the core before your sketch starts running. this is bad for you because you can only configure the wdt one time. thereafter any changes are ignored.

But I have to make use of this wdt in case the MCU hangs. My board has multiple sensors connected to the MCU. In case something happens where the MCU fails, shouldn't I have the wdt initialized?
