Watchdog Timer on Stm32 platform and managing the timer during sleep cycles

I was hoping to use the watchdog timer on multitech’s mdot. I looked up the API implementation for the watchdog timer for stm32 boards and I noticed that the Stop method on the watchdog timer class throws an unsupported error. So I am trying to figure out how to manage the watchdog timer if the board goes to sleep for a minute or longer depending on the lora join backoff interval. Since the Stop method is unsupported for this platform, how do we prevent the watchdog timer from continuing to count down and cause the reset of the processor on wakeup?
