    Recently moved into a new house, it’s been raining and every time I let my dog into the garden she comes in with these small worms attached to her.
    Can someone tell me what they are and if I should be concerned.

    The photo isn't clear enough. If you get one under a magnifying glass, you can go online - there are plenty of sites/groups for identifying various forms of wildlife.
    Though as they appear dark in colour, it's unlikely they are internal worms as those are normally white(ish) - living inside animals in the dark, they have no need to evolve colour.
