How to Protect Your Pet for Summer Adventures

Thank you Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® for sponsoring this post. Complete and trusted flea and tick prevention starts with Hartz!

My puppy is as adventurous as they come. Like all little ones, she’s into anything and everything and forever on the go! I know she may look big, but my goofy doodle-bug isn’t even a year old. So, we’re all just trying to keep up with her. Haha! And that means taking her on plenty of summer adventures. But how do you protect your pet for summer adventures? If you’re a fellow dog owner, you know how much they enjoy galavanting outside! And as much as we love giving them that outside time, we don’t want to have to worry about pests like fleas and ticks. Never fear. The Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® Flea & Tick Collar is here to come to the rescue!

And on that note, today I’m going to share how to protect your pet for summer adventures with this easy to use collar and more! Because our pets deserve a fun summer as much as we do. We’re not going to let pests, the sun or anything else steal their joy! And Hartz fully agrees, so they offer everything from topical treatments to collars, like the Hartz® UltraGuard Pro®, for complete flea and tick protection. We all want our pets to be pest free and ready to take on any and every outdoor adventure that comes their way this summer right? And Hartz gives us that freedom for LESS money, which is always appreciated because summer is expensive y’all, especially when you have pets AND kids!

How to Protect Your Pet for Outside Play

1. Protect your pet from pests: Like I said, the Hartz UltraGuard Pro Flea & Tick Collar give you peace of mind and it gives your pet comfort. Just say no to itching! These handy dandy collars can help keep those icky parasites away by killing and repelling fleas, ticks, flea eggs and flea larvae and also preventing flea eggs from hatching for up to 7 months. That’s right…I said 7 months!

2. Protect your pet’s skin from the sun: My dog has a beautiful thick coat, so we’re probably going to get it cut short again this summer. She’ll be cooler, but it also means her skin will be more exposed to the sun, so we’ll probably skip the direct sun times of the day and stick to outside play and walks in the early morning and late afternoon / evening when the sun isn’t quite as strong! 

3. Protect your pet from dehydration: I always bring a portable water bottle and bowl with me when we’re outside. Just like with humans, pets get dehydrated quickly when they’re outside in the summertime. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Your pet will appreciate the frequent, fresh sips of water you offer. I promise!
