Fun Ways to Keep Your Family Active this Summer

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

One of my goals for the year was to increase my family’s physical activity! Because our lives are so hectic, we rarely have enough time to do anything else…which includes exercising! I’ll admit that there are days that my husband and I are so tired, that we have resulted to cartoon marathons to keep our kids entertained!

While there’s nothing wrong with watching cartoons, we started to rely on that a little too often which caused a significant decrease in our physical activity levels.

I was determined to change our mundane routine, so I decided to dedicate a few nights a week for a family nature walk! We have a lake and nature trail close to our home, so I thought that it would be fun to go on a nature walk and enjoy the beautiful scenery! And I wanted the ENTIRE family to participate, which includes our Malti-poo Khloe!

Khloe has been a part of our family for a very long time! She’s seriously the sweetest, and cutest dog in the whole world! Typically, whenever we would spend time outside, I would let Khloe stay behind. This is because I never found a flea and tick product that didn’t result in some type of side effect.

Khloe has very sensitive skin which is why I have to be extremely careful when choosing the best products for her. I’m so grateful that we tried the Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® Flea & Tick Collar! It was the best solution!

Each year, Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® protects more than 5 million dogs from fleas and ticks, with very affordable options! Visit to learn more, including where to find Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® in a store near you!

To be completely honest, I’ve never bought Khloe a flea and tick collar because I was afraid that the collars wouldn’t fit her tiny neck. She’s only 5 lbs, so it’s a little difficult to find products that fit her. To my surprise, the Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® Flea & Tick Collar fit her perfectly! And I love how it keeps my Khloe pest free and ready for any outdoor adventures this summer!

I was able to cut the collar to fit my Khloe’s neck comfortably!  It has a reflective strip for added visibility and it keeps the pesky parasites away, while preventing flea eggs from hatching for up to 7 months! With her new collar in place, we were able to start our family nature walk!

In his typical bossy fashion, my 2-year-old wanted to lead the nature walk! Lol! We followed closely behind him, but I let him think that he was leading the crew! ? Because we were having so much fun, we didn’t even realize that we had walked over 2 miles! 

This nature walk the best idea ever! The kids had a blast! We fed the ducks and spotted a few fish in the lake! Khloe even met a few new doggy friends!

It made me happy to know that we’ve finally found a fun way to stay active this summer!  Go Team Mathis!! ?
