“Outta the car, open the door, I run, run, run, run, spring off, jump high, middle dive I split that big leaf pile right in two – whoooo, hooooo– now I want to see if you can post some video for me to watch too,” says Stella, leaf peeping and leaping expert.

As children, we all remember the brisk air, crisp crinkle of fall leaves – and the excitement of launching ourselves into leaf piles just as soon as they were stacked up. There’s a reason jumping in leaves makes such fond memories. It’s good for the soul and makes us happy. One dog that reminds us about the joy of leaf jumping is Stella (@dognamedstella). Videos of this yellow lab’s epic jumps have been seen and loved by millions of us.

Unfortunately, a lot of people now avoid leaf piles because they can be an ideal environment for ticks and fleas. Although fall’s cooler weather brings some relief from summer bugs, ticks and fleas remain active through near freezing temperatures. Leaf piles offer shady, often moist, and cool areas in which ticks and fleas are known to thrive. A single tick bite can transmit a number of diseases, so the best way to stay healthy is to avoid being bitten in the first place.

Thankfully, Wondercide products help families stay protected when playing in the leaves – so they reclaim leaf piles and recapture the joys. And Stella wants to invite everyone to get out there and show off their best leaf moments.

Wondercide Leaf Play, Prep and Post Tips:
Before grabbing a rake and gathering family, friends and fur-babies, here are some helpful tips from Wondercide to stay safe while playing. Products mentioned are available at 15% off during the contest via the contest page on Wondercide.com and on Chewy.

1.    Treat your yard. Before the leaves fall and while they are falling, treat your yard with Flea & Tick Yard + Garden spray. The spray will kill, repel, and prevent fleas and ticks. Do two initial applications within a few days and then use monthly to keep fleas and ticks out of your backyard fun.
2.    Use Insect Repellent spray on yourself and the family. Use a repellent on your skin so ticks don’t want to bite or hang out. Wondercide’s Insect Repellent (sold on Wondercide.com) will repel ticks and mosquitoes, and it kills when they’re sprayed directly. Re-apply every hour or as needed.
3.    Use flea & tick prevention on your pets. Protect your pets with Flea & Tick Pets + Home spray. For an added layer of protection, choose Flea & Tick Collar or Spot On.
4.    Keep an eye on the piles. Always supervise children and pets while they play in the leaves. Make sure they stay away from car traffic, and know where they’re at the entire time.

About Stella
Stella is a 9-year-old English yellow Labrador retriever who hails from the wild and wonderful state of Maine. She lives with her human family and sister (technically niece) named Mabel, who is a 2-year-old yellow lab. Stella and Mabel take advantage of everything the four dramatic New England seasons have to offer. This is especially true for the fall, when they spend most of their time launching themselves into leaf piles their humans build for them. Stella and Mabel live for family and the outdoors, and their human DOGuments their endless adventures online for people to enjoy. Whether they're exploring the north woods, swimming in Maine's countless waters, or destroying snowmen when winter rolls in, these pups are always busy making the most of their labby lives.
