The main idea is that as much as you try to protect your dog of fleas, sometimes it just happened to be impossible. If you socialize your dog, the risk of receiving fleas is higher.

You just need to find a very good dog flea treatment and your problem will be solved… for a while…

If you see any signs on your dog that might show you that your dog has fleas, let me tell you, the probability is very high to be so. If it happened to see a flea in your dog’s fur, I have to tell you that there are maybe 40 more that you can’t see. If you see flea bites on your body, one thing is sure: your dog has much more on his, as fleas prefer dogs as hosts instead of us.
