Okay I know this is a dumb question, but how do dogs get fleas in the first place? I mean maybe from other dogs. My dogs used to be outside dogs now they are inside dogs, yet they have never had fleas. Maybe I've just been lucky.

I have used the garlic powder before and it seemed to work. I also put the acv in the water and it also seems to help. Maybe it is overkill but living in the thick of the woods it can get really bad.

Kelly, yes it is usually from other animals, not just dogs. And once there is one flea, they multiply worse than rabbits, lol...
