If you have an outside dog cut your grass. The flea may then die off. Then give your dog a bath with hot water. They will not like it but it will help greatly. Once your dog is flea-free you should give him a bath at least every 2 - 3 months. Flea bites should go away in time. If not you can buy a flea killer at a pet store.

Chemical flea shampoos are available today. If you're worried it might harm your pooch's skin, you can try natural alternatives. Some people use gentle soap and water. A paste made from Terramin clay or bentonite and water also works well. Other natural products you can use include:
  • Neem oil - This plant's bark and leaves have anti-ulcer, anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, antiviral and antifungal compounds. Mix an ounce of it with four to six ounces of water and two or three ounces of white vinegar. Drench your dog with water then apply the mixture. To disperse the neem oil further, you can brush your dog.
  • Red or white vinegar - It's germ-killing properties works great on dogs, and it's very safe to use. Just add four cups to your bath water. Make sure it doesn't get in your pet's eyes, though.
