How I Triumph Over Fleas & Ticks. Phase One: IN The Dogs

My Yard
: Three (totally dog-proof fenced) Acres of Woods!
Dogs Lifestyle: I have a Dog Door (it’s the Key To Happiness) All dogs can race in and out as they choose, and play in our Woods (except when I leave for errands. then I shut them off from the Woods; they still have the house and the Dog Door and a nice sized yard, but it’s a much smaller section)
The Number of Fleas on My Dogs: ZERO
The Number of Ticks on my Dogs: Maybe 1 or 2 per dog per year!
Amount I Spend on Flea & Tick Prevention: About TEN DOLLARS TOTAL PER MONTH

HOW I TRIUMPH OVER FLEAS & TICKS IS A THREE-PHASE ATTACK:
IN The Dogs, ON The Dogs and UNDER The Dogs

PHASE ONE: IN The Dogs

This part is very simple. When it’s Flea & Tick Season I sprinkle Garlic Powder onto their Food.  I get it at a Dollar Store or a Generic Store-Brand for only about $1.00 per container.  
It does not make my Dogs smell Garlicy, at least not to me, but I guess it does to fleas & ticks. 
Do Not over-do it, it is rare, but some dogs can be sensitive to it.  If your Dog happens to develop any tummy issues, mention to the Vet that you are giving this.
AND PLEASE BE VERY SURE YOU ARE BUYING GARLIC POWDER — NOT GARLIC SALT!!
