We never use tick or flea collars or spot-on chemicals to prevent fleas and ticks.

  • We have never had fleas in 10 years
  • During tick season we check each dog EVERY DAY from head to toe for ticks and remove any found
  • We do a titer blood test once a year for Lyme diesease

We strongly feel that the risk to our dogs and our family due to the exposure to known carcinigenic chemicals far outweighs the risk of Lyme disease.  Visit our page on the dangers of tick and flea collars and spot-on chemicals as a starting point.
