Home Remedies For Keeping Fleas Off Dogs

Over the last decade, dog owners have seen a steady increase in the use of flea control products. This growth is due to the increased popularity of dogs as pets and the growing concern of dog bites among humans. Unfortunately, these licensed products can be very pricey and so the use of alternative means is increasing by large margins. The most common alternative or home remedy for fleas on dogs seems to be baking soda, but what else can you do with baking soda besides making cookies? Getting rid of fleas on dogs has never been easier! There are a variety of remedies to get rid of fleas on dogs and I will tell you how to use each of them, and how effective they are. Fleas. They are a nightmare for any pet owner out there to say the least. We are sharing home remedies that have been tested and proven to work time and time again.

Home Remedies For Keeping Fleas Off Dogs

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a popular home remedy for fleas and ticks. This inexpensive liquid can be used as a rinse or spray, but it’s most effective when applied directly to the skin.

Do not get apple cider vinegar in your dog’s eyes—it can cause irritation and burning.


Salt is another natural flea killer that you can use to kill and repel fleas. The salt absorbs the moisture in the air around your dog, which dries out their skin and leaves them vulnerable to dehydration. However, it’s important not to use too much salt on your dog because it can cause irritation or even burns if you put too much directly on them.

To prevent fleas from infesting your home, sprinkle a thin layer of rock salt all over carpets before vacuuming them thoroughly (at least once a week).


Rosemary is a natural flea repellent for dogs. With its strong aroma, this herb will keep fleas away from your dog. To make a rosemary rinse, add a handful of rosemary to boiling water, remove from heat and let cool. When the mixture has cooled, strain and pour into a spray bottle. Spray all over your dog’s coat once per week as needed to control fleas in between baths or when you see signs that they are present on your pet such as scratching or biting at themselves due to irritation caused by them biting their skin while trying to get away from them

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is a natural repellent. It helps to make the dog’s skin taste bad for fleas, thus discouraging them from biting your furry friend. Also, lemon juice can also help to heal flea bites.


Garlic is a great natural flea repellent. It’s also very effective in combination with apple cider vinegar, which we’ll talk about later. Garlic comes in fresh and powdered forms—you may have tried it yourself at home as an anti-inflammatory remedy. If you’re concerned about toxicity, don’t be: while garlic has been shown to have some mild side effects when ingested in large quantities (like stomach upset), its medicinal properties make it worth including in your dog’s diet when used appropriately.

You should keep your dog away from areas where they might chew on the garlic clove itself or get it into their eyes—there are safer ways to use this natural remedy!

These household items can be used to repel fleas naturally.

If your dog has fleas, the best way to get rid of them is with natural remedies. These include:

  • Using a flea comb. This is a handy tool that helps you get rid of fleas on your dog and in their environment. You can also use it to prevent future infestations by removing eggs from your carpet or couch, as well as adult fleas off of your pet’s coat.
  • Using essential oils (eucalyptus oil; lavender oil; lemon balm) for dogs at full strength or diluted in water or vinegar spray on the coat after bathing the dog will repel these pests naturally.
