The flies are really bad this year. Does anyone know what to put on dogs to keep the flies from biting their ears and the rest of their body?

I had a neighbor who coated his German Shepherd's ears with a thin layer of brown (medicated) Vaseline in the summer. He swore by it to keep the flies from attacking. (06/05/2009)
I have 2 Dachshunds. Very low to the ground with their short legs. I spray them down good with Off! Skinatstic. Works wonders on mine, keeping flies and mosquitoes away. (06/06/2009)
This is safe for dogs and people and works for flies and mosquitoes.
Take a spray bottle and fill half with amber colored Listerine and half with water. Spray the dogs and yourself, and anywhere food will be served. You will have no flies or mosquito problems. Lasts for hours and just repeat as necessary. Do not spray around eyes. (06/06/2009)
