    We had two boxers that ran in a large fenced yard or on the acreage when we were outside, but were basically house dogs. For fleas in the yard, I'd broadcast Borax (20 Mule Team) right before it rained. It will work for 2 or 3 years before you need to do it again. It also repels other multi-legged critters. For the dogs (and cats) themselves, I used DE (diatomaceous earth). I just put some in an old spice shaker jar and sprinkled it on, rubbed it all over.

    And now that I'm thinking about it, there was one year that every time I walked outside, I came back in wearing a tick. Blech. I can recall only one time that I pulled a tick off of one of the dogs in all the years we had them.
