Try neem oil...you can buy garden type that you mix and attach to hose and water the lawn with...can also introduce nemotodes into your lawn they will eat the flea larva.
DE as mentioned, sprinkle this through the fur, especially near rump and neck area.
You have to vacuum every day...make up a solution of neem oil (not the garden spray stuff) water and lemon juice in a spray bottle and spray around baseboards, under sofa/furniture etc. Can also do a spray of few drops of lavender oil and water (shake often) and mist bedding.
Invest in a steam shark or other and melt them (not on the dog of course).
You can buy natural flea shampoo (with neem), or if using a basic dog shampoo then add neem and/or lavender (just 5-6 drops to it) and use to wash....do a lemon water rinse after. Once dry, back comb in some DE and apply around baseboards and where ever dog won't stick his nose
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
