Discover the Best Flea and Tick Dog Collars for Your Adult Dog or Puppy

Find the Perfect Flea and Tick Dog Collars for Your Pup

A flea or tick collar normally works by emitting a toxin or gas that is harmless to dogs and humans, but kills the fleas and ticks you want to avoid. These products simply lace your dog with an element that those ticks and fleas despise, thereby ensuring that they either die or get discouraged from hopping on your dog at all. Our team has found the top collars on the market for your small, medium, and/or large dog.

There are actually a number of different designs and technologies that can go into the creation of these collars. However, some are more effective at keeping ticks and fleas off your dog than others. In particular, a lot of these flea collars will emit a toxin that is released constantly in such a way as to coat the entire dog – rather than just impacting the canine’s neck. You don’t want to use a flea and tick collar in every scenario, but they are very useful for specific situations. For instance, they can be useful in conjunction with other flea control products as part of a more cohesive flea and tick  strategy. Another consideration is that like humans, dogs can sometimes have sensitive skin. While you will probably find that these collars are fine for 99% of dogs, there will be those one or two who have issues with the collar. If you find your dog is scratching or whining, then you might want to consider trying a different product or avoiding this particular technique altogether.
