This is an article from Dogs Naturally Magazine. It doesnt offer any alternatives, but if you read the comments, you will get some info on alternatives to the spot on stuff. I just like for people to at least be aware of alternatives and also to be aware that not all natural stuff works in all instances. I use the product Cedarcide, but right now it seems that it is going to have to be a daily thing around here and that gets to be a problem, even for me.

I've been using Sentry Natural Defense products on the dogs. They seems to work really well and they aren't expensive.
The spot treatment is a blend of clove, lemongrass, and cinnamon oils. $9 to treat 4 dogs for up to 4 weeks.

Amazon.com or Petco.
I have to warn you, it smells very strong for the first 24 hours but the fragrance dissipates eventually. It's not a bad smell...I actually like it...but it is strong.

Thanks, Courtney. I'm going to get some. We are having a horrible time with fleas this year. I thought it would be better since we have the kennels on concrete, but no such luck.

Definitely going to try that Sentry Natural Defense! I can NOT stand the thought of new puppies with fleas! We *cross fingers, knock on wood* so far haven't been hit by the (not going to say it) munchers so far this year.
