give your dog a bath
Dryer sheets keep flies away-as long as he does not have sensitive skin rub him with a drier sheet before he goes outside, flies hate the sent for some reason. We use them to keep flies out of the barn and off of the horses.
I have never found a "home remedy" that worked. Use a monthly medicine like Advantix or FrontLine. Comb the dog with a flea comb. Clean and vacuum your house thoroughly. You can also use Diatomaceous earth on the carpets, furniture and around the windows and doors.
Try this a mate of mine told me when her dog had fly problems:
2 cups vinegar, 1 cup Avon Skin So Soft, 1 cup water, 1 table spoon of Eucalyptus oil, 1 table spoon of citronella oil.
Put it in a spray bottle and shake it then just spray on your dog's coat.
