Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I use Advantix for Diz, but what about other bugs when out and about? When we went hiking a couple weeks ago we got swarmed by these little gnat type things and so I sprayed myself head to toe with off, and then sprayed his body. I also sprayed a bit on my hands and rubbed it on his chest and head. Do you think that's okay? Or is that a no no?

If it has DEET in it, then yes, is a NoNo

I just got in the rose geranium oil and have started using it. I haven't seen a tick on Kenzi since and when we went to the park the other day for a family reunion there were tons of gnats. My husband got eaten alive by them but I was with Kenzi and her doped up geranium collar and I didn't get a single bite. The gnats were around but they didn't bite me.
