Practically every dog that I sit nowadays has fleas (I am a travel sitter, not at-home), and so do all of mine. We've used Frontline Plus, flea shampoos, garden sprays, contact sprays, sulfur in the yard, diatomaceous earth -- nothing seems to get rid of them!

I hear that fleas have been a problem for a lot of folks this year, especially in my area of Dallas/Fort Worth. They've developed immunities to most of the flea products you can buy so I'm wondering if anyone has had success with any that I haven't heard of. It would be nice to be able to share this information with clients and even offer to try and help fight the flea infestation.

For most dogs it's just an inconvenience having a few fleas, but my littlest dog has sensitive skin and ends up with huge welts and open sores from scratching. We've been doing the best we can to treat it but when we finally get one spot healed another one pops up somewhere else. Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated!!

2015-06-19 10:17:50 -0600 asked a question Is there a way to send someone a message without requesting a sitting?

As a sitter, sometimes if I'm unavailable, I'll want to help my clients find another sitter. If I have to send a sitter request to another sitter but for someone else's dog, it makes it dificult. Isn't there a way just to ask someone a question through messages? Or, like an actual real forum where I can get a separate message inbox for questions related to services offered?

The way the site is set up can be inconvenient.
