    Dawn dish detergent ~ great flea shampoo!

    I read somewhere that you can use Dawn dish detergent as flea shampoo for your dogs.  Well, today I tried it out.  It works great!  The fleas were literally falling off the dogs with hardly any effort on my part!!  I highly recommend it.  Can't say yet as to how long it keeps the fleas away, but works instantly!
