Hi there,

Unfortunately dryer sheets will not effectively work to remove fleas. I have had clients that for whatever reason...their dogs had a reaction to Frontline.

In that case, we have switched to other topical products, such as Advantage.

If that is not possible, a Flea collar may be reasonable - I do not like the flea collar as much...

But all of these options would be better than a dryer sheet as this will not give your dog reliable protection from fleas.
