Whenever you bathe them, bathe with anti-flea/tick shampoo.

noted...thanks for all the suggestions...the collar will not be a good idea though...i do not know why they will just bite off each other's collar perhaps they dont like to wear it all the time...will only use the collar when walking them...Smile

If you want a natural way of preventing tick..... u can try vinegar... the cheap white vinegar not the apple cider vinegar. I use that to mop the house and rinse my dog after bath...
Using it for outdoor is not so bad coz the smell of vinegar can be quite strong. Mix the vinegar to water... and mop around the dog kennel.
I still use Frontline Spot on, 2 - 3 mths once on them coz my dogs goes for walks daily
