Preparing for Flea Season 2014

Good Evening All...
This year will be my first flea season with a Havanses. We have two other non-Hav fur babies but I didn't know if the Havanses had any special needs when it came to these annoying critters, due to their coats. I should note that I plan to keep his coat long...and live in New England, so flea season is short but can still be unpleasant for everyone. Any product recommendations or suggestions would be very welcome from all.

I, too, live in NE (Cape Cod) and use K9 Advantix II for both flea and tick control. I actually use it year round here, as ticks seem to be a constant on the Cape. I have not had any issues with fleas and I understand that this past season was especially bad. Hope this helps.

I use Frontline Plus for fleas and ticks and I have never had a problem.

I find it easier to see ticks on my hav than my other dog, which is a plus. Mine hasnt had a haircut yet either. I use Advantix, and unfortunately I have had to use it year round, for tick control. Fleas are not a problem.
