Finding the best flea and tick collars for dogs can be tricky with so many brands to choose from, but there are several reputable brands that are especially helpful for keeping your curious Boston terrier safe while she explores. Especially if you live in a mountainous or rural area, getting on top of insect protection is essential to the health of your dog and the comfort of your home.
- One size fits all
- Protection works for seven months
- Reflective shield makes your dog easier to spot
As Amazon’s listing for “fastest-acting flea collar,” the Adams Flea and Tick Collar is a one-stop journey toward a bug-free season. With over seven months of protection per collar, it’s not something you’ll need to worry about more than once or twice a year. It’s a one-size-fits-all collar that’s easily adjustable, so don’t stress about finding the right size for your pup, either.
This collar is durable and flexible enough to last all seven months, so you won’t need to stress about it breaking or becoming defective. It’s water and weather resistant for even the most adventurous canines. What else could you need? Oh, wait — it’s reflective! Now, you’ll always be able to spot your Boston terrier, which can sometimes be tricky due to their small size.
- Safe for dogs over 12 weeks of age
- Collar is adjustable
As one of the top-selling flea and tick collars at Petco, the Sentry Dual Action Collar protects pets with deltamethrin and other pet-safe insecticides that kill bugs at the source. It’s safe for use on dogs and puppies over 12 weeks of age, so you won’t have to wait long before you can clip this collar to your pup.
Product reviews confirm the efficacy of this collar. One review from user Hungry Pug Puppy gushes about their home’s lack of ticks, despite having more ticks than they can count just steps from their home. Since using this collar, they’ve had zero ticks!
- Comes with two collars for a total of 12 months of protection
- Repels mosquitoes as well
The collars in this two-pack last six months each, giving you a whole year of flea and tick prevention in one easy purchase. Your Boston terrier will be protected from nose to tail thanks to this adjustable (yet surprisingly soft) collar, which has two buckles to ensure it stays in place for all six months. Still, it’s easy enough to remove if you need to — not that you’ll need to! This product is 100% waterproof, so it can stay on at bath time.
The Hartz Ultra Guard Collar has one unique benefit you won’t find in just any flea and tick guard: It repels mosquitoes, too! That’s one less thing to take care of when the weather gets warm, and one less itch to scratch for your dog.
- Also guards against flea larvae, chewing lice, and sarcoptic mange
If you’re looking for a natural way to protect your pet from insects, this collar may just be the one for you. Especially since Boston terriers can have skin sensitivities, the hypoallergenic ingredients let you rest assured that your dog won’t be itching around the clock.
The Sobaken Flea and Tick collar works on more than these two common pests. Your pup will also be guarded against flea larvae, chewing lice, and sarcoptic mange, which can all wreak havoc on your fur baby’s health. This waterproof collar comes with a lifetime warranty and a lovely guarantee by Sobaken: For each product purchased, they’ll donate $3 to animal rescue organizations. Score!
