Fly repellent for dogs: add equal parts water and Listerine to spray bottle (I used 2oz each to try out). Then add a small amount of baby oil (less than an ounce), shake solution to mix. Once mixed spray on animal, then rub in solution with cloth.

Last but not least, you can treat dog clothing — such as a bandana, dog vest or harness — with permethrin spray or DEET, two chemicals most commonly used to repel flies. Be sure to give these chemicals plenty of time to dry. The idea is to not get them on your dog's skin.
