Fleas prefer heat to cold

Happier in a mild climate; fleas prefer heat to cold, so they would rather spend their time indoors where it’s toasty warm. So your pet’s coat kind of makes the perfect habitat: there’s all you can eat buffet, the temperature is just right, and hey, the pooch lives indoors so no worries about the cold or the elements ruining their fun. To make matters worse, fleas don’t come to their new home without a housewarming present. These annoying creatures can carry bartonellosis and tapeworm to pass along to your dog. Like the fact that their constant biting causes incessant scratching and allergies wasn’t enough on its own!
