But if you have a dog at home, you can also take advantage of the flea-repelling properties found in coffee. At your dog’s next bath time, massage used coffee grinds into its coat, then rinse. The residual scent of coffee not only smells nice, it also repels fleas and other biting insects. Added benefit: Your dog’Hyour dog’ss coat will be softer and shinier.
