I have read a few testimonies on Garlic for flea control. I am interested because of two possible benefits. 1. it is definitively better on their health than [insert any chemical loaded brand] since it is made by nature. 2. Garlic is way cheaper that what it costs me to maintain my two doggies [boxers obviously].

My questions are:
1. How do you administer the Garlic and what is the recommended dose?
2. How smelly do they get?
3. If smell is a problem how do you deal with it? -I am one of those freaks that struggles to maintain a "dogie smell" free environment- [I know... sick isn't it? especially with my two balls of mud... I mean Boxers...]
