How to keep mosquito away from dog.

We moved over from Scotland to Canada last summer and my dog got an allergic reaction to too many mosquito bites, his face puffed up but the vet says that with each reaction it is more severe. We were spraying him everytime he went outside but it was getting to the point that as soon as I moved my hand to where the spray was he would back away. So I ended up holding his collar and spraying then he could go out. Or I would already have the spray in my hand without him knowing. He's a very clever dog so not easy to fool.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any type of collar I could use, or some other suggestion as to how to apply without him not wanting to go out because he's going to get sprayed.

I am going to invest in something for the back garden that kills the mosquito's as we have 2 young kids as well. But we go on walks to the parks and on trails away from the house often.

Maybe looking into K9 Advantix this helps to keep away and kill fleas,tick and mosquito's ..We use it on our Boston's since we are close to waterfront and really get them bad as soon as the weather is nice until about the fall. Here is a link for more info
