If you saw a bunch running on him you have a major problem in your house. I'm not a fan of chemicals at all but I would get some Frontline for him, bath him if you chose and then wait a couple of days before you apply it. If he was bathed recently just skip that and put the Frontline on. Using the stuff on the dog won't get all the fleas in the house though, it only kills the ones that jump on him. I would also bomb your house. I can guarantee you if you see 10 fleas on the dog you have thousands in your house. Not the time to play around, toxify and then fall back on natural stuff if you want. I had to do that earlier this year, they were so bad I resorted to chemicals. With all the fleas around you need to get your dog checked for tapeworms. I would do the bombs as well as a premise spray, get under couch cushions, between matresses, in the closets........any dark place they will hide and lay eggs. If you have hard wood floors bomb the rooms with carpet. Good luck.
