Avon SSS is pretty good for mosquitoes--and you can rub it between your palms, then lightly go over your dog with it, so they don't get too oily . But it doesn't seem to offer us much protection against the blackflies. Vanilla extract (the real stuff, not the artificial) seems to work better, but even that only works for 10 minutes or so till the oils and alcohol in it have evaporated, and you'd need an awful lot of it to protect an entire dog.
