How common is tape worm in dogs?

Does anyone know how common tape worm is in dogs? Cats most often get tape worm from killing/eating mice, rats and birds I think. So if my dog can't kill anything because he's too small and clumsy and isn't prone to eating dead things (we've past some, he's shown interest but that's about it) is it something I should worry about?
I'm just thinking that if its cause for concern I might look into a heartworm/flea prevention that also covers tape worm, if it isn't a problem then I'll stick with Revolution.
Anyway, let me know what you think...
