Bugs bugging the Dog (and me)!

We are new to camping with our dog and she seems to love being outdoors with us all day but the bugs really love her! I'm not sure how much she is really bothered I think it probably bothers me more but I feel bad when they are swarming her face and butt. Any tips to help this problem?

Avon Skin So Soft spray

Works so well I bought a case of the smaller (spray) bottles on eBay.

Edit: obviously you shouldn't spray straight into the facial area...I spray a paper towel and wipe it on. Recommend doing the same thing around the "other end".

I do spray it directly on the body area fur....lightly.

Sneak and I use it on our arms, legs, wipe on face, etc. Works great to keep the skeeters at bay. They're vicious 'round here!

Is there an odorless version of that now? I swear my Dad's mom used to, and now HE does it, practically bathe in that stuff. Can't walk into Dad's house without my eyes watering and my nose burning.

As evidenced by my signature line, I ain't no spring chicken any more....I just don't wanna "smell old" too!

Additionally, our Fred sleeps with us....do NOT want that scent on the bedding.

The smell imo is strong at first "peppermint maybe" but goes away fairly quickly.
Lol there ain't no way in hell max is bedding down with us!

I actually dont mind the aroma!
I might smell worse without it!

I was confused when I looked up what that was since it said a muscle relaxant? Is it the scent that keeps the bugs away?
