Bed Bugs Or Dog Fleas
Fleas are prevalent in bedding, carpets, pet enclosures, and other areas, where they readily get their prospective hosts. Almost similar to fleas, bed bugs are mostly found in dark places, especially in bed frames, cracks of bed (if any), mattresses, and places where people usually sleep.
Unlike fleas, bed bugs are brought into the home primarily by humans. And when you see a bed bug, they won't jump like a flea. Bed bugs like to crawl around, and this is one of the easiest ways to be able to tell if the pest you've encountered is a bed bug or a flea.
Signs of bed bugs are different from signs of fleas in the bed. Bed bugs typically leave rust colored markings on bed sheets. The bed bugs also tend to discard their exoskeletons as they molt from one life cycle stage to another. Fleas on the other hand leave black colored debris.
Fleas are not the only tiny vampires lurking in your dog's world. The tick is an arthropod that feeds on the blood of its host, including dogs, cats, and humans. The tick jumps onto a host, attaches its mouthparts into the skin, and sucks blood until it becomes engorged.

Bed bugs prefer to feed on human blood and unlike fleas and ticks; they are not bioengineered to move through fur and hair. Penny explains that while bed bugs do not seek out canine hosts that everything is dependent on the level of infestation and if the problem gets extreme enough, it's possible that bed bugs may infiltrate a dog's bed as a secondary source of food.
