Brown dog ticks do not confine themselves to dogs alone, they can also be associated with other animals and people. At outdoors, they attach themselves on grasses and shrubs and will attach to any passing host, which may be a dog, cat or people. The brown dog ticks are usually infesting homes after being brought inside by pets or people.
