Since the infestation is so bad, besides just treating the dogs:
Flea treatment for the yard
Flea powder or spray that's safe for furniture and pets
Put the dog in the yard
If your dog sleeps with you or any family member wash all of your bedding.
If it's washable wash your dogs bed, and wash his blanket.
While bedding is washing cut the flea collar into a couple pieces and place it in the vacuum bag or canister, vacuum the floor making sure to get any cracks and crevices and under the furniture and if you can appliances.
Vacuum the furniture.
Apply the flea powder or spray to the floor, furniture, and the dog's bed.
Bring the dog in and give him a flea bath.
While the dog is inside treat the yard for fleas, follow the instructions on the flea treatment exactly or hire someone to treat the yard.
Two or three days after the dogs flea bath apply the topical flea preventive or give him the pill depending on which flea preventive you decide to use.
Re-vacuum everything, and reapply the flea spray or powder every 3 or 4 days for the next 3 weeks to make sure that any developing/hatching fleas are killed.
