There doesn’t seem to be a tick season anymore in many parts of the country - ticks seem to be a problem throughout the year. Before a tick attaches itself to your dog they are almost invisible to the naked eye. One way to remove many ticks from your dog after a hike is to roll a sticky lint remover across your dog’s coat. This is particularly effective with short-coated dogs. Another method to accomplish the same thing with long-coated breeds is to use a wide pice of masking tape, masking tape or similar tape with reduced adhesive power and pat across your dog’s body. It doesn’t take much sticking power to pull the tiny critters off your dog.
