Re: Ticks only on dog's head.

I am thinking the reason your dogs head is the hotspot is because thats where they are catching their ride. Pup cuts through the brush and the ticks drop on. Tick suck ! Plain and simple .

Max, I like to suggest you redirect your pup when he gets unruly. Use a clicker and "charge" him. That means, get tiny chunks of chicken dogs, then one click followed by one treat in rapid succession. You will see that he assigns the click to getting a treat. Now, use treats and lure him into jumpi...
