Tick season

Spring came a little early this year and with it came this tick!  Lulu brought him in a couple of days ago.  He was pretty easy to spot since he was the darkest thing on a short haired dog.  Thankfully, I don’t think he was on her for long…maybe a couple minutes.  We’ve gotten the dogs into a routine called “tick check.”  Basically, Angela or I can simply say “tick check” and the dogs lie on the ground and get on their sides so we can do a “tick check.”  It only took a couple of days to get them to understand what we wanted them to do and now it’s just part of the dog park/going outside routine.

Here's the tick that befriended Lulu.

Tick next to pen cap...they're pretty small!


About Scott of UnderstandingVizslas.com

I have many varied interests. My background is in business, accounting, real estate and entrepreneurship. My wife Angela says at heart I am an entrepreneur and coach. I own three Vizslas: Rosco, Daisy, and Lulu. The picture on my Gravatar is Rosco, our oldest.

Realizing the transition to Vizsla ownership was not an easy one for myself and my wife, I decided to create a Vizsla DVD to help educate potential and current Vizsla owners on tips, tricks, and techniques that work well with our dogs.

I look forward to the day when no Vizsla puppies or adult dogs have to be rescued or given up because people did not have the resources to handle this highly energetic breed.
