Spaniel club is taking a break through the summer. The lessons will start again on Sunday 23rd September 2018
We are now in Tick season so its important to check your dogs every time you come back from a walk. We had a dog in the groomers
that had 15 ticks on her. This can cause all sorts of problems for your dogs.
Tick o Twister is a very good tool that you can easily use to remover the tick without upsetting it. Once the tick is removed, you will need to
ensure you kill it (normally squashing it in some kitchen towel works well).
You must make sure you get the head out so turning anti-clockwise will do the trick.
Spot on treatments still allow the ticks to attach before killing the tick so its important to check them regularly.
