Ticks are Here to Stay - McCann Professional Dog Trainers

Ticks are Here to Stay

There was a time that Ticks seemed like mythical creatures in our corner of the world. We didn't have to worry about them because most of us had never seen one. Unfortunately, this is a far cry from our new reality.

In approximately the last 5 years, Ticks have become a very large issue for us.

With recent reports of Ticks en masse in local areas such as Conservations, parks and walking trails, it's a dark reality that we have to face. Luckily, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and many ways you can try to keep yourself and your pets safe.

With the help of Dr. Alex Avery, from the OurPetsHealth YouTube channel, we've put together a couple of videos to answer some of the common questions surrounding Ticks and the diseases and concerns they present.

Hopefully you can find a good solution for you and your 4-legged family members. 

As always, Happy Training!


Hi! I'm Shannon and I joined the McCann team in 1999 while training Quincey, my wonderful and spirited Rottweiler, to have good listening skills. I'm the Director of Online Training and Content for McCann Professional Dog Trainers and I enjoy writing about dogs and dog training for the McCann blog. I currently share my life with 2 Tollers (Reggie & Ned) and I love helping people develop the best possible relationship with their 4-legged family members.
