Default Ticks?

Hello, this is Goofy.
Yeah, I don't know how to name a dog.

Since 3-4 weeks ago I've fighting against those annoying parasites but every time I search his fur, I'll find another one lurking. I've been regularly giving him baths in 15 days intervals but it's been impossible to completely remove them.
Also, can someone tell me a way to effectively teach him to walk beside me without pulling the leash?

Use a topical flea/tick product, they are very effective and are applied every 30 days. Here is a link to a product comparison chart:

Dog Fleas: Compare Flea Medications and Other Flea Control Products

If you don't live in the USA these exact products might not be available, but if you ask your vet there's probably something comparable.

training class and the proper tools. The tool is only as good as the training that it used with it. I recommend the Original Sporn halter for people that are having trouble getting a nonpulling behavior. Hard to reward the dog for not pulling when it is pulling all the time
