Found this at L.L. Bean and bought one for my emergency kit.  I met a duck hunter while there and he told me he's used it plenty on his 2 labs (no I didn't get to meet them).  He even showed me how to use it and no, he did not work there, LOL!  Then I came home and found it again on Amazon.com.  Still, L.L. Bean was cheaper!  This is a good thing to add to your emergency kit!

Interesting tool. I am wondering how I would get the tool flat up against the body of my bopping Bichon though.  whistling

Do you find many ticks on your pups, Mary Ellen?

Now for someone like Kathleen Walsh, who removed 12 to 15 after one of her hikes, this would be a great find!

Wouldn't be worth it for the number of times I've found ticks. 

For a moment I thought you met the Lab owner at a duck pond!  Shows where my mind is at - NOT on what I'm reading, ha ha haa.

Neat tool for those that gets into the ticks.  They are terrible here in Arkansas. Wonder how well it would work on one of our fluffs?  Labs don't have long curly hair to get in the way.

I got a little confused at the title also and was wondering if a nipper was a nipping dog!  nodding
That looks good but I am so pleased we don't have to worry about ticks in NZ!

Funny, I was thinking Duck Dynasty guys- anyway interesting nipper- I found a tick on Noah months ago and it was over his eye.  Not sure that I would have wanted this to be that close to his eye.  Nice to have, just hope that you do not need it.

My policy is: If I have it then I will not need it, LOL!  I did find a tick on Sassy earlier this summer.  She loves to burrow around under shrubs looking for rabbits.  It was attached, but hadn't been there long.  I got it off with Vasoline.  I'm told that doesn't work, but it did for me.
