Hi! You'll want to use tweezers to firmly grasp the tick's body to pull it out.

Here's an article that gives some tips (also what *not* to do): http://www.pets.com/petcare/articles/how-remove-ticks.

If you're still having trouble, call your vet to see if they have suggestions or want to see your dog to help remove it.

Take care!
