    We were at a newfie day in December and a local vet was there ( sydney area) He told us to keep our dogs away from the long grass/bush as the ticks were terrible that year....Not sure only going by what I have been told

    I've been involved in the commercial fishing industry in the north of Oz for most of my working life - started as a deckie, got my skippers ticket, worked as a first mate for a while. Then tried to get out of it and studied for a science degree (specialising in fisheries.....), got that and then worked in the Pacific Islands for about 5 years with village fisheries on development projects, came back to Australia for a break, went back fishing, met a bloke, fell in love, bought a boat (as you do) and ended up back fishing.

    So finally got to skipper my own boat in the north of WA then our second one in the NT. Business was tough though and we ended up getting out a few years ago (and splitting up) and since then I've worked for a non-government organisation who works with the seafood industry on environmental issues. So I still get to abuse fishermen on a daily basis, great job but it's a tough industry. And now I'm studying graphic design online. And sitting here on dogforum when I should be working on an assignment.

    Yea I guess maybe its the suburb.

    When I moved there, and my dogs were getting ready to be shipped, the first thing I did was to ring the vet and find out about ticks and our vet had seen only 1 tick in 3 years.

    But we did live right in the city (well 8 k's from city) so that could be why.

    I just took molly for a walk around our local park this afternoon and there were fat ticks crawling all over the pavement, it was disgusting, had to give her a good check over when we got home. I wouldn't be surprised if the off-lead park was teeming with them too, the grass was so long it was hard to see the dogs - better give the council a call on Monday...
