Trying to remove the ticks can cause infection if you leave the head in,

Also I think it has already been said, but painting stuff on ticks makes them regurgitate all the nasty bugs and viruses they have in them into the dog, which causes diseases.
For me, Frontline everytime, and remove them whenever I see them.
All I can say is if your dog is happy to sit sniffing strong chemical smells, it either has no sense of smell, or it needs to go to rehab
