Use Venky's Furfree shampoo and if the infection is more severe then use Notix Forte talcum powder after shampoo. If you want to use an Ayurvedic method to cure this then one shampoo that is said to be very effective is Notix Green shampoo which is a neem based daily shampoo. The like for this product is: http://www.petcareindia.com/pr oducts_f.htm.
I use a clicker to teach sit, stay and leave command. It's a reward based training. Pick up a clicker and treats small enough for puppy to be devoured quickly. If you don't have a clicker then simply use word 'yes' the moment the puppy exhibits the requested behaviour.
There is ample resource on internet for these commands.

Hi Vijay,
I don't know, how effective are the soultions provided by Anil & Navjot.
By my experiece I can say, use RID for ticks.
Take 3-4 ml of RID solution & mix it with 1 lt. water. Apply this solution under dog's coat.
Let it dry, it will take around 30 mins. Though its not poison but I would say keep your dog busy in playing anything else to avoid the licking by dog.

i use it once a week and they are doing great since 5-6 years. RIDD will hit my pocket deeply as i have about a dozen odd rescues too. So i work better on natural method.

I don't encourage people to use RIDD on a 3-4 month old puppy. RIDD is to be used only when a puppy is 'heavily infected' by ticks and the infection is so severe that the puppy has started to bleed due to severe itching. Ticks can be caused seasonally which is normal and what is required is effective but safer way to control it. RIDD can potentially wipe off those essential oils in Labradors body which keep their coat drier and shiny.
The most effective way is to manually remove the ticks off the dog's coat using a hand or a plucker. Using plucker requires a little care as an amatuer may accidently injure the skin. Plucker can effectively remove those ticks which are hiding deep into the skin, sucking the blood.
It's important to first make the skin coat less conducive for ticks to live and an effective anti-tick shampoo can do this job quite well.
