  1. Using tweezers, grab the tick by the head or mouth parts right where they enter the skin. Do not grasp the tick by the body. 
  2. Without jerking, pull firmly and steadily directly outward. Do not twist the tick as you are pulling. 
  3. Using methods such as applying petroleum jelly, a hot match, or alcohol will NOT cause the tick to 'back out.' In fact, these irritants may cause the tick to deposit more disease-carrying saliva in the wound. 
  4. After removing the tick, place it in a jar of alcohol to kill it. Ticks are NOT killed by flushing them down the toilet. 
  5. Clean the bite wound with a disinfectant. If you want to, apply a small amount of a triple antibiotic ointment
  6. Wash your hands thoroughly.

i belive you can put a match to the ticks head
Not advisable as the head is in the skin. The dog may get burned too.
