How do you get pine tree sap out of a dog's hair?

My Old English sheepdog Max likes to sit under a pine tree in my backyard, and thus he often gets sticky pine needle sap stuck in his fur. Is there any way to easily get this stuff out, preferably involving natural ingredients? (mi+)

I've tried soap and water, but that only does the trick after lots of washing, which needless to say, Max is not too fond of. I've also tried cutting the chunks of fur out that get matted together from the sap, but if it's on a spot that's sensitive and hard-to-reach (i.e. around his ears, eyes, etc.) I prefer not having to resort to scissors.
Thanks in advance to everyone:-)
