During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season who doesn’t like to take time to indulge in a relaxing mani-pedi? Probably many of your dogs do too! I don’t know about you, but I have a couple of dogs who couldn’t care less about getting their nails trimmed. But I also have a couple who turn into whirling dervishes and whose nails I can’t even see let alone trim! What should be a five-minute job can turn into an ugly marathon. Here’s some helpful advice on how to turn this into a much more pleasant and manageable task.
While the dog is sitting with you relaxing, just take his paws in your hand for just a second or two (one at a time). Praise him for being a good pup and go back to whatever you were doing.
