So...what I do is I hold him while the groomer clips. He's heavy but I hold him with his legs dangling so he can't get any traction and try to squirm away. Works good for everybody, he still moans and groans like we are killing him but I think he does better with me holding him than he would by himself on the table. Good luck with your baby
    I wish I would have been told about it before we were picking him up so I could have offered to hold him. I think that would have solved the problem.

    Our vet always did it as part of the annual wellness check, and if you wanted it done during other visits it was $10, but now they ask and/or check if it is needed and just do them. I tried to do them myself, made it a few times, but once I hit the quick on the second round -- all bets were off and I started going to Petco the girls at ours are real good and take their time with the pups actually get them comfortable with them, before they cut/dermel

    I did the clicker training concept, cut one nail and give a treat etc, started off very slow but made progress. Then moved to a treat he way, and then after a paw.
    Now happy to report I say paw and he hands it to me for massage or nail cutting, he loves his front paws massaged.

    I have to take Vegas to Petsmart. for $11 they dremel his nails, It takes one to dremel and two to hold on to him. He HATES it. He has never once tried to bite though.

    I put cooper on his back. Then get him in my lap. Rub his belly and chest a little and then cut all of his nails. He doesn't love it but knows he isn't getting up until we are done. I do this once a week so he does pretty good.
