Well, you have to gain their trust. They love butt scratches so use that to your advantage. Give them butt scratches and bacon bits, then while you have them there next to you........go for the nose!! Eventually, they will understand and be more willing to participate. Now, my Amber won't let me do anything with her paws, toenail trimming is absolutely impossible. She hates anyone to touch her toenails, they are black and we hit the quick a few times when she was young. Petsmart will do it for me but only a couple of people will do it because Amber becomes totally unglued at the sight of the clippers.......she becomes a complete and absolute lunatic. I am working with her to just touch the paws but its a battle. Use butt scratching to the fullest and get wipes they cannot smell.....that helps too. Good luck!
