    Default Toe nail cutting

    Hi All,

    I've been having some major issues trimming Boris' nails lately as the last time I did it I accidentally hit his quick and he no longer trusts me with the clipper Now anytime I get the clippers out he runs and hides under the table and is extremely aggressive when I try and hold him down to quickly trim his nails.

    Any tips or methods for getting this done without too much fuss?

    Thanks

    Matt, Kelsey and Boris

    Yeah I will have to look into a groomer, but I worry about that as he will bite them in the process. He really hates getting his nails trimmed and I feel terrible cause it hasnt been a problem for the last 2 years, just recently since I hit the quick

    Try the groomers... He just might behave for them

    I do one at a time. He will let me clip one before he acts out. I usually try to get them when he is distracted like eating or chewing on a toy. Sleeping works also. I feel like a pretty mean mommy but he gets treats after.

    Yep I am a pussy admit it to all here , Like you I did that to one of My wonderful dogs years ago . I was know ( slightly off topic ) as MR MuM way back I was home taking care of My kids before it was looked upon as it is now , was even invited out to the MuM,s club for coffee after dropping the kids off at school did not go well NO I was not rude , but be surprised what they talk about not my cuppa expresso . I digress what i learned is do what ya can , My dogs go to the vet for that and a health check up , Odin needs a mussel to get the job done and sedatives . so Not My Payscale as was washing My kids in the tub as wee kids , never trust those sit up suction rings t6ake it from Me !
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
