I have had dogs all my life and have always clipped their nails myself. Bulldogs are the first ones, that I have to take to the Veterinarian to have their nails clipped.He has help, but not needed sed. I have no help to hold them-but still don't know if I could get it done. They do not try to bite-but wiggle and pull so much. Maybe, if nails are real bad-your vet might have to sedate and trim? IF he is a bully vet.........others may have a better suggestion.
