Cutting you dog's nails can turn into quite a struggle, but with the proper tools and technique your dog won't mind nail trimming day. Learn how the members at DogForums.com are clipping their dog's nails... - Dave|Xoxide
When we got our dog, the previous owner let us know that he does not do well at a groomer, vet...
Therefore he has never had his nails cut. I decided to take him into a pet place just to see what it would cost. The lady offered to do it for free. He would not let her anywhere near him, growling and snapping. after a while she was able to pet him but that was all.
I decided not to add anymore stress then what he was under so we left.
Now the previous owner did have a vet clinic that are familiar with him but it is a far drive for a nail trim. She has said he got so nervous once he popped a blood vessel in his eye.
I want to try to take him in and get him muzzled first but I dont want to add that stress to him. I have heard about getting them something to knock them out first but the point is no one can touch him other then me or my boyfriend.
I wont cut his nails cuz I am to afraid. any suggestions?
