I've been having tremendous difficulty with this. I have both Pedipaw (an electric device that's supposed to be gentle) and a regular clipper. The problem is that Chance won't let me go near her nails with any device! She jumps up and wants to get away. She's a very calm, cooperative, gentle dog. I think she's just very scared. I've tried doing this gradually--just introducing her to the Pedipaw device with it off. As soon as it's near her toes, she jumps up and wants to get away. Same with regular clippers. I spent a few days introducing the Pedipaw and then immediately rewarding (treat), then moving it away, then introducing and rewarding, etc. She just does NOT want any device near her toes. Should I just be more forceful and make sure she can't get up? Or should I get a tranquilizer for her? I don't know how I'd do that but I know my neighbor has to do that with her dog. Or just hire a professional? Thanks!
