The girls were due for a nail trim so I figured I'd share a photo of how I do Zoe's front nails. She's been trained to do an upside down settle in my lap and I give her an empty tub of peanut butter (the safe kind with no xylitol). Then when I'm done with her front ones, I let her get up and clip the back ones while she's standing. She's really good about it and she loves getting some snuggles between paws!
Phoenix does not like nail trims and thinks she's being tortured. I've been trying to work on it but I won't allow their nails to get long so I haven't gotten very far with trying to counter condition it. Mostly with Phoenix we just clip them as quickly as possible and have a treat party after it's over.
I'm hoping to eventually introduce the dremel back in but they both hate it and I need a new one.
How are your dogs with their nail trims?
