clipping toenails

marricgardensNovember 30, 2011

I have an australian shepherd who hates having her toenails touched so clipping her toenails is always a chore. We bought one of those clippers that vets use because we don't want to cut to much off, she's a bleeder. It takes two of us to do her. She's not aggressive, just doesn't like her toenails touched. I take her on the couch with me and try touching her feet and she's o.k. with that, then I give her a treat to reward her for letting me. Is there something else I could do to calm her down? She used to be the same about having her head touched when you petted her but she's getting better with that. Marg

I don't know how this appeared on the daylily forum, sorry. It was supposed to be on the Pets forum.

Ah, so that's not the name of your latest registration after all. I'm glad that's been cleared up! ;)

Marg, I have 5 shelties and have been handling dogs for years. If you send me an email I will send some info that might help.
