I dremel my dogs' nails. It is easy and it is difficult to quick them so safer for me. In foster care I know that they clipped Muprhy's nails. So, I thought I would try that since he should be used to it. He was happily laying on me when I pulled them out. The second that the clippers touched his nail he FREAKED out! Wiggling and fighting and in complete panic mode. Over a couple of days I was lucky to get a couple of them clipped and of course we had a little party with lots of treats. When I was at my parents house last week recovering from knee surgery we decided to try the dremel. I held him in my lap, my mom fed him chicken and my dad quickly dremeled. He got a treat after every toe. He hardly fought at all. Got him home and tried doing it last night. He absolutely flipped out. I didn't even have it near is toe. I've gone back a step and just started treating him with it near him. Then once he'd walk to it, I turned it on and treated him for being near it on. Finally, today I was able to touch his paw with it off and treat like crazy when he didn't go into freaked out puppy mode. Any suggestions? I've never had a dog freak out so much. It worries me because he totally shuts down. I have to get his nails cut soon, they are getting very long.
