No Flo Jo Nails on the dogs!!!!!   Here is a good article I found on how to clip easier!!!!





Nail clipping can be easier
Proper training can reduce the stress    by Vicki DeGruy

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q:We have a large dog and when we try to clip his nails, he becomes very upset and tries to bite. We've tried to give treats, give lots of praise and make it a pleasant experience but it doesn't help. A friend of mine gives her dogs a tranquilizer when she wants to cut their nails and I've been thinking about trying that, too. Do you have any ideas?
A: Since individual dogs vary a great deal in their reactions to tranquilizers, I'm not in favor of their use at home without the direct supervision of a veterinarian. Few dogs enjoy nail cutting but most, with training, will learn to allow their nails to be cut without a major struggle.

Start out with a sharp nail clipper and a helper whose pockets have been filled with extra-special treats. Bits of hot dog or shredded cheese work well! Most people use the single-bladed
