Over the past two months, I’ve been training my dogs to deal with the dremmel. Fortunately, because I’ve tortured them so much as puppies they are pretty good about letting me do their nails. Cynthia had a great tip to use Squeeze Cheese but I didn’t have to resort to that.
The only one who REALLY gave me a hard time was Qor. Shel had to feed feed feed her treats while I did each nail. Qay let me do one nail and then I could treat her… Targ.. well he just rolls over and lets me have my way with him.. I get a while foot done before he starts looking for some goodies.
I’ve started doing their nails every Sunday.. they really are monster nails. . They don’t grow that fast anymore but since I got a little lazy with the Guillotine clippers (because it was REALLY hard for me to get through them without pinching them) their nails need to be worked back a little at a time. So new routine.. nail torture and THEN we get our Sunday Marrow Bones
**insert holy sounding choir here**
Have you ever smelled hot nails… ew… and the powdery dust gets everywhere.. my glasses are covered.. and since I hold their paws on my lap.. my legs get covered..
It’s stinky.. and it’s a smell that clings even after two hand washings…. with my Thieves soap even!
