breakthrough :)....

for the first time grooming, Gibbs sat on the table and let me clip his nails
I usually have to wrap him in a towel and pull one foot out at a time and it takes about 20 minutes to do his feet!
Probie has never been a problem, so maybe Gibbs finally realized how easy it could be if he just sat there and took it

Congrats!!!

Lizzie goes NUTS when I try and clip hers. Over the last 2 days I have clipped 7 and unfortunately today I cut the quick. I will try the towel trick.

Congratulations, Susan! That is quite a feat. I sure wish our two would behave for it but they both fight during the whole grooming process. We need to try the towel trick!

the towel trick did work! just swaddle them like a baby and then pull one foot out at a time. no flopping and squirming

yay! congratulations, that is HUGE!!!
Tillie used to be great about her nails ... BUT she has ONE black nail.. and I cut the quick. 3 times over the course of 3 nail trims... and that was IT she had HAD it!
It has taken her months to let me even do the other nails.... and she will NOT let me near the black one... I don't blame her! LOL
