It seems like I’ve read every post about nail clipping but we are still not making a whole lot of progress. Bella is going on 6 months now. Grooming in general isn’t an issue. She also lets me handle her paws and touch her nails. I do that every day to get her used to it. We touch her paws with the clippers and she’s fine with that. Things change when we actually proceed to clip. The fact that her nails are predominantly black is not helping. Today my husband held her and and the clippers. I tried to feed her treats but she just ignored them. She kept squirming and even nipped at him. We stopped that unacceptable behavior and got her to calm down again. My husband cut a couple of nails, we praised her and decided to give it a rest because she was panting and just stressed. As soon as he set her down she went to her crate and didn’t want anything to do with us for 5 minutes. She came back out but is still sulking as I type, lol. I don’t know if we are doing something wrong or if we’re doing it right and just need more patience. But such drama over a couple of nails seems ridiculous. Bella has never tasted cheese or peanut butter. Should I try a new treat like that for nail clipping? I need to find a way to get and keep her distracted. She’s so sweet in general except for this one issue.
