So, let me ask again, are you willing to spend several weeks of daily training to get her to accept having her nails trimmed, or are you looking for something easier?I would teach her over time that it's okay, myself. If she gets nervous when you mess with her feet, take a couple weeks teaching her that touching her toes equals Good Happy Things. I used this kind ( on my old dog and this kind ( on my cats.

Catch her when she's happy, do some tummy rubs or pet her when she's sleepy. Originally posted by Sun Raven01: It's a valid question.

Before I spent 20 minutes typing out a step-by-step post on how to use classical and operant conditioning to train your dog to accept having her nails clipped, I wanted to know if you were really interested in training her, or if you just wanted some quick and easy suggestions on how to restrain her while you clipped the nails.

this allows you to gently tap the grinder against the toenails, which can be helpful if they're the type that constantly jerks their legs away.

you WILL come out of it covered in toenail-dust though.

Drugging your dog just to trim its nails seems a bit excessive to me.

I realize not everyone is as interested in dog behavior and the psychology of training as I am, which is why I asked if you were interested in training her, especially since your thread title indicated you were looking at medication as a solution, not training.

If I try and hold her down, she starts yelping like I've chopped her legs off.

I've clipped them before, and might have nipped her down to the pink, which is why she won't let me near her with the clippers any more. For those vets/vets-to-be out there, would it be reasonable to request some "doggy Valium" to calm her down so that I can get this done?

It got to the point where 2 of us had to hld her while the vet trimmed her nails.

My dog is probably a good 40-45 pounds, so I don't know if the hangman thing would work. She'd need at least 2 people to do the holding, also. I wonder if she'd let me try and file down her nails? we give our dog a motion sickness pill, and it knocks her out for car rides.
