If your dogs are anything like mine, trips to the groomers are not high on their “to do” list. In fact, they hate it! Unlike a relaxing mani-pedi , our dogs can often find trips to the groomers to border on the traumatic.
Especially if the grooming is done at the vet. I know I certainly would have a harder time relaxing if I was getting my nails done at my doctors office. Of course we have to take care of our dogs cuticle needs one way or another, but many people do not realize that you can tend to your puppies paws all on your own.
That way you can be sure that your pooch can relax in a calm, familiar, loving atmosphere where it can feel safe.
Taking over your dog’s grooming is a great way to improve their lives, increase your connection with them and to save a few bucks while you are at it.
Here are a couple of pointers to make it a painless experience for everyone:
- The more you touch your dog’s paws the better.If they get used to it in general, it’s not so alarming when it’s showtime.
- Rest your dog (or as much of them as possible) in your lap when you’re getting ready to trim. Give them a little massage by rubbing the pads of their feet. Press on one of the toe pads to extend the claw.
- Press on one of the toe pads to extend the claw.
- Be sure to avoid the pink tissue (called the quick) within the nail, since it’s painful and startling to them when you trim too closely.
- If they really don’t enjoy it at first, you can even try trimming just one nail a day to get them used to the process slowly.
