Nail Clipping

Post  runarabbit on Sat Nov 20, 2010 1:03 am


I often see post on Dachshunds that are difficult when it comes to clipping nails.

If you order a muzzle like this one from petedge, it does make the job a little easier.

also, if by any chance you have another individual around that can hold the scruff of the neck while you clip with the muzzle on this will help make the job a lot easier and less stressful on all parties. Remember to praise all the way through the session and after Smile constantly encouraging and loving. The experience should not be tramatic (but yes, it can be) the muzzle is just for your protection and the kind words are to help create a positive experience Smile. The first couple of times may be an ordeal, but some get use to the method and learn to except it. This really helps if you can do it weekly.

I clip nails all the time & have one boy that I have to muzzle each time. He now readily accepts the muzzle and lets me clip and it's done. I don't trust him without it. But, once the muzzle is off I do get kisses and not fangs Smile I'll have to video him one day Smile he's like a mini Cujo during a nail session Smile

Share your nail clipping experiences with us and maybe we can figure out which methods are easier, faster, or in a difficult situation just gets the job done Smile

I guess I have the odd ball dogs. Mine are great. They will either stand or lay on their backs in my lap and never fight a bit. And I dremmel only.

I dremel too, and have no problems with the adults. A few little wiggles here and there, but nothing major. It did require some patience and training at the beginning, but now they tolerate it well as long as there's a Pupperoni treat at the end of the torture Laughing

Now the puppies are a whole 'nother story. We're in the patience and training stage, so we get a touch to the nail, and a piece of cheese to the mouth. It takes forever, but they're getting better. I really should be doing this every other day, but I just haven't had time lately, so it's been once a week.

We don't Dremmel, though maybe I should try that, hmmm...

But mine actually do great as long as they are on the grooming table. It's like they know when they are up there, then I mean business, since if they're up there then they get it all, nails clipped, paws trimmed, ears, the works lol. If I try to do it in my lap though, they squirm and want to go play.
