We are fostering/probably adopting a new pup. Hes 4-6 years old (not really sure). About 30 lbs kind of looks like a whippet mix but who knows.
Anyways we took him to get his nails trimmed bc they were super long and he was a nightmare. Trying to jump off the table, trying to bite. We have a wonderful groomer but it took two people to get it done and it was rough. They did suggest we try clipping next time bc maybe the grinder is too much for him. I know he was just afraid and hes been an otherwise sweet dog, but it was a really bad experience for all involved.
Anyone dealt with this before? Any tips for helping him acclimate?
The family who gave him up said they didnt ever need to be trimmed so I doubt they ever did. But they were super long when we got him so I dont think its ok to totally skip it. We adopted our last dog when she was 8 and while she hated the groomer and would shake and try not to go, she would cooperate and deal with it once she was there.
