    Consent to Care: Trouble-Free Nail Trims

    In this course we will show you how to get trouble-free nail trims with your dog. By teaching them to consent we can build the trust needed for them to actively participate in what is often a very unpleasant task for both you and your dog. There is no reason for this to be a major chore.

There is no reason for nail trims to be a major chore! By teaching them to consent we can build the trust needed for them to actively participate in what is often a very unpleasant task for both you and your dog.

This mini-course will show you how to make nail trims less of a hassle and, if you put the time in, how to make them an easy, trust-building exercise with your dog. I will show you the equipment, talk about practical set up ideas, assessing your dog’s readiness and how to start. We’ll also discuss alternatives to the Dremel and how to know when your dog has had it with a Dremel manicure, whether it be in the moment or in general.
