Step 1: What You Need
one (nervous looking) dog
Step 2: Position Dog
Depending on just how much your dog hates having his or her nails done will determine how much holding and cradling you will have to do.
In the case of my dog he must be cradled and have his paws held by me and my wife holds his paw too and does the trimming.
Step 3: Trim
Don't go to short or you will get the quick and hurt your friend.
*Don't forget the most important dewclaw.
Step 4: Praise Your Dog
*Show them the dremel (off) before and after so they can see that it is safe.
