Do this by holding the clippers near his feet and nails. Continue praising and treating for about 15 times before ending the session.
Now, when it's time to clip the dog's nails, they will be used to the clipper and the sound it makes.
Reasons Behind Aggression One of the main causes of a dog's aggressiveness is usually due to dog owners themselves.
On the dark nails where you can't see any pink to know where the live part of the nail starts, you can check the end of the nail.One trick to find where the quick of the nail is is to gently apply pressure with the nail trimmers where you think you should cut. If your dog yelps, jumps, or otherwise reacts to the light pressure, you are too close to the quick and need to move the clippers closer to the nail tip. Place a tiny piece of tissue paper tightly against the end of the nail and hold it for a few minutes. Depending on the breed and size of your dog, you'll need to clip its nails anywhere from once per week to once per month. If this does occur, have some clotting powder or solution to stop the bleeding. Once you're comfortable with the trimmer, place the main part of the tool in the palm of your hand while controlling the moveable part with your fingers.You should be able to see the small cutting blade that slides when you squeeze the handle.
