well just had my first shot at cutting enzo's nails, we had learned how ot do that about to obdience classes ago ( not in the class, but they broke it down, step by step) and it acutally was just as easy as they said. i just sat out on the deck with cut up pieces of hot dog ( a "super reward" for him, which is the type of reward we were told to use) and i was just going to alot us 10- 15 mins, so it wouldnt stress him to much, but i was surprised, i actaully got all of his nails done in 10 minutes, and i thought it would be hard :laughing: haha :)

:highfive: good job

Just in case you cut a quick & don't have steptic powder - you can make a paste of flour & water & apply to the nail hold a paper towel with light pressure until the bleeding stops.
