So after finding her fave treat, Beggin Strips, we started slowly doing them with the strips. I'd start with just taking a teeny microscopic sliver off, then a treat and so on.

Well, today, I said you wanna get your toenails done!? Well, she starts running around all excited and looking at the top of the fridge where I keep the Beggin Strips!! I was sooo happy, so I grab a couple and the clippers and sit down, well, bam there's a paw in my lap, no asking, no begging, no fighting or even flinching. Less than 5 minutes and nails are done! Such a nice change!
That's fantastic!!!
