Question by Stephanie: How do you get your dog to allow you to cut their nails?
ok so my dog who is a mini dachshund wont let me cut her nails no matter what i do…i tried the treat trick for like 6 months and i didnt get anywhere closer to being able to cut her nails as soon as i would get the nail trimmer anywhere near her paw she would cry or bite…i have had to have my little brother hold her while i cut her nails and now she wont let me go anywhere near her nails and when i do she starts crying…like really crying so does this hurt her or something?? i dont understand and her nails are getting way way too long and they need cut bad and she wont let me…HELP please!!! and if you are gonna get on here and just tell me how its all my fault and blah blah blah then please dont post because i have tried other methods…THEY DONT WORK!! and i have also read a lot about ppl having problems with this type of dog and grooming so idk…any suggestions?

Get someone to hold her for you and don’t take any if ands or buts about it from her. Eventually she may not need to be held, and she will put up less of a fight if you do no give into to her. But many dogs never get to the stage of holding out their paws for you to cut their nails without some help.
