This is what we use.

I guess it didn't matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.

Luckily, he is a short hair so excess hair/shedding isn't an issue.

An example of a vet scam:





"no way to do it at home. YOu can only use a CHEW TOY"

guy never mentioned the flathead screwdriver or doggie dental scaler.

vets = scam.

Cesar Milan says trimming them after a good swim when they're all spent and relaxed is a good method. Plus when their nails are wet, its softer and easier to clip.

Otherwise, use a sling.

if you walk your dog enough you never need to trim its nails.

around 15-30 min. is enough for no nail trimming.

I'm loving the sling idea. It's difficult to get him to swim for any period of time because he hates being in water deeper than he can stand in. We just got him a PFD though, so hopefully it will help with that.

We also got him one of these:

We noticed an immediate change in his energy when we first put it on him. In fact, we took it off then put it back on just to be sure. If anybody has a dog with social anxiety, I absolutely recommend a Thunder Shirt.

Winter aside, he walks that much every day, or more, and his nails still get super sharp. 40 degrees and sunny is basically his limit. Any colder than that and after 30 seconds he is shaking like Dana White trying to eat a hot dog.

lol @ thundershirt. americans are actually pretty innovative in many respects.

ThunderShirt's patented design applies a gentle, constant pressure that has a dramatic calming effect for over 80% of dogs.

Most effective anxiety solution as voted by veterinarians

so basically it gets rid of anxiety by giving the dog a mild bear hug?
