If you're doing it at home I recommend the external version, unless you have a helper. Most dogs aren't fond of having a finger or two in places they shouldn't be and it can get dicey without a spotter.

The external method was what I was reading instructions for. I agree don't think I want to go with the internal way, I will leave that to the pro's if needed.
