Hmmmmm, my methods are slightly different.

With Draven I have to call him onto the couch, grab all 4 paws and headbutt his stomach to knock him over. Then I keep my elbow on him as I grab a paw, tell him to knock it off and clip his nails. I am always successful.

With Sinister I have to call him over to the couch, tell him to "down" and then I grab his paw and right before I go to clip a nail, he pulls his paw away from me and I have to say "come on!" and grab his paw again and hold onto it for dear life so he doesn't yank it away again. I am always successful.

Sinister ~ black male GSD 3.11.09
Draven ~ male Dalmatian 6.30.13
