Re: Trimming Nails
I am so glad I am getting the pups used to this for their future homes. They are now at teh point where they will lay quietly in my arms, awake and let us clip all their nails in a minute or two. If they squirm a firm "Settle" is all it takes to quiet them to finish the job. Then they get their treat which they of course go nuts for.
To answer your questions for a pup under 10 months old I do it once a week. After that once a month. What I would do in your situation is conintrate on clipping just one nail a day if possible. Have a good toy and get her busy with playing with it. Or her favorite treat. Or give her a kong to lick out of with cheese or peanut butter while you clip the nail. They huge rewards. Just an idea.
