I just did five of my dogs' nails yesterday. I chose neutral, because they are fine with it, unless I nick them, I nicked two yesterday. One of Ninja's and one of Heidi's. They were both ok with my finishing the rest of their nails.
I did Rush yesterday. And I thought that would be a problem becuase when he broke his nail off a the base, and it was at 90 degrees and we took three vet techs and me to hold him down while the cut the rest of it off. I thought that would be a bad experience. The nail did not grow back. No anesthetic. And they packed it with something they admitted burned, took a bunch of us to hold him down for that too.
But he was acutually fine with me cutting the remaining front nails. One of his back nails he was acting ellusive about. I figured maybe it was how I was making him stand, so I made him lie down, and got it that way. No problem.
None of them run and hide when I get the clippers or anything like that.
