Fear Of Nail Cutting

Dear Cesar, My dog Honey will NOT let us cut her toe nails. She is petrified. How can we do this? She is a therapy dog for elderly people and needs her nails cut on a regular basis. She has some anxiety issues. They arose after her brother Bear passed away this summer. She saw it. Could this have caused her anxiety? Please help us. We need to be able to cut her nails and don’t know what to do. Our vet suggested drugging her. We tried this and she was sooo out of it. Help!!! Sincerely, Janine Thomas –

How To Bathe Your Dog

If you watch people bathing dogs in movies and TV shows, most of the time it seems like a joyous, fun-filled time for all involved.
