What's the best way to clip nails on a dog that....won't let you and/or hyper(without going to the vet)?

    A groomer?  I don't know any other way except to place the pup in my lap and hold him still with my legs and just clip the toenails.  I don't try and do 20 toenails at one time - just a few here and there as he is calm and sorta 1/2 asleep in my lap. 
  • Jim - 2012-12-01
    Well I tried to clip his nails but he won't let me. I tried to hold his paw and he backs off. He almost bit me and I think he senses that he will get hurt. I tried talking to him and my wife did too. we tried giving him a treat but still NO WAY BUDDY! I pray for the groomer.
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-12-01
    Will he let you file them - all you really need to do is take the real points off so he doesn't scrath you when jumping up.  Walking on the sidewalk will even do it.

    It takes two for my Bonnie's claws to get clipped. The groomer does the work while I hold her paws so that she can just barely touch the table top. Doing that keeps her mind on getting her feet under her and takes her attention off the clippers, which the groomer uses very quickly. Then she clips the long bunny feet Bonnie gets in winter, big, fluffy snow shoes on her delicate little paws. She doesn't like having her bunny feet clipped any more than having her claws clipped.

    All IS good now. My wife took him over to her sisters place (walked the dog there...less than a half a mile). She clipped them. It took both of them but it got the job done. My wife said he pulled her all the way going there, so he knew where he wanted to go. She has 5 dogs, 4 long haired chihushuas (our dogs mother,father, and his brothers so he has one heck of a time when he goes there. :) OH, the device we tried to use was 'Pedi-Paws.'
  • Mary Goodwill - 2013-03-24
    This method works well for me...I wrap her in a small blanket all legs except the one I am clipping. It limits her squirming. If there is someone else around I have them hold her also which is a help.

    I have had dogs of all sizes. Nail trimming can be a challenge. Telling you to start early in life is probably too late for some of you, but you can get a fabric muzzle that fits comfortably on them and do it to keep from getting bitten. The worst thing is after someone has accidentally cut into the quick. They have long memories. I know it sounds horrible, but I had a rescue Doberman that we had to give a sedative to do her nails. She was the best dog I could have ever had but just wouldn't let me do her nails and the vet was scared to do it without doing something. I play with the babies feet from the time they are born, massaging them with lotion and getting them used to the touch of a human hand on their feet. Then they don't mind as much. Don't cut them too short. I just cut them back far enough that they don't disfigure the way the feet touch the floor. My babies sleep on my bed. I do it right there a little at a time - a few here and there as needed - so they are always willing to let me do what I want to do. And it is best after a bath when the nails are soft.

    The source of this photo is Wiki Commons. If you want to contact the author, try going to that site. It appears that this photo was uploaded in 2007 though, so I am not sure how much luck you will have proving this is your dog?

Our Mastiff is a gentle giant and I highly recommend it for a pet. He is 10 years old and is getting to be very old. If you get an english Mastiff I suggest You have a vet take a look at his eyes and hips for cataracts and hip dysplasia. If my Mastiff gets sores on his legs what do you recommend we do to take care of his legs.

    WOW  hard to know.  Why sores - I think I  would just ask the vet.  Is something itching him so he is chewing on his legs?  Does he have a dry skin or any skin condition?  Could he possibly be allergic to something?  It is like if one of us humans gets a sore - what caused it and then you can treat it.  Possibly (and i hope) that yours never does get sores.

    my mastiff is 7 and he also has a sore on his back leg that will not heal. I have been putting Vaseline and antibiotic ointment on it with no luck. he is also chewing on his paws and legs and is losing hair. I think he is allergic to the carpet freshener I used to help with the odor he leaves in living room.
  • Brenda - 2013-07-14
    We use Desitin (a baby cream with fish oil) for human and animal sores. It's about the best product I know about for sores. I think that if an animal can reach to lick it, you should try to cover it.

  Scooter was adopted from Saving Grace in Wake Forest Raleigh NC on / or about April 2008.  Scooter was found wandering down the highway near Wake Forest.  If this is your dog, you are definitely missing her.  She has been the smartest dog we have ever had.  We believe she is part Beauceron/ Shepherd.

She already had lots of training or she was extremely smart.  Best guard dog and friend we have ever had.

    Ive not often seen a photo of a dog where it is apparent how smart she is and what a great companion she would be. Cheers to Scooter!
  • Clarice Brough - 2013-06-09
    What a cutie!... Scooter's not my dog, but I sure with he was, he looks so great and sounds like a very cool dog to have.

My Chorky or YoWawa as a friend calls him is named Chippy. He is 4 lbs. ,black with tan markings on his face, legs, chest and underside of his tail. He is almost 12 years old. He is smart, playful and my Buddy! Got him as a puppy from a neighbor who had a Chihuahua who was unintentionally bred with the other neighbors Yorky! She had 3 pups . I never knew there was such a breed until I found the info online!

    Sounds like a really cute little dog! The amazing thing is that all dog breeds are the same species, so all those incredible types of dogs we see, they are all the result of interbreeding:)

You are going to love your vizsla puppy! Vizslas are sensitive, very smart dogs. Loves people and company! They do need a lots of walk! Please, lazy people do not buy them, they are going to go nuts inside a small apartment! Running, hunting, investigating is in their blood, they need to burn the energy like a 5 year old toddler!:) If you see your vizsla's rib, please, give some REAL food!:) of course, who else then a hungarian vizsla lover!:)

I want to get a Rottweiler but I am afraid of how much it sheds and if I train it as a guard dog will it attack non bad people?!?!

    A Rottweiller really doesn't shed a lot and its hair is very very short.  Easy to keep clean without odor.  However, they are a little stubborn when it comes to training.  Treats are great and  playing/training is good.  Example you are both running inthe yard and you yell 'STOP' and you both 'STOP' or 'SIT' and you both 'SIT' because as pups they have a big amount of energy.  You don't have to train a Rottweiller to be a guard.  The Rottweiller will love you, your family, people you allow in your home etc.  They should be well socialized to be around all people with you.  Take them to town and walk around, let people pet him etc.  The more socialized the better.  As for guard - anyone who does not know your pup - is not going to go near your pup just cuz Rottweiller so automatically a guard dog.  They also know what is their territory and will stand guard.  But socialize him well to as many people as possible.

    I have a 5 months old male rottweiler with certificate, but his hair is somewhat thick and curly, base from what i read, their hair should be short and straight.. any comments on this? what should be the average height of male puppy at 5 months, mine is 17 kgs now. Thanks
  • Clarice Brough - 2013-06-18
    I think their coat can be 'wavy' looking, also  on size and height at 5 months, here's a  Rottweiler Growth Chart, enjoy:)
