If there is one thing that dogs hate — It’s going to the vet.
Although a little maintenance is less horrifying than a visit to the doctor, it can still be scary for a dog to see scissors, clippers or trimmers near them.
The poor animals will never understand we do these things for their own good.
Most dogs, mine included, detest getting their nails clipped. Think about it — why wouldn’t they? Nails on dogs are very sensitive, and having a sharp object cutting them is scary. It’s tricky to make them understand that this is for their own good and that everything will be fine.
If it’s not done properly, it can be extremely painful for them, which will traumatize the animal even more.
Spreading around the world
Kendal Peifer, from Minnesota, knows well that her lovely dog detests getting his nails cut. To solve this, her dad came up with an ingenious idea consisting of something as simple as a handbag, a pair of scissors and a pull-up bar.
