Why do Dogs Hate Nail Trims?
When it comes to trimming dog nails, many dog owners are intimidated up to a point of bringing their dogs to their veterinarian or dog groomer just to avoid this annoying procedure. Most owners seem to be concerned about hurting their dog or not being able to do a good job. They also fear that their dogs will not be able to sit nicely for the procedure or worse struggle, causing the procedure to become unsafe.
Not to mention, the risk of over trimming the nails causing extensive bleeding. Just one bad experience as such may leave a bad stigma for any future nail trims. Dogs have an area in their nails called a "quick". This is a point over which you do not want to cut. Quicks may not be clearly visible in dogs with dark nails or if you are in a dark room. Fortunately should that instance occur, the bleeding can be stopped effectively by packing the affected nail with some flour. The flour will stop the bleeding and allow the blood to clot.
Many dogs interestingly, dislike the clipping noise produced by the clippers. According to applied animal behaviorist, Patricia McConnell in her article 'The Nail Wars", indeed many dogs start accepting nail trims better once they become deaf! This because they have learned to associate the sound with something unpleasant. Not to mention, most dogs do not like to feel restrained as they often feel trapped.
