First nail trimmed
Nail trimming using the bucket game. Introducing the clippers and then actually trimming one nail. I am more nervous using them than he is! Great session. We kept it short and only did one nail - the rules of this bucket game are that he needs to look at the bucket to signal it's ok to carry on. As soon as he looks away, everything must stop. This game gives choice and control to dogs nervous of various procedures or handling, building their confidence through gradual desensitisation.
