My dog doesn't like having his claws clipped

Clipping claws is a normal part of animal husbandry but what do you do if your dog doesn't like having his claws clipped? This is a particular problem for retired Greyhounds because racing Greyhounds use their claws to grip the track. Retired Greyhounds, therefore, will often present with overly long claws and will need them gradually clipping back to ensure the 'quick' also gradually recedes.

In this video, Jo Blake (previous Operations Manager at the Greyhound Trust) offers some helpful advice on how to enable your dog to feel more comfortable with their claws being cared for.

Please bear in mind that this training may take several sessions over weeks or months, it may take a few sessions until you get to a 'clipping just one claw' session but keep it gradual and your claw clipping sessions will be smoother from then on!
