Hi Doodle Fans,
Lets get real, we all avoid trimming our own dogs nails because it's difficult, we worry we will cause them pain and we either pay to have it down or we don't do it at all. Doing nothing with your dogs nails is not an option. I can not tell you how many dogs come to us and are limping and it's all because their nails need trimming. A dogs foot needs to hit solid on ground but when the nails get too long, the toes get splayed out and it's harmful to their feet. Keeping their nails trimmed is good for their over all wellness. If you are interested in joining this seminar please see the details at www.puppymanners.com/grouptraining.asp
About this seminar: Healthy Paws Seminar [Nail Trimming Made Easier]Trimming a dog's nails makes a lot of people nervous which can make a lot of dogs nervous. So many of us avoid it altogether or we often pay someone else to "do the deed" and we want to help take some of the pain out of trimming your dog's toenails. Our goal is to help you be more comfortable by sharing the tools available and the methods that will help you be more comfortable and have more confidence trimming dog's nails. While paying someone else to do the job is a fine alternative, rarely are the nails trimmed often enough or short enough. Many times just the tips of the nails are cut and much more could have been taken off. Educating yourself about your your dog's feet and the benefit of keeping his nails trimmed is so important. It's a necessary evil that needs to be addressed so your dog does not have to live with painful feet due to the lack of nail trimming.
The fear of cutting into the nail bed (the quick) causing some bleeding is the average dog owner's worst nightmare. So many dogs go to the vet or the groomer instead. But the truth is, even the professionals can cut the quick and cause the nail to bleed now and then. The difference between a pro nicking too far and a dog owner is that the pros don't worry about it. Dogs need to have their nails trimmed every 3 to 4 weeks. Some dogs, like some people, have nails that grow longer and faster so each dog is different. Dogs need to be handled differently depending on their fear level and we will help you with the different techniques we have with our life demonstrations. We've been trimming our own dogs and our clients' dogs' toenails for over 20 years and we want to pass the valuable tips and tricks that we have learned to you by offering this seminar.There will be hands-on practice as well as videos.
The goal of this seminar is to help build your confidence and take the fear out of this experience for you and for your dog. Being able to trim your dog's nails also saves you time and money as well but the real benefit is that this also builds trust in your dog once they realize you know what you are doing and are comfortable with this exercise in nail trimming. We've had old dogs come in limping and the owners don't know why. And the remedy was a simple nail trim. The dogs actually thank us when we make walking less painful with proper nail trims and they do appreciate it. And so will you when you understand the importance of keeping your dog's feet fit and healthy!After the seminar if you would like to book a private session for you and your dog feel free to talk to our instructors.Free tote bag for each student as well as go home tips for proper nail trimming.This is a one-day seminar.
