👸😇 Nail Trimming the Diva 😇👸
Yes, I called her a Diva. She has all kinds of sass and spunk. Lol!! Kona has been struggling with getting her nails done. One very bad experience with a groomer sent her back miles. And it's been a slow process getting her back on track. Here's some things we (the family & I...group effort!!) have been doing to get her to this point...
🍑 Started by getting her used to us just touching and eventually holding her paws.
🍑 Introduced her to the Dremel tool.
➡️This was a process all in of itself as she didn't like the noise or vibration, so it became a constant part of her life. Used to pet her, on while driving, just anything to desensitize her to it.
🍑 Then we slowly tried one nail. Once the fuss stopped she was released.
🍑 Finally it was time to just show her it's not the end of the world. Take the emotions out of it and the babying. Clear communication, minimal talking, and follow thru. 💥💥And now you see a Corgi in the "give-up" phase. Still breathing heavy, not stoked about it, but DEALING with it. Which she needs. This is the final hump. I won't make her do all her paws at once yet. But she's quickly understanding this is happening and it's easier to just give in and get it over with. Lol!! After this weekend with me she's gonna have the nicest nails EVER! 😁
