ABOUT CANINE NAIL CARE
Dogs and nail trims can be a tough combination. I created Nailed It: A Course in Canine Nail Care as a way to help both dogs and humans achieve nail care success at home. We also offer a separate lesson on using a scratch board to help folks get started if body handling, restraint or using a tool is too difficult. If you're here and you and your dog need nail care help, know that you are not alone! We've helped hundreds of dogs and people achieve nail care success.
It seems so simple, right? Trimming a dog's nails should be easy peasy. Turns out, there's a few reasons it's such a struggle. In our manuals, you'll learn about these reasons and how to overcome them. You'll gain confidence and your dog will become comfortable with the process. My dog Rocco is the inspiration behind this course, and you'll meet him along the way.
Our manuals lay out the steps to help you achieve nail care success and we show you how through video tutorials. You'll learn how to choose the best tool and be able to proceed at a pace that is comfortable for you and your dog. Thanks to my current dog, Hazel, I learned how to maintain dogs' nails in a way that is stress-free and fear-free.
Canine Nail Care Junkie
I know from personal experience that dogs and nail care aren't always a winning combination! My dog Rocco lived with nails that were too long for his whole life. I was ashamed and knew he had to be uncomfortable. Though I was never able to right that wrong, I committed to getting it right with my current dog, Hazel. And I took what I learned along the way and created resources to help dog owners all over the world be able to trim their dog's nails at home with no stress or fear.
I'm a certified dog trainer through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CPDT-KA) and the Academy for Dog Trainers.
