Posted 12/18/97



One of the most troublesome aspects of canine grooming is the process of trimming nails. First the dog gets upset. Then the owner gets upset. The end result is often long nails that only get trimmed at the veterinarian's office, thus giving the dog yet another reason to hate his annual physical.

While most breeds resist trimming, it seems that terriers are particularly sensitive and Norfolks can be among the most expressive in voicing their displeasure. While we can't promise a complete transformation of this well-ingrained character trait, here are some tips that may make the nail trimming process easier.
