Holding feet

Unread post by milimi »

Anybody else having real difficulty holding the dog’s foot? All of my dogs so far (3) have fought me holding their feet. So much so that I’m lucky to get a solid 5 seconds of stillness. I’m mindful to hold in a position that dog should be comfortable in and I’ll even try changing a little bit to see if something works better but nothing seems to help. I’ve been working with bigger dogs (that’s what my friends and family have). The videos have dogs that are totally desensitized to grooming so I’m not really picking up on how to handle dogs that are fighting the process. Any suggestions?
