To start things off here is my lovely Kiley, sad that I am not sharing my breakfast with her. She is a 3 y.o. rescue, we have had since she was a pup. She definitely has some pit in her, and I'm pretty sure she has some ridgeback in her as well.
The one issue I've always had with her is trimming her nails. I have given her baths, eye drops, ear drops, etc. and never had a problem, but I can't for the life of me get her to let me trim her nails. She's great with people and other dogs, but the nails do some damage to our hard wood floors and are a pain when she decides to be an ass and jump up on a guest. Aside from taking her to the vet and having her put under I haven't found any trick to get the job done. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
