Hi John! My Binti will only consent to have her nails ground and only with treats (she gets one per paw.) She hated it at first but once we had the routine established, she settles right into it. The only thing I would say about using the grinder is keep pausing to feel the claw. I once had a "groomer" who was in a hurry hold the grinder to Binti's claw too long and the friction built up heat which burned her enough to make her yip. We started doing it at home after that.0_1609705288646_1Binti orchids1.jpg
Hi from MI

Hello everyone, my name is Melody I live in Ann Arbor MI with my partner of 5 years Joan my 3 Basenji's and her 3 Beagles.
We have one of each raised from puppies and the other 4 are adopted rescues. This is what we have decided to do, adopt the older ones that have less chance of getting homes and let them live out their lives in style!
I'm a dog groomer and groom out of my home three afternoons a week. I spend my days studying and training our dogs. We love camping, swimming and hiking!
I'm interested in getting Sukeena into lure coursing and would love to meet someone in or near MI that does it so I could tag along and check it out!
I'll post pics soon, great forum!
