Binti was 6 years old when I adopted her. She was not fond of her crate, but I left it open with a nice soft blanket in it, and would randomly put a treat in it a couple times each day for her to find. Before twoo long , she associated her crate with good things and she will nap in it of her own volition.
Let us see a picture of your new addition! And congratulations!!!!
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.
