I find that tiring them out can make nail trimming much easier. We adopted my jrt at 4 mos. & from the get go, I always played with his paws and letting the clipper sit by him helped but he still hates getting his nails trimmed. I find that taking him for a long walk makes him more accommodating. Sometimes I get all 4 paws done in a sitting, sometimes only a nail or two, but eventually they get done.

With my golden, we did the same thing but she still hates it. Luckily she is a good sleeper & I can get the fur between her pads & nails trimmed while she naps. Its like going to the spa for her, falling asleep & waking all beautiful lol
