restraint of aggressive dog/follow-up soluction
I posted a month ago on how to restrain an aggressive dog for nail clipping.
Some said to train him to accept it. Don't think this blind dog would be amenable (sp?) to training for this.
Well,it took some brain-storming but this is how it can be done.
Tie your dog with a leash to a solid object. Collar should be a martingale type so he can't slip out of it but choking is minimal to moderate. This is a quick procedure.
Then get a beach towel and wrap it around the dogs head. Must be a large, loose towel so it's easy to rewrap if the dog comes out of it and loose enough so there will be air in the towel but still covers the head.. Also, if he bites, he'll bite towel. One person holds his head and keeps the towel on.
Then the other person clips the nails while this restraint is going on.
After this stressful event, let the dog relax for a few minutes and then give him his favorite treat.
Great idea, if i do say so meself!
