By building a positive conditioned response to a particular implement and following a good desensitization plan, trainers can help even dogs who are fearful about nail care. Even better, trainers can coach owners through the process effectively, giving them the opportunity to create a lifetime of cooperative care. We'll cover why DS is often necessary and how to walk through the process effectively, by being mindful of body language and working at the dog's pace. We'll also cover nail and paw anatomy, so that even those most shy about nail care can become comfortable with it! Objectives - Gain an understanding of why nail care can be so difficult for some dogs - Learn why the +CER building process is so important to the process - Walk through a desensitization process, and be able to teach clients how to do the same - Gain an understanding of paw and nail anatomy and why nail maintenance is so important to dogs' health
