Cooper is such a big baby when it comes to trimming his nails. I try and brush him every day, he is used to that. He is also getting accustomed to shaking before coming back in the house. I put a few treats in my pocket, hide his clippers in my other pocket and come out with his brush. I thought if I have him go around the tree so he has very little slack in his zip line it would be easy to clip him but no, managed to get three of this front claws trimmed but got a new large bruise on my right leg.
