Desensitize and Counter-Condition Nail Trims
Dr. Colleen Koch demonstrates how to desensitize and counter-condition a dog to nail trimming. Desensitization and counterconditioning (DS/CC) helps change the pets perception of the process. This video illustrates the step-by-step process from introducing the nail trimmer to your pet, how to offer treats during training, and how to properly trim the nail.
