Answer

Hi Ann,
We do have people come in and dog nail trimmings and chips for us; please check our event calendar for upcoming nail trim events: http://chuckanddons.com/events/

As far as pointers for puppies here is some tips from ASPA:
Helping Dogs with Sensitive Feet
Some dogs don’t like to have their feet touched, so it’s always a good idea to get your dog used to it before you attempt to clip his nails—ideally, this should start when he’s a pup. Rub your hand up and down the leg and then gently press each individual toe, and be sure to give her lots of praise and treats! Within a week or two of daily foot massage, your dog should feel more comfortable with a nail trim.
Also, before beginning a pup pedicure, tire your dog out with some vigorous exercise and enlist an assistant to help you hold her down.

Looking to purchase a Furminator Brush for my dogs. Are there different ones to choose from? Also, what are the prices for them?? Do they ever go on sale???

Answer

Sharyl,

 Furminators are a great grooming tool!  As a company we carry the long hair shedding tools in three widths, Small ($38.29), Medium ($47.19), and Large ($55.99)(August 2015).  They typically don’t go on sale, but you could watch for a coupon or use your quarterly rebate to purchase one.  Availability may vary by store, so check with your local  Chuck & Don’s to ensure the size you are looking for is in stock.

 

Thanks for your question!

What can I do to ease the anxiety my dog has about grooming?


Question

I have a one year old yorkie. He’s a very sweet boy but will not let a scissors or clippers anywhere near him. Any suggestions on how I can get him groomed?

Answer

Hi Hilary,

Thanks for contacting me regarding your pet. If you are having a problem grooming your dog I would suggest a couple of things:

1. You could bring him to a groomer to have them try and groom him, sometimes a groomer is able to get the job done easier than you can and then you can work with him afterwards when he knows what is happening. Two of our stores offer grooming services Elk River and Mahtomedi.

2. You can also start slowly just a little trim on one foot and that’s it for the day. Do a little more each day so he doesn’t get overwhelmed.

3. You can try grooming him off the ground on a table. Sometimes pets behave better when they are up higher.

Grooming can take time to get use to so go slowly and he will get used to being groomed.
