Special Event! Sunday, March 25, 2PM
Does the thought of trimming your pet’s nails make you want to find a bottle of wine? This is the session for you!

JoAnna Sidote of Connecting Spirits Animal Training will be covering how to approach nail trims and get your dog on their way to being calm for the experience.

Nail health affects their posture and therefore their mobility. Nails that click on your floors are too long. We want to help you trim them at home between grooms so your pet can be comfortable and at ease.

After we get your dog/cat ready to let you trim, we will be holding a future session to talk about the correct way to do the actual trims.

Please DO NOT BRING PETS for this session, a demo dog will be at class and we may work on a store kitty : ) Please bring a camp chair with you if you have one, as seating is limited.

This session is free to the public.


Dogs: Nail care is very important. If dogs are not walked on hard ground, their nails tend to grow quickly. If their nails grow too long, it can lead to sprung toes in athletic breed and turned out toes in severe cases. Also, ingrown nails, especially dew claws (the nails at the sides of the front and sometimes back paws) need to be checked regularly by you as they do not get pared back when your dog is walking. Keeping nails short and blunt, often prevent injuries and splitting, bleeding nails, including subsequent expensive emergency room visits. We can clip your dog’s nails for just $10 and show you how to do it if you want to maintain their nail health on your own in the future.

Does your dog growl and bite when you try to do nail trims at home? This short video by Dr. Sophia Yin gives you step by step instructions to make nail trims a positive experience for even the most difficult dog.

Another helpful video to train your pet for trims.

Here is another video that will cover the angle to do your nail trims at home.


Cats: Cat nails can be very sharp as you know. We can trim their front & back claws for you to reduce incidences of scratching and damage. Claws are an important part of a cat’s anatomy and we do not recommend de-clawing. Cats shed their nails and utilize their pads and scratching behavior to “mark” their territory. Providing scratching posts and learning how to train them are very important for your cat’s health. Please read about declawing before you think about having this surgery done – it is outlawed in 25 countries and is considered to be cruel. Only $10 for a nail trim at the shop. We will be happy to show you how to trim your cat’s nails – it can be very simple!
