Here Goes Nothing
I unpacked the nail trimmer. Found some batteries. AA. Three of them. It doesn't come with batteries, but does come with three extra sanding drums.
I turned it on. The dog was gone.
I went and sat next to the dog on the floor. Rubbed him with the unit. Turned it on, he tolerated the massage. Then, he walked away.
Enough was enough.
Acclimatizing the Pet to the Unit
I still haven't gotten close to my pets nails, although I did grasp his foot.
So Far - Dog Says No
Trust me, if I ever get this accomplished there will be photos.
Not to worry.
Ugh. It took me until today to corner my dog in his kennel, and sit in front of the opening to use the unit on the claws.
The dog wasn't scared, but didn't want to participate. He would lay down, then sit up, the swirl sound. Then, he'd try to edge past me.
It was awkward. The claws sanded down almost immediately. Sanded claws smell funky. I'm not going to say that it smells as bad as burnt hair, but there is a definite odor. The dog licked his feet once I was done.
