    Although I am one who strives to learn new ways that can help my furry family members, nail trimming was something I thought I had down. I know too long nails can catch on carpets, break on concrete and just not let your pooch's paws hit the ground right. None of my BIG dogs have ever truly enjoyed a nail trim but most have grown to tolerate it. Well, after taking Dr. Buzby's Nail Trimming Course, I see why and have learned so much more! Dogs grow to trust us, so over time, mine have let me snip away, but after watching the videos in this course, I see the errors in the technique I was once taught and how the clippers once used actually crushed the nail. Dr. Buzby's trimmers are sharp and easy to use, so they help me make a clean sliver of a snip, taking just a little at a time. This training is phenomenal and is all about making nail trims a truly PAWSitive experience for your pet - from the different positions Dr. Buzby shows are most comfy for you dog to be in, to the happy voice and yummy treats she suggests. I am so excited that through this quick and easy online course, I've learned a truly innovative way to make my best pals healthier and happier! Healthier, from a nail trim? YES! Dr. Buzby not only teaches you THE WHAT but she also clearly explains THE WHY in a way that makes total sense. Her fun delivery and reasoning actually makes you want to rush over to your best buddy and give it a try with confidence, even if you must tackle dark nails or tiny ones on a squirming pup! This course has given me the confidence to keep my dogs' nails short so that none of them ever feels like a "goat on a rock!" Ha Ha! Guess you'll have to take the course to figure out that reference :) Change you dog's life and lower your stress level by learning this easy and effective way to do nail trims FURever more!

    As a long-time dog owner, I thought I was cutting my dog’s nails correctly, even though I occasionally snag their quick. After taking the course with Dr. Buzby, I realized there were ways I could improve my nail trimming, making it a more enjoyable experience for my dogs. The first time I trimmed their nails after the class, I was able to cut them the shortest they’ve ever been, without cutting the quick. Both dogs were relaxed and I noticed a difference in the older dog’s posture immediately following her trim. Her ToeGrips were easier to place on her nails and they look to be more effective now that the nails are shorter. - B. Nowell

    Dr. Buzby's course is necessary in your life! I'm an experienced veterinary technician and I took this course with my husband because with 3 dogs, sometimes I need help with nail trimming. When we finished, he did a nail trim on our greyhound - who's got black nails - no fear for any of us. What a life saver! Thank you Dr. Buzby!
