Hi there! My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question.

When I get this question in real life, I always suggest having the nails trimmed at a groomer!

I live in MN and groomers around here charge about $10 - $20 to cut the nails for owners who aren't able to.

It's less expensive than the vet, plus you don't have to deal with the frustration of fighting with your dog.

I hope this helps.

I have been to three groomers and they have not been able to do it

Then perhaps your only alternative option is going to be asking your vet for some significant sedation so that you can take the fight out of him. Medications such as Acepromazine or Clomicalm can really help.
