Hi JaCustomer,

In order to supply you with an informed answer, it is necessary for me to collect some additional information from you. When I receive your response or reply, it will likely take me between 30-45 minutes to type up my reply if I am still online when I receive notice that you replied. I hope you can be patient.

So is he aggressive when you try and cut the nails or hold his feet?

Or does he just urinate?

Does he urinate at other times?

What obedience training has he had?

Are you rural, suburb or urban area?
