    from day 1 when we got the pups I would massage/check their paws and inbetween, also lift up lips and check teeth and gums, also have a play with their ears, lots of praise and happy associations with it all...I try to do similar actions to what a vet may do just so they are comfy with it and not freaked out next time the vet starts grabbing at places

    I did the same as Rebec with Batty.

    If he pulled away I didn't let his paw go, I waited until after he stops struggling, waited just a second more then praised for being settled.

    I also clip nails when he's sleeping. He doesn't bat an eyelid lol.

    Dora has the same problem.
    I havent clipped her for a while, might do it today. With clipping her nails, I hold her with one hand, clipper in the other, and mum is feeding her treats the second I touch her paws, the second I clip.
    Dora hates me touching her paws, so whenver I'm giving her affection, I make sure to touch her paws as well.
    Good advice was given, let us know how you go!
