    So, you throw your hands up in frustration when it comes to trimming your dog's nails...

    We know how overwhelming it can feel when you take out the trimmer and feel like you are in a wrestling match with your dog (and you are losing) Let's fix that!

    If you're on this page, I'm guessing your dog is struggling with having its nails done.

    Unfortunately, many dog owners do not have the advantage of getting their dogs as young puppies. They have missed out on all those early months of counter-conditioning their pups to accept physical touch around the feet, and many dogs have years of practiced terrible behavior around their nails/grooming. Long nails are not only unappealing, but they cause physical discomfort to dogs. Long nails can throw off a dog's stride and create a host of physiological issues. This is why we stress nail maintenance so much. It's not just for vanity purposes, but its necessary for the health and well being of the dog, too. 

    But you CAN have a dog that accepts nail trims...

    There is a way to actually stop the thrashing, growling and biting that often comes with nail trims. Although we are not groomers, we have trained enough dogs that absolutely need their nails cut while they are in our care. We teach every single dog that comes through our training program how to accept nail trimming because its such a vital part of the dog's health. We also know it's a big tell in the relationship a dog has with its owner. A dog that fights nail trims will most likely fight a lot of other things, too. It's usually all connected to the overall behavior of the dog. 

    If you're ready to finally stop sedating your dog 3-6 times per year just for basic nail upkeep, then this course is for you. We show you the exact process we use to take dogs from out of control to fully accepting the dremel and clippers. 

    This process can be invasive at times, but we know that working a dog through a moment of discomfort will help it cope with so many other things in life. You will see the dog in the video make major progress in just 3 sessions. 


    What you get:

    With this course, you will receive my step-by-step video training on how to successfully trim your dog's nails. It covers everything you need to know from how to stop the out-of-control-behavior, to getting the dog to accept grooming and remain calm for the duration of it. 

    We have used these methods of thousands of dogs who were previously being drugged or completely sedated for their nail trims. We don't want you or your dog to go through the stress of multiple vet visits just for nails ever again. You can turn nail trimming into a simple at home protocol that can be done in minutes by following this course.

    -How to choose and fit a prong collar video -$50 value

    Meet Your Instructor

    Hi, my name is Jeff Gellman, owner of Solid K9 Training. I've been training dogs for over twenty years, and I also hold dog training seminars around the world. Throughout my career, I have worked with tens of thousands of dogs and humans, and I know firsthand how lack of training can affect the quality of life for both ends of the leash. Between my free social media content, virtual one-on-one work, seminars, and in-person training, I have kept countless dogs in their homes who were on their last chance. 

    I have always wanted to find a way to help EVEN more families and their dogs. There is such a need for dog training that works, and so I created this course. My Green to Graduate series addresses one of the most common pain points I see people struggling with- lack of training overall! So many folks are struggling to get their dogs to do the basics, so I wanted to create a course that truly covers it all.

    This simple and easy-to-follow video series will get you on the path to better walks, better obedience, and a better lifestyle with your pet for the long run. You'll finally be able to live life with your dog exactly as you imagined, and the best part is, you'll be there in 4 weeks or less.

    FAQ - Am I in the right place? Can you really help me? etc

    I'm sure you've got questions. Here are the answers to many of the most common questions we get asked.

    Q: Will my dog eventually enjoy getting its nails done?

    A: Our goal is for the dog to accept nail trims without biting or scratching or flailing around. Whether the dog enjoys the nail trims or not, we cannot be sure. But your dog will be able to hold still while the procedure takes place. 

    Q: Do I have to use a prong collar? A: You can use any collar/leash combo you like for this process.

    Q: My dog is so badly behaved, we've been kicked out of groomers and vet offices! Is this still right for me?

    A: We have worked with hundreds, if not thousands, of dogs who have been kicked out of facilities for their behavior around nail trimming, and we are able to make incredible progress with them. This course is for EVERY dog that struggles with nail upkeep. 

    What if my dog has NEVER been able to get its nails done?

    We have never come across a dog who's nails we cannot do using our methods. 

    What if my dog has never been in a crate before?

    A: That's what this course is for. This puppy in the video will be learning crate manners as we film as well.

    What if my dog isn't food motivated?

    A: You do not have to use food for this training, but with some dogs it does help. We have also included a bonus video to help you build food drive with your dog. 

    What age does my dog need to be for this?

    A: Dogs 8 weeks and older can benefit from this training, In fact, I recommend you start them out with training sooner rather than later. Of course, the younger the dog, the easier this process will be as you can begin your counter-conditioning process much earlier with puppies as young as 8 weeks old. 

    Do I need an e-collar for this course

    A: NO. you will not need an ecollar or remote collar for this nail trimming course

    How long will I have access to the course?

    A: You'll have lifetime access to the course. Once you purchase it, it's yours! Due to the digital nature of the course there are no refunds.
