As lovable as dogs are it can be difficult to get them to play ball (no pun intended) when it comes to their grooming. Whether it's giving their fur a little trim, giving them a wash or clipping their nails - canines are often too energetic to stay in one place for just a few minutes.
Luckily, the internet is never short of dog owners imparting their wisdom onto fellow pooch masters. In fact, one TikTok user recently posted a genius peanut butter hack that allows her to easily clip her dog's nails.Take a look at the ingenious hack below:
The video shows Linds Shelton with clingfilm wrapped around her forehead - on which she smears a dollop of peanut butter. She then proceeds to clip her dog's nails while it licks the peanut butter off her forehead. So distracted is the pup that it willingly cooperates with Linds as she give it a pedicure.
The video got a lot of attention on the app and Linds later decided to post it on Twitter, where it now has 5.4 million views at the time of writing.
The commenters praised her for sharing the resourceful trick.
One wrote: "This literally just saved my life bc yesterday I tried to clip one of my doggos nails and it DID NOT GO WELL! Usually, I bring them to a professional so they don’t get mad at me, but quarantine is desperate times! Thanks for sharing! Also, you rock!"
Another shared: "The best thing about this is that it associates nail clipping with treats! Eventually, you might not even need to use the peanut butter, super smart way to approach this."
A third said: "Ok, I have had to sedate my dog to get her nails clipped since we moved away from the clinic I worked at where she knew everyone really well and this is the smartest thing I’ve ever seen in my life."
