So Lincoln has never been a fan of others trimming his nails. Anybody could touch them and play with them, kiss them, massage them ... anything BUT trim them.
Last Sunday Lincoln went to PetSmart for his grooming and I gringed when I saw the lady working ... she is not that personable and has never been patient with Lincoln. The other groomers know him by name and just love on him giving him hugs and kisses. This lady is always quick to say that we don't play enough with his feet, he has issues, etc ... Well to make a long story short, she was the only one there to groom him.
We come back to pick him up and the dog trainer was in the grooming shop ... nobody else. He goes to get Lincoln and comes back out and says we MUST play with his feet more. We explain that we do and he never has issues with anybody playing with them he just dislikes the trim.
Everyday we have been trying to play with his feet but now Lincoln won't even let us near his paws. When we do finally touch them he just wiggles away and growls and sometimes even snaps at us going for our face. He has never done this before. We always used to "dance" with him and kiss his paws but he won't even let us near them whatsoever!
I want to know what that witchy lady did to our Lincoln to make him this traumatized? They all think we don't work enough with him when that isn't the case!
I am pissed off and don't know what to do because that non patient groomer obviously had a negative impact on Lincoln.
