I had this idea in my head not long after getting "Koji", as I could see that he was very skittish, like many Shiba Inus, about having his nails clipped. Around the time I was mulling it over, I came across Shirley Chong's website where I saw she did just that. So she was my inspiration to go through with it. Thanks Shirley!!

The board looks a bit funky because I started with some samples of 60-grit black non-skid tape, and then finished it with some 80-grit sanding sheets. The non-skid tape works well, but it's hard to find locally. If you search the web, you can find it in 6"X24" strips or 6" X 10' rolls. Not cheap, but the stuff is tough and should last a long time. Well worth it IMO if this is going to be your primary method for keeping the nails trimmed.

Nothing better than getting a dog to do his own nails! It literally took me 5 minutes to train him to do this using a clicker. The clicker is useful for teaching the dog to scratch longer, before getting a treat. This is one of Koji's favorite activities. He will enthusiastically start scratching the moment I put the board in front of him.
