Why do some dogs act like you're murdering them when you try to cut their nails!!???

The answer to your question is simple. I study dog psychology. You need your feet to walk right? Imagine if, in the middle of you walking , someone came up from behind and grabbed your ankle. You will freak out because you need your feet! Same for dog's. Their paws are thier survival. Also we assume dogs know what clippers are....its just a shiny scary looking thing to them. With any new thing you introduce to a dog ALWAYS establish its a good thing first otherwise they'll be terrified

Ha! Sometimes even though you aren't actually getting the quick and making them bleed, it can still hurt if you get too close. Kind of like us getting a blood blister.
