Default Tucker can do his own nails!

I decided instead of spending God only knows how long getting Tucker used to a dremel I'd see if I could get him to scratch sand paper like I've seen videos of. It's going really well! He has been favoring his right paw but we're working to fix that. The only big problem I'm having is that the way he scratches files down the top of his nails, but not the bottom, it's like he must curl his nails while he scratches. I've laid the paper flat, and held it up at an angle, but it is still happening. I think I'm going to try having him scratch UP the paper, from above and see if that works next time. Anyone else who has done this ever had that problem?

Here is a video from our training session today:

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!
