I did make it “fun” for him though. For nail trimming he got leftover rice cake crumbles (he loves ’em), with mixed in lamb jerky. For the “lobster” outfit he got the same treats, plus some “ball time”, which he finds very rewarding.
See? Just goes to show you 1) you can train a dog to like anything (almost) 2) you can use many things besides food to reward your dogs great behavior!
Happy and safe Halloween, from me and my sidekick Poncho! AKA: my “rock lobster”
