I do all their grooming . As for getting her to stay still..lol...good luck with that. Lina is just one of those chi's that will lay there with you forever as long as she's comfy. I cradled her in my legs like you would a baby, and she just sat there while I painted them. She moved a bit but for the most part was still. Give treats if your pups first time..that might make it easier .I love her nails. Did she get them at the groomers or did you paint them yourselves? If so any tips on how to get them to stay still lol.
