Suddenly noticed how long they were! We had just done some training so he was full up with cashew nut pieces. Wondered what else I could use as reinforcement? Did some fooling around and got him reacting positively to a silly voice and a shocked expression. Would these be reinforcement enough? I shaped his feet gripping the perch as I approached with the clippers. Each step closer was reinforced by the silly voice and shocked expression and I took the clippers away again. After a few times I could touch his longest nail with the clippers. Then clip! Did the same with the longest toe on the other foot. YAY! When it was done, Ollie asked for a piece of cashew anyway. I thought he deserved one!
