With groomers closed in many areas, pet parents have needed to take on the task themselves.
Those who have clipped their dog’s nails in the past, know what a nightmare that can be. But thankfully Lindsey Shelton has come up with a pretty ingenious way to painlessly pull it off.
While sheltering at home in California with her husband and two rescue dogs, Schmidt and Murphy, she realized that desperate times call for desperate measures. So the 27-year-old ICU nurse from California wrapped her forehead with plastic wrap, then proceeded to spoon on some peanut butter.
With Schmidt distracted, she was able to clip all of his nails.
I knew [Schmidt] would love this trick even before trying it because he’s such a foodie!” Shelton said.
Despite her husband calling her a “dork” in the background of the TikTok video, Shelton, who fires back “I’m about to look like a genius!” tells BuzzFeed that she also was mostly successful with her other dog Murphy, finishing three paws.
Geniuses often look like dorks, so either way, well done Lindsey!
