You probably need to desensitize your with to the sound of the nail clippers. I suggest getting a small pile of VERY good treats. Click the trimmers and give a treat. Practice often, so she associates the sound of the trimmers with something good. THEN it's time to start working on her nails again. Clip one, give a treat. If you only do one or two at a time at first, she may not get overwhelmed or over stimulated by the process. Also, if you anticipate it being a problem, you will give off that vibe and she'll pick it up. Try to keep a calm, positive attitude about it, like it is no big deal. That will help her feel the same. Aussies are very tuned into our moods and what we project (if we are nervous, stressed, mad, happy, etc).
