If you are a dog owner, you know the struggle that is clipping their nails. Most often times, it’s much easier to just leave the task up to the professionals.

However, with many businesses closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, dog groomers are simply not an option.

The best strategy for keeping your pup still and relaxed while you give them a “paw-dicure?” is ‘distraction! Nurse and model Lindsey Shelton has come up with a brilliant hack for this situation, and you’re going to want to try it out on your canine ASAP.

The idea may sound and look silly, but it’s incredibly genius! First, you wrap your head in plastic wrap. Next, you smear peanut butter all over your head. When you bend over to clip your dogs nails, they will be distracted by licking the peanut butter off of your head. Just remember, don’t use any peanut butter that has chocolate in it, because chocolate is quite dangerous to dogs.

Watch Shelton demonstrate her amazing strategy in the Instagram video below:

She originally posted the video on TikTok, and in her Instagram caption she promised that a “product is in the making.”

So, how did she come up with this hilariously awesome hack?

“Truly, boredom,” Shelton told PopSugar of what led to her clever solution. “I was being silly and my dogs needed their nails trimmed.” Hey, necessity is the mother of all invention, right?
