There are a couple things most dogs hate: going to the vet and going to the groomer.
Although getting a makeover tends to be less traumatizing than getting checked out by the vet, it can still be scary for pups to see scissors or shavers getting close to their skin.
One of the worst parts of the whole grooming experience? Clipping their nails.
Most dogs absolutely despise getting their nails clipped — and really, why wouldn’t they? It’s scary to have big pliers coming toward your sensitive nail beds. Plus, it’s always difficult to explain to dogs that everything is going to be OK.
Kendal Peifer knows how much her dog hates getting his nails clipped. When her dad came up with a clever nail-cutting hack involving a purse and a chin-up bar, Kendal knew she had to share the brilliant grooming trick online.

On February 10, 2018, Kendal tweeted two photos of her dad cutting their dog’s nails.
Within just two days, her post had almost 50,000 retweets and over 209,000 likes.
People were amazed by the dad’s brilliant idea.
Who would have thought to buy a purse, cut holes in it, and make a comfy harness for a dog?
Once he finished making the purse harness, he put the dog into it to cut his nails.
People everywhere loved the grooming hack, and they commented on the tweet with their thoughts.
One woman wrote, “HE GOT THE HEADLAMP TOO!!! such a dad thing omg dyin.”
“This is the best thing I’ve seen all day,” wrote another person.
And a third person said, “Your dad is a genius and must be protected at all costs.”
A number of people tagged their friends and family members, saying that they wanted to try this with their own dogs.
Others knew that even this clever trick wouldn’t work for their dogs. Somehow, they’d find a way to get out.
Now this is a life-hack I can get behind…but I’m also damn sure my Shiba would find a way to get out of it because that’s how she rolls with me. 😀 https://t.co/Y9Nxh2d6sr

What would happen if you tried something like this with your dog? (I know mine would definitely still freak out.)
How do all dads have these innovative ideas in their head? They are seriously secret inventors. https://t.co/gAHk1EvgpK

Dads are truly geniuses. This seems like something only a dad could come up with!
Do you know a dad who would imagine a hack like this one?
