Congratulations on trancing and at least getting through one foot! That's big success!. My Rucy really avoids being put on her back, but it's that 'ol forehead rub that really does the trick with trancing and I usually have to put her through a few trances. I don't think one trance has ever been long enough for me to do all feet. I'm fast, but not that fast. Though I know some people are! Speedclippers!
Your hubby can just rub Sable's forehead to help keep her in a trance or help put her back into another one when she comes to. Bailey doesn't need to be tranced to get her nails trimmed so I'm lucky there. And Jack, he goes straight into a trance as soon as he goes on his back, but I have to watch it, because when he comes out of it, he can freak out, and so I have to always make sure he can't hurt himself by kicking out into the air.
You'll soon be old hat at it. I am so glad you were able to do this. Less stressful for all of you! Human and bunny alike.
Yeah! Bunny Trance and Clipping Celebration!
