My beagle does behave well most of the time until it's time for the ear drops. she will fight me every inch of the way when it comes to putting in the ear drops even biting me enough to draw blood. I treat her like shes queen of the castle. she is so darned cute how can i be angry with those big brown eyes staring at me with so much love!
Haven't had that big of a problem with the ear drops, but cutting the nails is a big problem, they act like you're killing them as soon as you touch their feet. Try using treats and shaping (give a treat for each progressive step, try starting when your not really putting the drops in, just hold the bottle by the ear) - sometimes this works, even helps some of mine with the toenails.
Have you tried aloe pet wipes? you can use them to clean their ears as well. My vet recommended it. I start by approaching Badger when he is laying down and relaxed. I start by Massage the ears then I take a wipe and gently massage on the inside. then i massage the head. He loves it. I haven't had one problem.
