Need help calming dog for groomingHello, I have a Saint Bernard that really hates to be groomed. The brush is a toy and the nail clippers are the devil to her. She has dew claws that tend to grow very fast. Trimming those claws is a nightmare. I need something that will calm her enough that she won't care so much that I am cutting them. At this point she pulls away if I even go near them. When she was a pup she broke her back leg so I am very nervous about forcing the leg down while I trim the nails. (I kick myself for not having the dew claws removed when she was younger) I have looked and not being too familiar with homeopathy I am not sure what will be safe for me to try. I would say she is about 115lbs. Also at this point I am worried they will bleed when I cut them. She was at the groomer not too long ago and I suspect they weren't cut as much as they could have been because they are really curled.
Any help would be appreciated.

I just got cards in the mail from the vet that she is due for her distemper and rabies shots soon. I am always up to date with them. I am currently looking into getting those shots elsewhere. I cannot afford my vet's usual bill this time because I am out of work. She is 3 years old. Other than the broken leg when we first got her she has not had any health problems.
