    My pet sitter/dog walker does them for me. I hold them and she does the clipping. None of mine would be still unless held gently but firmly.
    right, i should give it a try and ask someone to hold him firmly

The way I have found most effective to clip my bunnies’ nails is putting them on a surface which is high enough that they won’t be tempted to try and jump down from (I use a bar stool). Make sure they have grip (eg: put a towel underneath them also). I am usually able to clip the front nails myself but have to get someone to help be for the back paws. Usually I lift the bunny’s front paws off the ground high enough that I can see the back paws, but by no means holding the bunny vertical or upside down (extremely dangerous). If you aren’t comfortable you could always take your rabbit to the vet to get their nails trimmed though. But if you do end up doing it yourself make sure you don’t but off too much and avoid the quick! Hope it helps.
    i'm not sure that works for me because my baby is a little bit crazy and no matter how high the place is, he want to run and i afraid he would hurt himself, after all i think i should ask someone to hold him, by the way thanks for participation
