|I had a problem with Prada and her nails when she first came to live with us. Prada, is also a rescue from an abusive situation. In our situation all it took was taking my time and really talking with her and reassuring her with calm tones while I was working on her nails. It was just me so I wrapped her snuggle in a blanket and held her and talked quietly. I patted and messed with her feet a lot while not trying to take care of nails also before jumping into the nails situation when I saw she was resistant. Something I am sure you already know is that they are much easier to work with following a bath, I know it helps Prada.
I also agree with the other response, if they are seriously over grown, go the the groomer or your vet and get them to tackle the hard job away from your presence so that it is not a barrier in your relationship.
Well this is just my two cents worth, if it is even worth that
