Kalandra Its really only doable with a hedgehog that will allow it. If the hedgehog is tense/defensive, chances are you aren't going to get a proper hold on them and the hedgehog will be in a tense position while you attempt to scruff.

I needed to clip her nails and this stubborn little girl hates it.

octopushedge Yeah, Reggie isn't a fan of it either. I generally try to avoid doing it as much as possible

Also place a hand on their rump to help support their weight.

twobytwopets There are a few situations where scuffing is beneficial. For example, if you need to check something suspie on their underside, feet or legs.

Echo_21 Thank you guys, I tried it and Karn just gave me the 'what do you think you're doing' look.

Dumble I have seen this done and maybe it works for some people but I think if I ever did that with Dumbles he would give me the most serious stink eye ever! lol!
