My buck is 12 weeks old and he absolutely hates being handled. I don't think his breeder socialized him very much. He has his first vet appointment in 2 weeks and I don't want the trip to the vet to be extremely stressful for him. Additionally, I need to be able to trim his nails, check his teeth, etc. I sit on the floor with him daily and he comes up to me and bonks me with his head but he usually hops away when I try to touch him. Do I pick him up anyway, while sitting on the floor with him? Put him in my lap and try to help him feel safe there? He's too young to bribe with treats. We still have 2 weeks to work on socializing but I haven't make much progress in the month that I've had him. He's just a very independent little guy! How much handling to I insist upon before this upcoming appointment? Thank you for any thoughts or suggestions!
