Sorry for asking such a specific question, but just curious...

Thanks for all your help so far...
Cornering them may stress him out so i wouldnt reccomend it, i just put m hand underneath the midsecion of the belly and slowly lift a little, then with the other hand i support his front feet and move my other hand to support the back aswell.
I would say if you could handle him daily but for a short duration of time it may help him get used to you and enjoy being handled.
