Keeping bear claws on during tanning

I have 2 bear hides I'm sending out to get tanned and was advised that the claws will likely come off in the tanning process. How do I go about keeping the claws on?? The tannery said some are stapled on .

I have never heard that. I have the backhide tanned from a couple shoulder mounts that all still have the claws attached. I don't think the taxidermist did anything to them.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
