NAIL TRIMMING!

Check out this great video Katalina & Archie made to show how easy it is to trim your dog’s nails!

Here are a few things to remember when thinking about nail trimming:

  • Nails come in different colors; so if your dog’s nails are dark, be very careful not to get too close to the quick. (sometimes it can be hard to see).
  • Start nail trimming-training early. Get your puppy used to having it’s paws messed with so that it is not a scary thing.
  • Don’t wait too long in between trims. Too much growth can cause pain when trimming and the quick to be too close to the end.
  • Create a habit! Do it regularly and give lots of treats! (unless your pet regularly goes to the groomer).
  • And lastly, Don’t use FORCE! You’ll do twice the damage mentally and physically if forced. Making next time even harder.
