How to trim dogs nails
Dogs nails can grow fast! It's important to make sure they are regularly being trimmed by yourself, groomer or veterinarian.
If you are trimming at home, it's important to know where the quick is on your dog. The quick includes a blood vessel and nerves and is easier to see on light dog nails. If your dogs nails have grown out, you want to train the quick to recede by trimming just the tips off every 2 weeks. Once the nail is at a healthy length, you can follow these steps on how to trim your dogs nails.
Step 1 - Picture an imaginary line from your dogs pad going to the nail. Anything above that line is safe to trim
Step 2 - move back any hair that may be around the nail to help you see more clearly
Step 3 - gently grasp your dogs nail and trim
