Use a pair of dog nail clippers or a grinder specifically designed for trimming dog nails.
Gradually introduce your dog to the clippers or grinder, allowing them to sniff and investigate to build comfort and trust.
If needed, have someone assist you in holding your dog calmly and securely during the nail trimming process.
The quick is a pink area inside the nail that contains blood vessels and nerves. Avoid cutting into the quick to prevent bleeding and discomfort for your dog.
Trim a small portion of the nail at a time to minimize the risk of cutting the quick.
Hold the clippers or grinder with a firm grip and make clean, quick cuts.
If your dog becomes anxious or stressed, take breaks between nail trims to allow them to relax before continuing.
