How to Trim Your Dog's Nails?

Choose the right tools

Use a pair of dog nail clippers or a grinder specifically designed for trimming dog nails.

Familiarize your dog

Gradually introduce your dog to the clippers or grinder, allowing them to sniff and investigate to build comfort and trust.

Get a helper

If needed, have someone assist you in holding your dog calmly and securely during the nail trimming process.

Identify the quick

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.

Start with small cuts

Trim a small portion of the nail at a time to minimize the risk of cutting the quick.

Use a steady hand

Hold the clippers or grinder with a firm grip and make clean, quick cuts.

Take breaks if needed

If your dog becomes anxious or stressed, take breaks between nail trims to allow them to relax before continuing.
