There are a few different types of grooming products available for you to trim your dog's nails. You can use either a standard scissor type clipper or a guillotine one. Scissor type clippers have the clipping mechanism located at the end of the tool and work to open and close much like a scissor. The guillotine clipper is a hinged tool with the cutting device also located at the end of the tool. Both work equally well and are a matter of preference.
A third option to use to trim your canine's nails is the grinder, which sands the nails down to the level desired.
