June 11, 2010, Newsletter Issue #342: Clipping Nails

Tip of the Week

Clipping your dog's nails is something that is much easier when done consistently and started from a young age. Your dog will be accustomed to the sensation of getting her nails clipped and will not be frightened by it.

However, if your dog is older or still resistant, you can try using a nail grinder, which works much like a sander for toe nails. Some dogs may be more amiable to shortening their nails in this manner.

Always trim your canine's toes when she is relaxed and not hungry. It may help to have someone assist holding your pooch. Try offering her a treat or chew toy during the trimming process.
