Kristi, it is important to trim all dogs' nails, whether they spend most of their time indoors or outdoors. Dogs that walk regular or are outside actually may need less trimming than dogs that stay inside because they naturally wear down their nails.

Should you cut his nails if your dog is mostly inside rather than an outside dog??

I trim my dogs nails regularly. She has no problem with it. I have tried the grinder and did not like it, I also tried both the guillotine and plier types. I like the plier style best. I think my dog lets me do her nails because with her being and agility dog I have to regularly clip the hair away from the pads on her feet so she does not slip on the contacts and she is just used to having things done to her feet. Grooming is a regular part of life with a show dog and she has no problem with me doing any kind of grooming. I always make it fun and she always get treats when I am finished for standing and being cooperative.

Rocky is a pitbull lab mix. He weighs 75 lb. He hates his nails clipped. Even my groomer gave up on him. Every time I play with him I get cut with them. I am thinking about getting a muzzle for him. He doesn't bite, but he is just

uncontrollable The minute he sees the clippers he goes nuts. What can I do?

I always trim my dogs' nails after I've exercised them, because they'll be calmer and resting; and or after a bath because the nail will be softer and makes less noise. It usually doesn't take but a few minutes, and I'll give them lots of love!! ... talk to them using a soft voice while doing it and after, it just calms them ... :)

We family owned grooming business on the other side of the country in Los Angeles...we thought your readers may be interested in seeing an article we wrote with a few at home grooming tips as well! One of the items we wrote about was nail clipping, and we thought your article was informative as well! http://aromatherapypetgrooming.com/article02.html

Hi!
I trim my mini schnauzer's nails by laying her oj her back on my footstool and rubbing her tummy first. Then when she's fully relaxed I do each toe. She doesn't even flinch!
