Periodic nail trims are essential for all dogs. Trimming your dog's nails regularly can help to minimize the damage caused by scratching. Cutting your dog's nails does not have to be something you dread. There are a few things you can do to make your dog’s nail clipping day a pleasant and even enjoyable experience for both of you. Learn how to cut your dog nails the right way. Watch this video on nails trimming and how to go about it.Before we talk about how to clip your dog’s nails, you must know what’s inside of them. Underneath is something called a quick, whichprovides blood supply to the nail. Do not cut the quick. If you do, blood will gush out of the nail and your dog will experience a lot of pain. I cannot stress enough how sensitive this part is. Guillotine style: This style of nail trimmer has an internal blade and a hole to line up the nail. When the handle is squeezed, the blade comes up to trim the nail, kind of like an upside-down guillotine. Many beginners find this type of trimmer very easy to use. However, it is very important to hold this trimmer in the correct manner so that it works properly. The handle should be down below the dog's paw, with the nail hole at the top. The screws on the trimmer should be facing towards your dog. The nail should then be lined up inside the hole at the right spot to make the cut. The internal blade on guillotine trimmers can be replaced when it becomes dull. Guillotine trimmers work best for small to medium size nails. They are not ideal for very large or very small nails.
