we have to keep greyhounds nails short we cut them ourselves.do you ever trim you dogs nails
never. ollie keeps his short enough with walks.
Do my lot with a Dremmel
(my lot not Tashis lot lol )
Yep cut Alfie's occassionally, dew claws a bit more than others
Yes I do all our dogs nails, Milo have alot of fur around his paws, so I get a ladies pair of tights and nick tiny hole in the nylon and push his nails through the holes, and as I pull the fabric over his paw it takes the fur with it so I get a better view of his nails (Black) and I dont have to keep pulling the fur back each time I do a nail, it is done quicker too.:thumbup:
our vet trim jessie our labradore nails because she never sit still enough for us to do it lol
Only have to cut Kodas dew claws.....just done them actually!
Never had to yet, he seems to wear them down himself.
I always thought that walks = short nails but mine have the same exercise and Zeb are really short and bears are like little high heels he clip clops odd really!
Some of ours have never been done, but some of the oldies and the house dogs nearly always need trimming - one of the downsides of having a dog paddock really
Haven't yours got dew claws?
No he hasnt, do all dogs have them? My last dog (also a gsd) didnt have any either
I have to do it occasionally. He doesn't have dewclaws either :confused1:. I went and checked. I have to trim Leo's more
havent they got front dews, not many dogs have rear but most have front unless they have been removed at birth
nope none, but neither did my last gsd I just assumed gsds dont have them .
Hmm I'll get back to you *goes to check*
probably removed then, alot of working breeds have theys removed because of the damage that can be caused to them.
Shouldnt the breeder have asked if I wanted that done? Would it have hurt?
They are done at about 3 days old, as for the breeder asking you, you probably wouldnt have chosen your puppy that young.
