    Ideally, they could do to be a little shorter but, if the quick is so close to the end, it would be difficult to clip them.

    I believe you can buy a file for dog claws, or some use a dremmel, so you can shave off a little at a time.

    Actually, the best way to get the quick to shrink back is to regularly take some from the ends.

    I have a JRT and an English Bull terrier the JRT nails always look long where as the EBT never need trimming they are walked together on the same surfaces we say he has rat claws my friend has his sister and she can't believe how quick her claws grow compared to her other dogs:)

    Personally I would work n all now. Putting it off will store up problems as I have found. My boys now get done when he is having some other procedure. Good luck!
