  5. I have 4 dog babies. 1 gets militant lol, 1 is terrified, one does not like it but will endure it, and the last will just lay there…..so it is HORRIFYING FOR US ALL! Except for Rosie. So honestly, I let their nails get too long. I would take them to a groomer, but I cannot afford to take 4 dogs to groom, so I have to figure this out, and I do not want my babies in pain either Thank you for this.

  9. Tens of thousands of years ago, dogs grew frustrated at not being able to trim their nails. And so they befriended human beings to do the job for them. They called them Manicurists.

  12. I was looking for information on visualizing the quick to avoid it.

  13. My dogs used to dig and it filed them. Yes, even the back.
    Now I have a Chihuahua. She's not digging enough apparently cause her nails are too long. She takes off like a rocket when I touch her feet. I used to be able to get at least one first. Guess I gotta work on it.
    She's so easy about everything else and listens so well. She caught on right away as a pup. The only other problem we've had (other than a little accident here and there) was sneaking cat turds out of the litter box to nibble on them. After a few times of he telling her, "No" and putting them back in the box she stopped.
    Gotta train her on something for once.

  14. By telling people not to use the guard you are causing unneeded pain for the animals. The safety is why we bought ours and the only reason we can successfully trim our dogs nails. Going back to either style we have already tried is not an acceptable suggestion and I am betting there are many more than me. That is an irresponsible suggestion to make when it will cause harm to animals.

  25. Thank you so much! I have an extremely anxious rescue dog and using this technique I was able to trim a single nail for the first time since I got her a year ago without sedation. I never thought I'd be so excited to be able to trim just one nail! 😊

  27. Great technique. I’ve started with my one year old adoption dog, and I’ve never done this before. The attempts I’ve made haven’t gone very well, but I can see she would easily learn that. And hopefully I can too!lol

  30. To Bliztix – you need to get a 75” or 82” UHD TV, so that your dog can watch while reclining in their Laz-Y-Boy heated and massaging chair!

  31. I am a visually impaired woman with a Seeing AI Photos. I would love to learn how to trim my own dogs nails. She is a German Shepherd and she is five years old. Normally I take her to the groomer. However that is quite expensive. What would you suggest or how could I start learning how to do this

  32. My dog is reluctant for me to trim his front paws, but will not allow me to do the back ones. Have you got any advice please? Do I try with him on his back on my knee?

    Reply
  33. I don't think so.

  34. If you cut the quick, you can also use ordinary kitchen flour.  I learned this when I was cutting my malteses nails and I had to call the emergency number to find out what to do.  Just keep packing the nail with the flour.  I usually leave the flour on for awhile to make sure it stops.  Then you can rinse the paw or give the dog a bath.

  35. Thank you Shannon and Ned. This is the best tutorial on the subject of dog nail clipping. You didn't do it as a vet does to a dog, but a mother to her baby. A wealth of knowledge gained. Thank you. God bless you both!

  39. How can I get my dog to cooperate when its time to cut her nails? I have a pit mix and she flexes. Her vet said that she would sedate her if she won't cooperate when its time to cut her nails, so I ended up having to do it myself. Its such a traumatic experience for me the human and my canine can be a total a$$h0l3 because she learned that if she is a jerk for long enough I won't cut her nails. Unfortunately she has had the experience of a broken nail. What do I do!?!?!?! I have an electronic nail file and my pup does the same thing with that one and the guillotine…

  40. This is probably the most informative, well spoken, thorough, detailed, and CLEAR video I've seen. Thank you. You are a fantastic teacher.

  41. My 6 year golden used to be okay with nail trimming, but sometimes I got the quick a few times and since then he's lost trust and gotten worse. So it's back to the drawing board. Thanks for being informative. I do wish you had shown clipping of the back legs because sometimes finding a good cutting position can be difficult.
