For A Perfect Pooch Choose Guillotine Nail Clippers.

Jul 10, 2008
It is vital to keep a dog's nails trimmed short enough.

If the nails grow too long, many health problems can result, such as bleeding and broken nails and ingrown nails.

Your dog's feet are tough but tender, and any foot injury can cause serious problem to move about.

There's an easy way to know if your dog is overdue nail clipping and that is the sound of click-click-click of the nails on hard floors. You can take your dog to a professional groomer for a manicure, or you can do it yourself.

If doing it yourself is your style, remember a couple of vital rules.

You need the right equipment and you need to have some knowledge of the anatomy of your dog's paw.

Without these you will have a recipe for disaster on your hands.

The quick is the area to watch for when you trim your dog's nails, you should cut below this. It is easy with dogs with transparent or light coloured nails but harder with dark nails so take care!

So you need a high grade nail trimmer next; look no further than the Master Grooming Tools Guillotine Nail Clippers, with fantastic grip and easy-use design. Plus the blades are sharp enough to make easy work of the toughest nail.

So you have got your equipment, now let's talk technique.

The best position is to sit with your dog in your lap taking his paw in your hand.

The nail will extend if you gently push the pad; now you have to try to ascertain where the quick is and below that point start to trim at 45 degrees. Little by little is the key, don't hurry this job.

Finish the nails off by checking you haven't left sharp or uneven edges.

It's so important to trim the nail carefully as you can seriously hurt your dog with a slip of the hand - and you will know about it!
