    Question Toe nails?

    I took my dog to get his nails clipped professionally to 3 different places and they all did a horrible job. Now my question is how many here do there own dogs? I think it would be fairly easy to do my own dogs cause his toe nails are clear I can see the quick and I know not to go down to far. Also a plus side is he lets me play with his toes and lets me touch his nails with out pulling away. Just don't want to spend the money again and have someone do a horrible job.

    Harlea will let us do hers most of the time but if we aren't quick about it she gets restless so we let the groomer grind them down once a month.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    You can do your own, if he doesn't like to have them clipped, then try a Dremel.

    If I were you I would try it since you can see the quick. Vegas has all black and it scares me, I take him to Petsmart about every 5 weeks and have them dremel, cost is only $11. But I have had them re-do some at times.

    I take my dogs to the groomers to get them to use the dremel… I'm worried w/the black nails that I would cut them

    I cut Lola's nails then we nail file. About twice a month I nip off the tips while giving lots of treats, broccoli or sweet potato

    I think I'm going to try and do it my self. Everytime I take him somewhere he comes back with his nails all the same length they were when he left except for maybe one toe on each paw....just tired of paying the money for nothing being done to him. Its like they didnt even try!
