The toes will splay, and they can even cause them to twist, which set them up for horrible future arthritis. Jinjo has a couple toe nails that are turned a bit. Let me see if I can come up with pictures of Noods nails shortly after he got here, his dewclaws were curling right round.

Here are some pics of Noods nails taken shortly after he arrived-







This is where he was at about a year later-

I dremel mine every 5-7 days. Piper & Wilson both have long quicks so I struggle to keep them at a length I like.. trying to get them shorter right now, actually!

I eyeball my duo's paws at least once or twice a week...just checking they are okay.

About every two weeks or so I plop them in my lap and the clipping commences. I have both of them to the point where they are pretty good about it. Menchi sometimes still struggles...but we have come a long way from puppy tantrums.

I use a set of nail clippers that I bought for my cat that is awesome

If I hear clicking on the floor then they are too long. I have dogs, not tap dancers.

I dremmel my dogs' nails about once a week. I am a total weirdo and LOVE trimming their nails.

My goal has been to get them to the length of your after picture forever, but I just can't seem to do it. I've tried dremeling more often (every few days), but the quicks are too close and they pretty much bleed instantly. I still manage to have them short enough that there is no clicking for a couple days after dremeling, but I want them shorter still. Dance's were so easy to get back and keep back, but Ripley's and Keira's are such a challenge.
