Default How often do you..

how often do you trim your dogs toenails??

Riots just got his done last time he was at the vet (two weeks ago) and hes already looking like he may need another trim.. I'll ask the vet to do them when hes in for his 3rd booster shot..

Every couple of weeks, I think. I don't really keep track, I just look at them every so often and decide if they need it or not.

Not often with megan, because they seem to keep short by going for walks. but with trusty about once a month because he is quite old and doesnt go out very much.

I just check Hunter's every once in awhile and trim as needed. They can have growth spurts or "dry spells" where it's not like a schedule. I've also noticed that when swimming alot, they seem to need it sooner.

Just whenever they're long. Colby's nails are pretty long right now, so we have to get them clipped...I'm thinking of just doing them myself, because she's calmer that way. I let her lay down while I clip, saying "Do you want a treat, Colby?" the whole time, and she's a little angel for me.
No touchy.

Whenever I notice that they're long, they get trimmed. Dakota's need to be 'tipped' monthly, Ripley's need to be clipped weekly.

my dog has the typical terrier "monster claws" on his front paws and they need frequent trimming despite the fact that we live in the city and he walks on concrete a lot. i don't use a nail trimmer anymore tho, but instead a dremel with a sandpaper drum attachment.

the dremel lets me get closer to the quick than a trimmer, and i try to do them every 2 weeks at the very least, ideally every week.
