I dremel probably every 7-10 days. Bailey's nails are getting longer living with my mom so I need to make a point of seeing her at least twice a month I guess!

Avdotya will let me pretty much do anything to her, but she seems to ware her nails down to where I really only have to cut them when the weather gets bad and we can't go for a walk. Chekhov though He lives up to the corgi reputation of a groomers nightmare. We take him to the groomer where he has a special note in his folder that he "wiggles." I think it is a polite way of saying that he turns into a hell beast.

It depends on the dog. I'd say on average I do Skye and Zoie's every 2-3weeks just because they are laying on my bed and I do them real quick. The other dogs probably 4-6 weeks. Ritzy isn't great, neither is Coconut, so I tend to space them out more.

Romeo never needs his nails cut. They have always been incredibly short.

They're definitely too long, but they're not *insanely* unhealthily long. It's something I'm just trying to get better at and never do.

This with both my dogs. Chloe is easier to cut nails than Violet because she pretty much stays still now, but she gets stressed so I don't do them super often (every couple weeks or so) and when I do, I don't cut too much off because if I cut her quick she gets SO upset and stressed out and won't let me touch her feet for a long time.

Violet won't let me touch her feet ever. She hates it, and will pull away/kick/growl/mouth my hand if I try to touch them. I clipped her nails as a puppy and handled her feet a lot and she never has tolerated it. I've cut her nails maybe 3 or 4 times in the two years she's been alive. And she's had them done at the groomers a couple times. They really don't get very long though, because she runs around outside so much more than Chloe.

Every 5-6 days.. I absolutely cannot STAND long nails or nails that make noise on my wood floors. Any dog of mine must tolerate the dremel, there is no negotiating that one LOL.

I dremel as well, but every two weeks, more often if they start clicking.

I try to trim weekly, sometimes life gets in the way and it's 2 weeks.

Once or twice a week, just nip off the ends to keep them in check.

I usually trim or dremel every week or two. Henry does not like his nails done but tolerates it.
