Juno's nails get clipped whenever the clicking gets too loud. Her nails ALWAYS click, lol unless I actually removed the nail completely I don't see how it'd be possible for them not to... but when they start getting "too long", the sound changes. It's probably every couple weeks.

Lucy is whenever I think of it. She's kind of a pain so it just depends on if I feel like wrestling with her.

Just about never. Have to use walks with how much Buster hates it.

I'd guess every 2-3 weeks. At least once a month when I do a full groom on them. I keep their nails longer than a lot of people I see for grip reasons. Oddly enough my dogs almost never need the back feet done, just the front. The dewclaw is the one I check to make sure they're not getting too long.

I actually did their nails and bath and feet trim today.

Every 1-2 weeks. I may be weird, but I actually love doing nails. I clip dog nails every day pretty much at work and enjoy it.

Every 3-4 months? She gets them done when she goes to the groomers, or recently she's had them done when she's under anesthesia at the vets having her teeth pulled

I've never done them myself. They never get ridiculously long, due to multiple daily walks on sidewalk and hard packed dirt I think.

My guys get done every 1 - 2 weeks I'd say. Both are fine about having them done, but if I try to do them more often, I wind up looking at all the nails and not clipping them, because there isn't much of anything past the pink.

I'd love to try dremeling them, but I don't won't to spend the money on the tool to realize that both my dogs hate it!

Tipper's get done every 2-3 weeks and should get done every week. I have her file her nails though - I am terrified of quicking her since she hates having her feet handled and her nails are impossible to see through. So we compromise with the filing. Only her front nails have to be done, which is lucky because I don't know how we'd do the back.

Murphy and Mu I have never done, unless I need to trim a broken nail. Which is annoying because the two dogs that I could easily trim their nails don't need it, the one that thinks clippers are made of lava needs it a lot.

Mine get done every 1-2 weeks. Harlow is super easy. She just sits there and lets me do them. Plus she has all white nails, so I can easily keep hers down. Rider isn't as good, though he is getting much better with a treat every nail. Before, he would fight and fight. Now he just acts like he's dying, but stays still. His nails are dark, and extremely long (whoever had him before we rescued him must not have touched them). So, I try to keep doing his weekly to work the quick back. I hate dark nails.

Not nearly enough. We were really good for a while, but it's a two person job and Ryan doesn't like the struggle. Plus we have to soak Frodo's nails in the tub for like 5 minutes first and then he wails and snarls the whole time we are doing it. And we can only do 1 paw at a time.

When we were doing good, we were trimming every day (stupid raw fed toenails!), one paw every single day.

Now I'm going to go soak his feet in the tub, thanks for reminding me!

I just trimmed Bailey's foot hair and did her nails this morning. She's gotten really sensitive about her front feet and I'm not sure why. She was trying to pull away pretty much the whole time. I'd stop, she'd think then offer her foot again but it was obviously painful, or at least uncomfortable, for her. Mrrg.
