My dogs get walked everyday on grass and concrete and I can honestly say I've never had to cut my dogs nails! Im always curious as of why.. my old dog had to have his nails cut regularly and he was walked the same.. I guess its just one of those things.. I cut nails quite abit at work though, I hate seeing poor dogs come in with "Curly Nails" I really feel for them

I clip their nails when it's time for their grooming, about every 3 weeks.

About every two weeks or when I can hear his nails click on the floor, which ever comes first.

Anyone ever wanted to paint their dogs nails? lol I did that with my sis' iguana. He was a great candidate. Didn't move at all. And they were blue. Definitely a boy colour

I've painted my girls' nails. One time Colby's were painted light pink when she went to the vet and they commented on how cute they were lol.

same here
I clip them fast and with a purpose. My friend made a comment that I treat their paws like a horse because I make them stand still. Ever since then I let them lay down and roll over for easy access. I used to freak out about the black nails, but its like 2nd nature to me now, I can pretty much tell by looking how short I can go w/o bleeding. I don't really know how I know, I just know

Never clip my dogs nails...
They are not long either. I guess they just wear down from walking and such.
Actually all the dogs nails seem rather short, I just looked.

Every week. Its not so much keeping them short, but I want him to feel comfortable with the clippers and the dremel. I barely even take any off.

It's so hard to trim black nails. Jack's are black and I'm so afraid that I'm going to clip him to short. He's such a baby to.

His nails are black as well which makes them a little harder to see the quick.

He was completely fine with his nail until ONE mistake by me and a nicked his quick and he bled a little. I put the blood stopper on him and he was completely fine.. but ever since then hes remembered that mommy hurt his toe from the clippers and now makes a huge deal out of it.

I clipped his nails and filed them tonight before pool time and as soon as he saw those clippers he started to whimper, which progessed into whines(when I grabbed his paw for clipping) and then nibbles on my hands as I was doing it. This stopped immidiatly though.

Hes flipped over on his back with his head resting on my lap while I clip his nails too(soo much eaiser then standing).

He was very good at the end(back feet) though lol I gave him a nylabone to take his "anger" out on and that served him well lol
