I will, eventually.

I'm so not the DIY kind of person though, I much prefer to just buy something already made. *le sigh*

We also dremel.. Cider is a pain about clippers, she screams the entire time.. She'll actually tolerate the dremel most of the time or till the last nail or two, but will settle and take it.. Smudge has been dremelled since puppyhood and doesn't care.

YOu best learn how, too long of nails can split and cause worse injury. The dewclaw nail can grow into the pad when it fully circles.

I had a bad pair of clippers and i am just horrifed, first time i used them on Pepper who has been a champ and it split the nail right into the nail bed. Now she is pretrified but i have since clipped her nails twice and she is slowly trusting me again. i don't know what was wrong with them i have never had a pair do that before and it is was the same brand i have always trusted to be sharp and effective. I have always sworn that dull clippers will get you bite, no dog likes the pinch. THey should cut like butter, fast and clean. Pepper's nail has been a long time growing out and she still has a trace of a limp.

Then you will need to take him very regularly to the vet or groomer so it can be done. Most dogs are just fine with it, but it is something that needs doing at least every other week with most dogs.

Its much cheaper to do it yourself.. but if you can't then you will have to take your dog to someone who can.

I just use the pair I bought at Walmart... they work wonderfully and cut quick and evenly. They really don't split. I've been meaning to get a dremel, and may get around to it one of these years. For now, most of my guys aren't crazy over getting their nails clipped, but aren't too bothered by it. Every 2 weeks is grooming time, which includes a bath and a nail trim. By now, they're used to it.

I love my walmart nail clippers though.

I use the Wahl brand for clipping my dogs. I have a whole kit of it. I would recommend it. Maybe you could google it, but i got it at walmart.

I like Millers clipper (with orange handle).it cuts well and my dog tolerate it well.When you have puppy,you can touch the paw a little,click and treat,and gradually hold the paw,click and treat.You handle muzzle and click and treat.These things really help for nail clipping or teeth blushing. To do easy nail clipping,find the treat your dog go nuts about and place the treat where dog cannot touch/go grab it but can see and smell. Let them sit nicely and start with touch the paw,click treat,and gradually,hold the paw,click and treat and finally one nail clip and treat. I think clipping just one nail at a time is fine.Palette is not into nail clipping but with this treat,she is much cooperative.
I am trying to do dremel but just touching her paw with dremel without it being on scares her still or pull her paws away so,I am not still to the step try with it on.It will be long days away.To do dremel,so that the fur does not caught on dremel,you can use pantyhose you don't use and let the paw in,pull it back and all hair is away from the rolling dremel.I barely clip my dog's nail.I think from walking/running,it seems grinding the nail naturally.I usually clip front paws nails.I am not a dog trainer but these helped me do clipping my dog nail and teeth blushing.

Val was traumatized at the Vet with nail trimming. I am trying to desensitize his paws before I even attempt to clip them.

Is there any type of trimmer that is best for a dog that absolutely freaks at nail trimming?

Any tips on trimming nails of dog that has been traumatized with his nail trimming????
