I've never trimmed a dog's nails before. We've always just had it done at the groomers when Abby would be boarded (we'd get her a bath and nails trimmed) if we had a weekend trip. Well we don't really take the weekend trips at all anymore, so no more boarding... and no more professional grooming. I can bathe her at home just fine (short hair dog, doesn't require much maintenance), but her nails are in desparate need of clipping. The problem is her nails are dark and I can't see the quick. Any advice on a good way to tell where to actually cut, or am I just guessing and hoping I don't hit it?
