I like my dogs to have short nails, so Millie's nails are driving me nuts.
The quicks are so long it's ridiculous, so naturally I can only cut them so short.
I've been using nail clippers in combination with a nail grinder to get the quick to recede but it's just not working.
There's also one nail that split and I don't know how to clip it. I don't want to make it split further. She hates having her nails clipped and I'd really hate to take steps back in regards to her level of tolerance of having her nails done.

Halp?

How often are you doing them? Grinding is the best way to get them to recede, but you really need to try and expose them (but carefully so you don't hurt her of course) so there is a round quick poking out from the end of the nail. Try to do them (or at least check them) weekly.

Not sure about the split nail though.

In our case, we bought also a pair nail clippers but I'm reluctant to use it. Actually, I don't feel comfortable trimming my dog's nails so I just let our groomer do this for us when we send him to a full grooming package ( includes bath , hair cut , teeth and ear cleaning).
