Trimming Your Dog's Nails At Home

Tutorial by Amy.


Tools you will need:


Recommended: Styptic Powder (AMAZON). If you don't have it make sure to have corn starch on hand in case a nail bleeds. The surface are will aid with clotting.

Optional: Handheld Dremel tool (AMAZON) This allows you to smooth out the sharp edges after trimming. Not recommended if your dog does not like the trimming process or has very long hair around the paw pads which could get caught in the dremel. Be careful around those ears too!

"Toenails are pretty easy to trim at home. It's best to just take off a little at a time when you're first starting out. Over time you and your dog will both become more confident in your skills and you can start taking off a little more. If you don't have a dremel tool you can just use a human nail file to buff off the sharp edges." - Amy, Pawsh Groomer
