This is a job that no one likes to do including me! But it is a very important part of having a puppy or an adult dog. Contrary to belief making your dogs toes bleed when trimmed will not make your dog bleed to death!! If you do not ever cut nails and clip the quick a little to make it turn pink or in the case of super long nails clip, them back short (and yes they will bleed) you will never have nice short nails! If this is something you do not want to do then make sure when you go to the groomer make sure you state how short you wish the nails to be and make sure they are as short as you ask for when you pick up your dog. There is no reason to pay for grooming and not have it done correctly!
