Hey guys, i just bought 2 things for my little angle.

a hair scissors and a nail trimmer. The hair scissor perfectly fine, i style her hair similar to this.


But the nail trimmer looks horrific.

i just can't begin to use the nail trimmer, i am afraid to hurt her.

Anyway, do u have experience doing that? my angle is too naughty.

Hello and welcome! When you trim the dog's (or cat's) nails, you just have to be careful not to cut the quick, which will cause pain and bleeding. In dogs with light colored nails, it's much easier to see where the quick ends. Here's a video that may be helpful...

just put the toenail inbetween the blades, just don't cut to far back, if you cut to far back you will cut the quick and it will bleed. White nails are easier to do than black, the white you can see the quick, it looks like a tiny pink spot, Dark nails are much harder, with the black I only take off the tips, do it more often but not as short.
