A Step-by-Step Guideline How To Cut Dog Nails

Gather the necessary tools

For safe and effective dog nail trimming, gather appropriate nail clippers, styptic powde and a comfortable surface.

Get your dog comfortable

Create a calm, well-lit space to work with your dog. Comfort them with gentle petting, praise, and treats for positive reinforcement.

Get Familiar with anatomy

Identify the quick, the pink area inside your dog's nail with blood vessels and nerves, to avoid pain and bleeding during trimming.

Start trimming

Hold your dog's paw securely, trim small sections of the nail at a time, avoiding the quick. Check the length gradually for precision.

Be cautious and take breaks

Take breaks if needed. Apply styptic powder to stop bleeding from accidental cuts. Offer reassurance and treats for a positive experience.
