    How do we know when nails need clipping? When they have a “hook”?

    @bladeimm Yes, clip the “hook”. Although some dogs never need a nail trim. For instance, dogs that are walked on pavement usually need less nail trimming or no nail trimming.

    @bladeimm Yeah, the “hook”. The tip of the canoe where the Indian was sitting… clip that part to make it straight.

    This is a great vid for showing people like me who are just not good at nail trimming, thanks! I’ve never seen the version of how to come at the nail, like in this vid so it’s great info & demo! I have one question, do you guys have a demo on how to clip nails on a dog who’s fighting it? I have a friend who needs the info bigtime! You guys rock & are pretty damn funny too!

    You can actually split the nail (like a polyseed) by cutting it horizonally like you show. Groomers recommend you cut it laterally.

    Lol, I didn’t even get the “Dix/dicks”joke until you explained it ;P Nah, it’s just really late and I’m too sleepy for that.Personally I’ve never had an “accident” with my dog and I’ve clipped her nails since we got her-almost eleven years ago, and I was nine at the time. But now that you’ve shown me this new way I’m not gonna risk it and will try it out next time.Actually,I think her nails might need clipping just about now,but I’ll wait until I’m not that sleepy or I’ll cut her head instead;P

    Hey guys, me again. I need your help. I have a cocker spaniel puppy here, exactly 5 weeks old today. Her nails are really long and she’s not only scratching me all the time, but they also get in her way a lot as she can’t free her paws from things like my sweater. But her nails are still thin and sharp like a cat’s, so I’m not sure if I should cut them already. Please help?
