Hi, this is Sammi at the Utah Animal Care Center in West Bountiful, Utah. We have Ruby here to help us demonstrate how to trim your dog's nails without causing trauma. The first and most important thing is to start young. When you first get a puppy, you'll want to start trimming it's nails so it gets used to it. Make sure to do it often. You can trim nails as much as every two weeks. Make sure that you know how to properly trim the nails, and also have the proper restraint. Make sure that you don't cut into the quick, as that will cause pain for the dog, causing them to be less patient, and you'll want to work swiftly to minimize the stress level on the dog. As always, be sure to reward a dog for any good behavior. If you'd like to contact us, please go to
