A lot of people have trouble trimming their dog's toenails. The key to making this less of a chore for you is to make it a positive experience for your dog. Learn how positive reinforcement can help your dog and you!
Step 1: Supplies You'll Need
Toenail clippers-There are two main kinds of clippers:scissor style and guillotine style. I prefer guillotine because I think they are easier to use and give a cleaner cut. No matter which style you choose, the sharper the clipper, the cleaner the cut and the faster the job gets done.
Styptic powder or pencil-Powder form is easier to use than to try and apply a pencil to your squirming dog's foot.
Nail file-same kind you use on your own nails.
dog treats-commercial treats, string cheese, hot dog bits, whatever your dog likes and you can dole out in small portions.
