Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Blaze fell down 3 of our wooden stairs the other day we believe it was because he has not had his nails done in sometime.

I took Blaze and Kerian to get the nails done today Kerian had no problem she let the girl do it with out any problems. When the girl took Blaze back to do his. We Kerian and I could see the grooming area we he proceed to bark everytime she touch his feet. Kerian and I walk away from the waiting area thinking he was acting up because we were there when we came back she still was having problems with him.
I don't know if maybe he hurt his feet when he fell or they hurt because Kerian bites on them when they play. He also may have felt very unsure of her.

Well anyway she was able to get the back feet done using the dremel but could not get the front one done he refused to let her using the dremel. I told her that was okay she led him out to the waiting area to me and Kerian he then laid down and got all relax. She thought maybe she could clip them while he was there she came close to him he bark and Kerian growled. At this point nothing could be done I purchased some clippers on our way home and we will try and clip his nails ourselves.

Okay back to the original question do you guys clip or dremel you dogs nail?

Do you do it yourself or take them to a groomer??

I clip or dremel them depending on what I can get my hands on at work. It's whenever I notice them honestly...

I get them clipped every now and then at work and that's honestly just a nightmare. I hate to do it, but it needs to be done sometimes. I also have a dremel that I use at home and I like is so much better than clippers. Ava isn't a fan of it, but she definitely tolerates it better and it makes for a less traumatic experience all the way around.

I do my dogs nails myself and I use both, clip first and then dremel smooth.
