It is recommended to trim a dog's nails every 2-4 weeks to manage the length and sharpness. This service includes shaving out the pads at the bottom of the feet which reduces slipping on hard floors and makes it easier for your pup to get up from laying down.
Keeping on top of this can bring amazing results! Over the course of 6-8 months of regular trimming, the "quick", or the little vein that is inside the nail, begins to recede, allowing the nail to be trimmed shorter and shorter. Eventually, with consistency, the nails will achieve the desired length every time, reducing scratching your floors and skin, and also providing a more comfortable stride for your pup.
