    I have nail clippers and I'm able to do my dog Izzy's nails. She is never happy about it, but she will sit still. Her nails are black, so I just snip the tips off. My other dog Bert has white nails. They have gotten long in the 4 months we've had him. They seem to get roughed up when walking...

    My girl Gemini has always had all white nails, but as she has gotten older she has developed dark red almost brown markings on top of her nails (most of them at least).

    Ugggh, I saw Felony today... she has been moved to an outside pen in an unfenced area of Jennys yard. Her nails were so long they came to points like little needles. They were so bad that her toes are starting to splay. Felony was by far the best ABKC confirmation out of the litter. This girl is...

    We have a 6 mo old puppy and have been taking her on two walks a day for about 30 min each. A good part of the walk is on concrete sidewalks. We do run a little in the local park and walk on some dirt trails - this is limited during this time of year due to rattlesnakes. Josey's nails are...
