So what does the length of your dogs nails have to do with his overall health? Turns out, everything. Just as with us, the foundation of our structure are our feet. If our feet hurt, everything hurts. It also impacts their posture and the health of their joints in addition to the health of their feet.
Oh, but cutting those nails can be a horror, for you and for your dog. I am guilty of not wanting to trim my dogs nails and letting them get too long. So, a few weeks ago I enrolled in a 8 week course to learn how to trim my dogs nails with no force. It has been an eye opening experience. I have learned so much so far. It is put on by Big Dog Mom, Stephanie. Watch this eye opening video. Then, get on her waiting list for when she opens it up again later this year. I highly recommend this course. Your dog is counting on you.
