Dog Nail Clipping

Keeping your dog's toenails healthy and trimmed is a vital step in the grooming process. K9 Toronto believes dogs' nails that are kept short and clean, mean your dog will be happier and healthier.

It's a common misconception that clipping dogs nails is necessary only to prevent them from damaging your home. In truth, cutting dogs claws not only lessens the damage to your home, it prevents them from accumulating dirt and germs. Regular dog nail clipping ensures that your dog's paws stay healthy by avoiding painful broken nails, as well as keeping them free from dirt and bacteria. Clipping your dog's nails regularly will help avoid infections, and spare your beloved companion the pain and suffering he will endure from neglected, cracked, or broken nails.

K9 Toronto understands that cutting dogs claws can be traumatic to both owner and animal. That's why we offer dog nail maintenance as part of our mobile grooming services. Some dogs remain docile during claw trimming, but some are not so well behaved. Our expert groomers have experience dealing with nail grooming for many different breeds. Their gentle touch and patience will make trimming your dogs nails just as hassle-free as regular grooming.

For your convenience, we've provided a suggested schedule for dog nail clipping. By sticking to the proper time frame for your particular breed, you'll find your dog will not only remain healthy and happy, he'll do less damage in your home with regular claw trimming. For more information about the care and maintenance of dog toenails, give us a call at 647.591.0523.
