Nail Clipping Services in Selby
Whether for competition or just for comfort, clipping your dog’s nails should be a priority. Unless your dog lives an incredibly active life, and their nails are naturally worn down to the point that they don’t constantly reach the floor, nail clipping is going to be an essential step in their regular grooming. This is because nails that do reach down to the ground push back into your dog’s nail bed (ouch!), can tear and split – also very painful, and can also cause problems with your dog’s balance. And, if your dog takes part in shows then they’ll also find it easier to compete in agility tasks. Win-win!
So, as you can see, getting your dog’s nails clipped is far from being a purely aesthetic decision. Unfortunately, it can also be a rather challenging task: dogs become stressed easily, which in turn stresses you out, and leads to more danger of cutting into the quick and causing bleeding. Nobody wants to see a healthy activity like nail clipping turn into a source of further pain. This is less of a problem if your dog has clear nails – as you’ll be able to see the sensitive area more easily – however with a pet that has darker nails it can be very difficult to avoid.
This makes professional dog nail clipping services important for ensuring that your pet is comfortable, that the nail clipping process is entirely safe, and that the stress caused is minimal. Professional dog groomers can also show you how to maintain your dog’s nails at home if necessary – and we’re happy to discuss our practices with the dog owners who visit Fairview Kennels to ensure that your dog is getting the same great experience whether they’re at home, or at the kennels with us.
