In order to use the , the person who is performing this grooming task should make sure that the dog is in the proper position that is comfortable and secure. Before operating the nail clipper, squeeze the handle of the scissors to ensure the blades work properly. Once the dog is in a comfortable and secure position, place the paw of the first foot in the hand opposite of the one that is performing the trimming. Hold each toe separately making sure to apply enough pressure to hold the paw in place without making the dog feel uncomfortable.Select a trimmer that cuts cleanly, and as quietly as possible so that they are not hurt by the cut or startled by the clipping sound. There are only 3 types of dog nail clippers; guillotine style, scissor style, and pliers style. Some also have a safety stop which only allows a small portion of the nail to be cut so that you do not cut the quick. I wish I could say that one style is better than the other, but it really comes down to personal preference (I personally don't like the guillotine style because it takes longer to get into position, and some of my Chihuahuas are intimidated when it's placed over their nails). Chihuahua toe-nails are are small so you have to be more precise than with a big dog, so make sure that you select a style that you are comfortable with.Then, holding the scissor clippers at a right angle to the shape of the toenail, trim the nail to the desired length, which by a general rule of thumb is approximately two millimeters from the quick of the toenail. Be careful not to cut the nail too deeply, as clipping the nails too close the quick can cause discomfort and even injury to the dog. It is not as easy to see the quick of the nail with dogs that have dark toenails, so making sure that the cut placement in the proper position is essential. The nails on the front of the footpad require trimming more frequently than the nails that sit toward the back of the foot, so trimming the front nails of the dog happens more frequently.Can you use Human finger-nail or toe-nail clippers to cut your dogs nails? Technically yes, but it is strongly advised against. Human finger-nail clippers have more of a pinching and crushing action than a cutting one, and are quite frequently very dull. While this technique works good enough for our thin, flat nails. It will not work well on a dogs thick and round nails.
