Dog nail trimming
Did you know your dog's nails should be trimmed regularly? While some folks do this to save their floors, it's actually important for a dog's health to keep their nails from getting too long. If your dog's nails are clicking on or scratching the floor, they may also be affecting your dog's gait, balance, and posture, and can contribute to arthritis and other issues in the dog's old age. In the worst cases, nails curl around and dig into the paw pads, especially on dewclaws.
Some dogs naturally grind down their nails when walking, but smaller dogs, older dogs, less active dogs, or dogs that just plain have fast-growing nails usually need them trimmed. Often this can be tricky because most dogs don't like it and may squirm or complain. However, with your help to hold and comfort your dog, and my knowledge and experience, I can trim most any dog's nails to a comfortable, short length without hurting them.
***I cannot guarantee a perfect or complete trim, because I don't know your dog. However, the only things that have made it necessary to stop before trimming all a dog's nails in the past have been getting bitten, getting kicked in the mouth by a Great Dane so hard I bled, and times when the dog's human was not comfortable with how the dog was responding. If for any reason we can't make it happen with your dog, I am willing to come back and try again (except in the case of a bite) or figure out a 'refund' or alternative service exchange. Note: the "unit" for the simbi price is one full dog, not paws, nails, or time.***
Training & Qualifications
My previous job was as a grooming assistant at a pet supply and self-service dog grooming shop. Many of our customers came in just for the $10 nail trims on even the most finicky dogs. Some days, I think I trimmed the nails on over a hundred paws.
