Happy Feet

One of the most important things you can do as a dog owner is to keep their nails nice and trimmed. Long nails are not only annoying (clicking on the floor) but they also can do damage to the dogs feet. Trimming them with proper nail trimmers once every few weeks is really the best way to keep them short and healthy!

Here at the daycare we like short nails for a variety of reasons- the first reason is to prevent injury. In the past we have had a few broken toe nails- and believe us when we tell you they bleed- alot! Keeping them short enough so they don't snag on the flooring is a quick, easy way to prevent a painful injury. Also, if the dogs do happen to jump up having long nails makes it a little painful for us!

We often trim daycare client nails just as a courtesy- usually Amanda and Jo will get the nail clippers out once or twice a week and "make the rounds" for any longer nails. You can also book your dog in for a nail trim- we charge $10 and it takes just a few minutes.

As a special we are offering FREE NAIL TRIMS to all daycare clients for the whole month of September. Your dogs nails will be trimmed when they come for their regular visit- no appointment or schedule is necessary! Just mention that you want them done and we'll add them to the list!

I totally saw that Moe's nails were cut once after daycare and thought I was crazy! Good to know!
