Trimming the Nails of a German Shepherd Dog


Specific for a German Shepherd How we do trim the nails of that kind of dog. I personally prefer this kind of scissor like cutter. That works fine for me. Let’s talk about the length first. How long should they be? They say as long as the hair… They are slightly sticking out, where the hair ends. In this case we have to be a lot shorter. But you can’t cut this off all at once, we have to cut a little bit every week… … until we are at the desired length. Those are really way to long. They could be half the length. At this step i show how to position yourself and the dog when you do this. And this works best for large dogs. Not the little ones! You exercise first. so that the dog allows you to hold the paw. This may take a while until the dog gets used to it. Don’t bend the legs sideways! Like i show here. The scissors you hold in this angle. Watch exactly how i do it.>>>That’s a good boy!
