Your dog and their feet

January 18, 2023 Posted by The Bibbyboo Team

Not every dog will let you trim their nails. The head of security at Lounge Around Lodge was a ‘Khy’ our Rhodesian Ridgeback was a terror. Sadly, he passed last year but his anticks live on in our hearts. He hated his feet being touched, and at 63kgs he could basically do what he wanted, when he wanted.
Thanks fully our French bulldogs are not so intimidating and can be picked up, hung in a sling, or nursed. That’s not to say that they are going to sit still!
If you do not cut your dog’s toenails regularly the blood line/vein in the nail will become too long and when trimming occurs they will bleed or it could possibly be painful.
It then becomes a much bigger job where the dog will need to be sedated the nails taken back to the correct length and then the bleeding stopped, this is expensive and avoidable.
Good housekeeping is to get into a routine, I start to trim the French Bulldogs nail from when they are tiny puppies. Good habits are formed over time and so the Frenchies get their nails trimmed fortnightly, bath day is popular and for the puppies I handle their feet as much as possible and any resistance is met with good grace and more attention.
