Dog Grooming and Nail Trimming

Your dog’s nails should be trimmed regularly to prevent them from getting too long, which can be uncomfortable for them to walk with and runs the risk of a nail getting caught in something and tearing or breaking. It is also important to keep your dog’s ears relatively clean to prevent infection. Many dogs won’t require much manual ear cleaning, but you should check their ears regularly to ensure there isn’t any wax or dirt building up.

How often should I cut my dog’s nails?

Every dog is different. Some will need their nails trimmed every month, while some may go longer. You should regularly check their nails to make sure they aren’t getting too long and eventually, you will be able to make the perfect nail-trimming schedule for your dog! You’ll know it’s time to get them trimmed when you hear them clicking on the floor. The more often they get trimmed, the shorter they will be able to be cut down to, which will also increase the length of time until the next trim is needed.

How often should my dog have their ear’s cleaned?

Just as with nail trimming, this can vary greatly! Some dogs are prone to ear infections and will require a weekly ear cleaning, and others may never need an ear cleaning. If you are unsure, you can start with monthly ear cleanings and adjust accordingly.
