Hello!

I've finally convinced my golden retriever that nail cutting isn't so bad (we accidentally cut the quick once).

However, the quicks are too long, preventing me from getting the nail as short as I'd like. How often should I cut the nails to get the quick to recede?

Thanks,
Laura

Each time you trim it will start to move the quick back so I would try trimming at least once a week. Last time I had gotten a dog that had really long nails. I trimmed every five days just a bit at a time till I got them to a nice trim length. I usually do it when they are tired and willing to relax I sit on the floor with them brushing and petting them and work my way around their feet. If you have a nervous dog do one or two toes then stop and pet and relax them then do another. Its how I taught a really nervous rescue that nail time was a good time.
