If you’re using clippers:
So you’ve cut their nails – now we want to repeat the exercises with the file, exactly the same way. Filing the nails prevents them from having those sharp edges that can get caught in clothes, carpeting, toys, etc and either snag or split.
Nothing worse than being scratched by a dog whose nails have just been cut and not filed! You want the nails to look like bullets – no sharp edges!
Watch Salinger enjoy his manicure more than anything in the world – he’s almost falling asleep as I do it!
If you’re using the dremel:
You’ve got two in one so you don’t need to use a secondary tool to file and even the nails out! Just be sure that the edges are all smooth and the nail looks a bit like a bullet. Otherwise those edges can get caught in clothes, carpeting, toys, etc and either snag or split.
Keep up the good work!
