    Roly's dew claws are really long cause they dont touch the ground, im really scared about cutting them cause they're black and I cant see where the blood enters.

    Great article. I just did my boxer's nails, although he does it regularly with concrete paths pretty well but some of them were still too long.
    Thank you very much for the photos and everything.

    I cut my 3 dogs nails every week. I didn't do Mish's from day one & just once I cut a toenail too much & she bled. It was a constant struggle with her until my dog's massage lady told me to cover her head with a towel. She's still not real happy about her weekly "manicure", but with using the towel over her head, it's all over in less than a minute.

    I cut lex's nail not that long ago and i cut all i could fit into the gillotine style clippers which was about 2mm of nail (he has really fat nails :P).

    And the nail i cut bled, i didnt do it anymore because he didnt like it..
    The nails looked long to me, and even cutting 2mm off it bled like crazy.

    I felt so nasty, i sat with him with tissues over his nail untill it stoped bleeding

    So i guess my question is, what's a nail that's "too long" for a 41kg amstaff x doggie?

    So i guess ill just leave them alone for awhile, i think because he's such a large dog he has long quicks.. he has concrete to run on during the day..
    and when i walk him i try to keep him on the road..

    I could be wrong but I think the longer you leave it to cut nails the longer the 'quick' grows IYKWIM. If you regularly trim just a small amount of nail off there shouldn't be a problem. It is much more difficult on dark nails though. Another reason to have white dogs

    I have tiled floors and if I can hear the dogs nails on the tiles, it's time for a trim.

    Yep, you're correct. And with dogs with dark nails, it's a real pain getting them down the tiniest bit at a time once you've let them go for a while.
