    As ‘mymatejack' says – no problem to clip the pup’s nails to get the sharp ends off. At the breeders place, they would have been done at least once a week.

    I have a pair of these that I use on my pup’s nails to start off with –

    Manicare Toe Nail Clippers - With Nail File - Chemist Warehouse

    Then graduate up to ones like this –

    Total Care Dog Care Nail Clippers each - buy total care dog care nail clippers each online at woolworths.com.au

    Just be careful and only take the tip off. It is a good idea to get the 'precious pup' used to this - the earlier the better.

    Make sure you practice playing with her paws and claws and handling and give her treats for letting you inspect each claw...

    And then you will have to do over with the clipper being around. Some people use a dremmel to sand their dog's claws - tho you need to be careful if they have long hair around the claws (feathers).

    again - you need to practice getting your dog used to it.

    I spent quite a few months getting my dog used to the clipper but I had the guillotine style and they suck - they squeeze the claw before they cut it and she'd jump every time whether I cut too much or not.

    Now we go to the groomer and get her to do it while I feed treats. Takes about ten minutes, piece of cake. She even has a hydrolic lift table to make the dog easy to get at.

    don't forget to have some corn flour handy in case you cut too far.

    Best to cut little bits often rather than chomp them all the way back...

    This site has some good diagrams and explanations about claw trimming
