A dog with very long nails can cause the entire tendon & bone structure of the foot to weaken and the toes to splay causing irreparable damage.
Paw and Claw Problems
Paw problems are common in lightweight dogs and dogs that are exercised on grass. Long nails are unsightly and neglected dew claws can puncture your dog’s pads, causing infection and long term damage to your dog’s feet.
Whilst some working breeds may benefit from having some hair between their pads for protection while they scurry through the undergrowth. We believe that most pets benefit by trimming as much hair as possible to help prevent grass seeds from taking root.
