To use, ensure your dog is calm and still. If your dog is new to having their claws trimmed, it may help to have another person present to hold your dog. Hold the dog’s toe firmly, keeping it still. Place the guillotine clipper over the very end of the claw, and close it to remove the end of the claw.
Important: Remove only the very end of the claw. Cutting too much of the claw can cut the quick (a vein that runs through the claw) causing pain. For dogs with dark claws, it is difficult to see the quick, try looking from underneath the claw. No matter how long thg the claws are, proceed with caution and cut only the very end of the claw off. Long claws should be regularly clipped by small amounts to help the quick recede.

Grooming tips: Dogs that are new to grooming should be introduced to it slowly. Begin grooming sessions when your dog is relaxed, if possible, after they have exercised. Use tools gently and avoid tugging on the skin or on knots or mats. Give your dog plenty of reassurance throughout the grooming session. Pause or end the grooming session if your dog becomes agitated or shows signs of stress. Keep grooming sessions brief to begin with, and increase the length of the sessions as your dog becomes used to grooming.
