Try taking them for a long walk on the sidewalk after they have a fresh manicure and pedicure, walking on the pavement will help to file their nails down. Taking your pet for more frequent nail trims will help to reduce the length of the quick, the blood supply within the nail, therefore allowing for shorter nail trims with each visit!
