Nail Time

"Jagger" showing us how it's done

The Rockstars grooming has begun, they are having their nails done with baby nail clippers. Trimming them early ensures they will not scratch up Csilla's belly or each others eyes, in addition, daily handling gets them used to having their feet examined and makes for a well and properly socialized puppy. Once the pups are old enough we introduce the "dremmel" and pups and owners get lessons on dremmeling before they go home. Then their owners will also follow up on appropriate weekly nail care.

The Vizsla really is a wash and wear breed and the only thing owners really have to focus on as far as maintenance is "nails". Note: If you can hear a dog's nails on the floor - they are too long!
