Bottom's Up: Tweeze and Trim Beneath the Feet

Bottom's Up: Tweeze and Trim Beneath the Feet

Pause for paws! If your dog doesn't require regular groomer visits to keep his coat clipped and nails trimmed, there are a couple things you should still be doing at home to keep him sore-free and unmatted. Even though short-haired dogs are fine after a good Furminator session, take time to examine your pooch's paws for two different purposes.

  • Grab tweezers! When your walks take you to pebbly, sandy, or unpaved areas, check between the pads for trapped pebbles, twigs, broken glass, or other nature items. If you spot something, or to dig around a lil better, grab some fine-tipped tweezers and gently remove things that don't belong.
  • Grab scissors! Even if your pampered pal's paws never leave the pavement, look at the hair growth on his feet. It's a good idea to trim the hair between the toes and on the underside with pet-safe shears to make it even with the pads so there's no matting.
