Snip off a small bit of the end of each toenail.
Using either the guillotine or scissors-type clippers, place a tiny bit of the nail in the nail clipper and snip.

Stop any bleeding immediately.
If you cut the quick (often called quicking), you’ll have an unhappy dog and a bloody mess. The quick bleeds a great deal, so if you cut it, you need either a nail cauterizer — a tool that stops the bleeding by applying heat — or styptic powder you can apply with a cotton swab. Have a damp washcloth at hand ready to clean up styptic powder and blood as necessary.
Quicking hurts a lot, and most dogs remember the experience long afterward.
