    the first time I cut the quick by accident I felt so bad. I almost panicked but it stopped. if you are very and active and walk your dog a lot, you don’t have to cut as often because of the nails hitting the pavement. It is naturally filed down.

    If its a female lab .. they shed more than males and SUMMER is here so it is time for them to shed a LOT .. and also it can be shampoo you are using and food …does she loose her hair to the skin or just shedding??? .. if its spots , it can be flea bites ! I really hope that its just regular shedding .. try taking the dog to the groomer , and c if the shedding continues as much !

    we had a lab shaved every summer to prevent that massive hair loss and keep her cooler.

    hes probably just shedding. labradors and dogs with long coats tend to shed A LOT. you should buy a de-shedding comb to get all dead hair out.

    IgorL021 – you need to get your dog accustomed to being handled and get him to make the association that nail clipping is a good thing. A quick search on here or google will help you find what you need to know.

    I have a 5 pound pom,who turns into a snarling beast,although he is fine with other grooming.
    It upsets me greatly that i have to pay the vet £15 to do it.

    I have 2 pit bulls and a rhodesian ridgeback… Its funny because one of the pit bulls that I have is scared of damn near EVERYTHING, but she has almost ZERO resistance when I clip her nails.. the other two dogs arent scared of anything, but they give me the most trouble trying to clip their nails.. its weird
