Ralph looks like he will recover just fine with his new toy in paw! I think Lexi's nails grow fast. When she is groomed, they trim and then dremel them. I then take her back in about 10 days to two weeks to have them done again. The dremeling saves my leather furniture, something I wish I would have figured out before she was six months old. You can sure see the scratch marks in certain lighting.

No real comment on the quicking - it happens, but as a groomer they should really take smaller shaves off the nail until they can see the end of the quick. One small nick I understand, but several - no thanks.

For those who are new using a dremmel - just be aware that you may also be quicking them - the heat from the dremmel acts as cautery to stop the bleeding. Often times you wont even see any blood but your dog may pull away because of the pain. Just a heads up if you are new to using a dremmel.

I have one dog who you can quick with clippers and she wont even notice (the poodle of course), although Ive only ever caught just the tip. The pitty on the other hand is a huge wimp, she doesnt even like it when you look at her nails!!

And on the greyhound comment - my greyhound had LONG quicks, regardless of how many times I trimmed her nails. Luckily they were clear nails but her quicks were always right to the end. Never understood why they didnt receed like the other dogs!!

Perhaps I am too judgemental. I did check several greyhound sites like this one:

Regular Nail Maintenance: A Must! | Greyhound Articles Online

With my Aussie I was very lucky. He did not like his nails trimmed so he would do it himself. He found a spot in the basement where he would scratch and wear them down - all four paws. It did not take long he would do all this paws every few days. The groomer told me what a beautiful job I did on his nails and I told her it was Zack. I think she thought I was kidding but he always kept his nails very short. This was a relief to me as his nails were black. For Swizzle I have a guillotine but I am going to get a Dremel.

I don't know about greyhounds, but I know Jack Russells are meant to have a bit longer nails so they can dig when they go to ground when hunting. My JRT always had longer quicks and I kept up on the trimming. But they were not insanely long. They would just barely touch the ground when they needed to be done.
