    Always wondered if other dogs did this...

    Advertisements
    Ginger, our Aussie Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix, has always had a habit of trimming her own nails! When they get too long for her own comfort, she lays on the floor, and chews them down so we don't have to clip them. She'll lick around the area and then start chewing. Our older dog, Cinder, refuses to have her feet touched so obviously trimming her nails are a problem. But at times, if they're laying close enough, Ginger will try to trim Cinder's herself! Of course, she never succeeds, but she still tries.

    Has anyone else ever seen their dog do this? We've had Ginger at least 6 years now and it still amazes me that she does it!

    R.I.P. Matthew Armijo and Cinder. Forever in our hearts.

    Can't say my pups do this. My dogs hate to get their nails filed. I have the pedi paws file thingy. They HATE it.

    But my Jack Russell does lay there and lick her paws clean.

    I think my dog does..he licks his paw like crazy and then like nibbles and pulls on what I'm assuming are his nails

    My shih-tzu has never done that.....
    Even though I loved him, I needed more. I stood up for myself and walked away. Even though it broke my heart

    My neighbors lab does this!! She'll trim her nails and their other lab doesn't like to trim hers or have them trimmed so the other dog tries and tries but fails

    I don't know if Lena is "trimming" her nails or not but she does frequently chew her nails, like a teenage girl

    Yeah she hates her nails clipped too but I have noticed her doing the same thing. She just chews on them every so often.
