Can i use an emery board on my dog nails?

Best answers

They work equally well, so use what you are most comfortable with.

Make sure you purchase the correct size for your dog.

If your dog won't tolerate either type of clippers, you can try using a nail grinderβ€”an electric tool that sands down nails.

An emery board or nail file can also be used.


Some veterinarians offer boarding, and there is one giant advantage and several disadvantages to this.

Obviously, a vet's staff is best suited to providing extensive medical care and supervision, if your dog needs that.

And, finally, vets' kennels also house sick dogs, potentially exposing your dog to disease.


For all breeds of dogs, most dog kennels require the animal to be at least 12 to 17 weeks (4 months) old.

The reason for this is because all certified kennels require incoming puppies to have had their first round of adult shots at 12 weeks, followed by the second round at about 16 weeks.


Some boarding facilities only let dogs out twice a day for a few minutes at a time.

If this is something your dog is used to, then it might not be a problem.

If you want your dog to get a bit more exercise you should look for a place that is able to walk your dog three or more times daily.


Board and training is a service offered by a trainer where the dog is kept overnight at the trainer's facility or home for a certain period of time.

We don't let animals on board (not even Greyhound puppies). The only exception is legitimate service animals riding together with a disabled person. For more information, see our Customers with Disabilities page.

We can board large and even aggressive dogs, no one else will board.

However, many of our clients choose to board with us when they need to go out of town, as we keep up your dogs routine and walk them daily; most boarding places don't offer walks or charge extra.
