Human clippers usually won't work on a dog's nails.

There are also files that grind the nail down quickly which may be less stressful for your dog.

All nails, including the dew claw, need to be trimmed.

The dew claw can grow and curl back in causing pain, even though it isn't used the same way as the rest of the nails.
