DIY Dog Nail Cutting Using Your Own Tools or Dog Nail Clippers

If you are handy, you may be wondering if you may use some cutting tools from your existing tool chest to DIY clip dog nails. Some of tools you have may work, some will not. To save you time, I will share with you which one worked for me, but most importantly I will show you how to test it out because you don’t want to hurt your doggy.

If you are not handy, you may buy specialized dog nail clippers. A lot of people are afraid to trim their dog’s nails. I will show you what features you are looking for and how to use the clipper.

This easy DIY is the cheapest way to make your dog happier and healthier. It is so simple it will only take a few seconds to make. It would turn your dog’s meal into a challenging game, reducing the risk of vomiting, gagging, gas and belching. Not only it is fun but also it improves digestion and helps prevent bloat.

Dog Clippers Comparison – Oster and Andis ProClip


We tried 3 different clippers on our own dog. The clippers differ in price, but compared to sending your dog to the groomers for at least $35 each time, investing in almost any DIY clipper will save you plenty of money — and gives you another way to spend quality time with your dog 🙂 Just be aware that some clippers will cut very slowly, some may be noisy, and some may generate more heat.

How Can Dog Owners Save 1 Million Plastic Bags Per Year? Please share.


If only 1400 other dog owners do this, we can save 1 million plastic bags every single year. And why stop there? If we all joined together, we could save 5 million, 10 million, 100 million plastic bags each year. Help save our planet – one dog poop at a time. 🙂

Our Adopted Dog-First Vet Visit, Part 2

In Part 2 of our adopted dog’s first vet visit, the vet discusses more lab testing, vaccinations and basic grooming. Lab tests are for heartworm and various possible parasites. We learn more about heartworm and other parasites, fleas, ticks, ear infections, and gingivitis.

We have adopted a dog from the shelter. About a week later we took him for his first vet visit. Well, we did not know if this was his first visit but certainly it was our first.

We recommend you prepare questions in advance and take notes during the visit (we would have forgot a lot of it had we taken this video). Sample questions are:

* Discuss your pet’s dietary habits. It is always helpful to briefly discuss your pet’s diet and feeding schedule. As your pet grows, nutrition needs change and if you are not sure about these, ask. If your pet has digestive problems, ask if there is anything about your pet’s diet that needs changing.

* Ask about dental care and grooming challenges. Good teeth and basic grooming both promote your dog’s long-term health and well-being.

* Bring records of vaccinations and any medications the dog has had. Even if you know the vet has the records, it is good to also maintain your own. Bring them to the vet every time and have the records filled out. This helps you to remember what has been done, when the next vaccinations are due and it is also handy if you change your vet.

* Tell the vet any health or behavior concerns you have, anything you’ve observed that you think might be unusual or you don’t understand. Do not hold back, as not reporting all the symptoms can lead to an incorrect diagnosis and your dog might not be fully helped.

Choosing A Rescued Dog From The Animal Shelter, Part 3


This is Part 3, we decided on the first dog, a male 3-year old poodle mix. The staff member of the shelter went through the final paperwork. We are given some initial care instructions, the microchip was already implanted, and another flea treatment was given before leaving the shelter.

A new chapter has started for this rescued dog. We are also facing new challenges to take care of this dog. Stay tuned for more videos.

Choosing A Rescued Dog From The Animal Shelter, Part 2


This is Part 2, about a second dog we interacted with in the shelter. In contrast to the first dog (which was 3 years old, male and quite energetic) in the part 1 video, this dog is a female poodle/ lhasa apso. She is 1.5 years old, super sweet. We really had a hard time deciding which dog to pick. How likely is it that the dog’s behavior will change upon leaving the shelter which is after all a difficult environment for the dogs? The staff member of the shelter explained a lot of things we did not know. We liked this dog and left $30 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit. We have one day to make a decision. In the next video, we will show you our final decision, so stay tuned.

We can’t save all the the abandoned dogs, the adoption center says that they can’t keep all the dogs either, so the question is: if we can only pick one dog, what factors we should consider?

It should be the one you like the best with the least trouble both short term and long term. The original video is quite long. We managed to trim down quite bit, still the current version is not short, because there is just so much information we received. If you are thinking about adoption, please take the time to study the subject, because it is pretty hard to separate from your dog once the dog has bonded with you.

What special considerations are there for the dogs from the animal shelter? When do you need to visit the vet or have dental work done? Why does the dog pee everywhere? Other issues may be longer term. For example, what will you do if your future girlfriend, boyfriend, or child turns out to be allergic to dogs – you may wish to consider a dog that is less likely to provoke allergic reactions.
