Picture of Supplies You'll Need

Toenail clippers-There are two main kinds of clippers:scissor style and guillotine style. I prefer guillotine because I think they are easier to use and give a cleaner cut. No matter which style you choose, the sharper the clipper, the cleaner the cut and the faster the job gets done.

dog treats-commercial treats, string cheese, hot dog bits, whatever your dog
