    Also, they make little non slip pads you basically glue to the bottoms of their feet. I have clients (I'm a groomer) that have used them and said they worked well.

    If the toenails are touching the ground, it can start to distort the toes and cause pain when they get long enough. The quicks (vein in the nail) will grow out to the length of the nail and you can't...

    My Arab was like that until he was nearly 5. He just kinda grew up one day and quit it. In the mean time I just picked the bit he fussed with the least (JP Korsteel oval mouth eggbutt) and ignored it.
