MrSnappy Posted December 5, 2008 Report Share Posted December 5, 2008 You know those little nail cover things they make for cats so they can't scratch up your shizzat? Has anyone used them for dogs? My condo has hardwood floors and they are NICE hardwood floors and my dogs are scratching up the floors! I clip nails regularly, and started an aggressive nail clipping campaign when I moved in here, but I can't ever get them short enough that I cannot hear them clickety-clicking across the floor. I've put down as many area rugs as I can without making the place look like a flea market. I don't want to ruin this man's floors, as he was very kind to let me move in and go to bat for me with Evil Strata Council That Hates Dogs, and I also don't want to have to refinish them should I move. So at the risk of being kicked out of the Border Collie Glee Club, I'm thinking about Soft-Pawing the suckers so they don't scratch up the floors anymore. Piper's will, of course, be pink. My real question is ... do they work? Will they stop scratching the floors? How easily do they come off - my dogs are rough on their bodies outside. Also, I read somewhere they stay on for about 6 weeks, which is a long time to go between nail trims, and then the dogs would have long nails again. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I have been trying for two months to train those quicks back, but it's not working, and Piper is about ready to tear my face off. She hates nail trimming at the best of times, but once a week is a recipe for Pipersplosion. RDM Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
