First, this is an ideal time to get your dog to the groomer (or do some grooming yourself). With summertime hikes, swims, and romps at the park coming up, this is the perfect time to get your dog’s hair and nails into shape. If your dog gets hot in the summer, or if you live in a warm area, consider a short “puppy-style” cut or other trim as recommended by your groomer or vet. Short hair is less likely to pick up burrs, twigs, and dirt, so it’s practical to keep your pup’s hair trimmed even if heat isn’t an issue. Overgrown nails can lead to scratches on the furniture, walls, and human skin, so keep them trimmed. And dew claws that aren’t trimmed can get snagged on logs, gates, and other things during playtime.
