Default frequency of nail trimming?

My mutt has black nails that grow shockingly fast. I trim them once per
week with nail trimmers that have a guard so that I don't trim to much off
and get the quick. I'd like to get them to a shorter starting point by
trimming more frequently for a little while. How long does the quick take
to withdraw and how frequently can I trim? Also, is there such a thing as
nails that are too short?

If you use a Dremel, you can trim every day if you like. Whether the quick
will recede at all is dog dependent. I fought that battle with Pan's
ultra-long nails and had to give up for the sake of my sanity (and blood
pressure).

Also, is there such a thing as
nails that are too short?


If there is, I'm yet to see it.

I know exactly what you mean, Lynn - I have a black Scottie with the
quickest growing nails ever - and they're black, so it's a real
struggle!

I wrote about it at

- you may find it helpful to know we all struggle with this one!
