I was just wondering if anyone uses or has used Soft Paws for dogs? My mom uses them for her cats and they work great...and are so cute looks like the nails are always painted.

I've seen them used on cats quite a bit. I know they make them for dogs, but I've never seen them used. I just file the toe nails after I clip once a week and we don't have any problems.

Thanks...see my problem is I'm terrified of clipping thier names. LOL...I know its silly but I don't even clip my children's nails. I clipped my sons to short once and it nipped his skin when he was like a month old and ever since my hubby has had to do it cause I'm to big of a baby...but he put his foot down and said that I have to do the dogs LOL. So I'm thinking soft paws might be the solution

It is a soft nail cap that will keep thier nails form scratching you or the furniture they can be worn on all four paws or just the front two. They come in several colors along with clear.

Here is a link

they also have them for cats called soft claws I think.

You still have to clip the nails if you are using them...just it doesn't necessarily have to be as frequent. I suggest you have your vet show you how to clip them and just take the tips off once a week so you don't quick them.

my vet actually invented soft paws
i use them on my cats, and i have put them on parker...here is a pic:
they stay on even longer on dogs...sometimes u have to cut them off to put new ones on. and they totally prevent the scratching, and they are great for wood floors.

I love Parker's pic with the soft claws on.  Very classy. Where did you get them?  And does he try to chew them off?  :D

Do they get ruined when the dogs run on asphalt, concrete, and gravel?

I was just at my vets and they have a black cat that lives there and he had them on. All different colors, it looked great. My little Jill scratches at everything. I am think of getting them.
