Keeping your bullmastiff's nails short is very important!

Why it is important to keep toe nails short?  

If dog's nails are too long it  causes the bones/joints to break down. This is VERY painful.

Think: Pain every step the dogs takes. 

 The correct length for dog nails is when they are not touching the ground while they are standing.

 If you can hear them clicking on the ground or see them touching the ground when your dog is standing then the nails are too long and it’s time to cut them.
