    DefaultTrim between the toes

    Do y'all trim the fur between the toes and foot pad?
    Granted, not complete cut, but just trim back a bit.

    I did it once getting ready for a show, and having those short stubbly hairs between their toes really drove them nuts. Now, I just trim the wispy hairs that stick out. Tough way to learn a lesson!

    I trim it as even with the pad as possible. I have ceramic tile and a dog with HD, so to avoid her having to slip and slide all over the place an occassional trim works..................

    That is *exactly* why I still continue trim down to the level of the pads (usually when I'm trimming nails)- it really helps to avoid slipping/sliding dogs in the house. Otherwise, horse-play, bitey-face, and butt-tucking in my house (tile floors) tends to end up with skidding/slipping dogs who pile into and break furniture, like the doors on my entertainment center or my SU's grandmother's buffet . It works quite well!

    In the winter, with a wet snow on the ground, I used to trim so that snow or ice balls wouldn't form.

    But now, in those conditions, I use Musher's Secret and that prevents it so I no longer trim.

    No, trimming nails is enough of a circus act. I cannot imagine having a pair of scissors hear their feet.
