I was wondering what type of nail clippers work best on Pugs. I use to just take her to the vets, however, since I just moved I haven't found a vet yet and just wanted to do it myself when she needed it.
Also, has anyone had any luck with training your pug NOT to jump up on you when you come home. I wouldn't care but her little claws hurt like heck... plus, she hurts my daughter.
We've tried Pedipaws and the dremel and we can't trim Tinker's nails, we go to the vet, so I'm no help to you there.The jumping stops if you can turn around quickly enough, I know with big dogs you can raise your knee but I wouldn't do that with a small dog.

I wouldn't recommend the raised knee with any dog. It's hard to teach pugs not to jump up. It seems to be very natural behaviour for them. The best thing is probably to do what Jackie says and just turn your back and ignore if she jumps. Make sure it doesn't earn her any attention.

Good luck with the not jumping up. Our Zoey is horrible for that, and turning your back doesn't work, she gets you there too. Those little nails really hurt when she is excited to see you.
Leo is four months old and we have taught him "up" and " off"..we used a stool at first and treated when he puts his paws up on it then another treat for off..I find this "off" invaluable when he is standing on his hind legs begging for attention..he does not get any attention until he gets "off" our legs..then automatically sits now and waits for the treat..although sometimes I think he jumps up just to get the "off" treat lol..smart little bugger
As far as nails i use the pedi-paws they love it my one would lay back and go to sleep,with jumping well that is hard as i have seniors well we know how that goes lol sorry.
