Question:

hi there!!!! i have a 2 1/2 year old jr, i trim her front nails at least every two weeks, and her back ones stay short from running so much. any ways my question is her quicks seem pretty long, someone commented her nails looked long and i had just cut them the day before, i always assumed jacks had longer nails because of digging, is this true?? i see dogs such as labs, sheperds and they tend to have thicker stubbier nails.

the second part of the question is can you shorten the quick buy keeping the nail quite short???

thanks for any answers you can give me!!!!!
