we all strive to keep our dogs in the best health possable...How many cut toenails at 3-4 weeks old? the gyps tits catch a beating from those shary little claws when pups are nursing.. tits be red as all get out and i have seen some gyps snap and growl at pups.

personall--i cut mine and keep them short and the gyps dont show any concern with them nursing dont avoid it at all

I did that at 3 weeks for probably the first 10 yrs always trying to get them as bitches tits were so tender. Then i quit bothering and the small curls wear off on the concrete quick as soon as they are mobile. No issues and no sore tits either. I dont know. Current litter is worn down. no issues

But i'm on concrete. Never trimmed a nail in decades.

I will add though that I purchased an above ground to put puppies in from ages 3mo. - 9 mo. just because at those ages they are a PITA on concrete smashing their stool into it and wash up is a job. The nails wear back down pretty quick. Pros and cons to both concrete or above ground pens.
