How long before dogs can walk on concrete?

I've noticed that many pet owners bring their dogs to the vet. I'm in the process of doing this, and my vet wants to have them walked on concrete, as she knows dogs can have problems if they are on grass and not in the shade. The thing is, I don't want to put my dog on concrete until he gets older. But the vet said that some of the problems I have read about are with young dogs. How long until a dog should be on concrete? I know this is not a scientific question, and I don't really want to put him on concrete if he'll have a problem with it later on. But I don't want to miss out on things he may need to be on it for, if I find out too late.

The reason I ask, is when my vet said he wanted to walk him on concrete, she also said that he needed to be taken to the groomer to have his nails cut, and that's the only time I thought of taking him to the groomer for him to be trimmed.

If your dog has been walked on concrete, and he has had no problems, then it doesn't seem necessary to be on concrete now.

Thanks for your opinion.

It sounds like you should keep a closer eye on it in the future.

A friend of mine is a vet who owns and runs a dog grooming business. He says that a dog should not be taken to the groomer for a nail cut until at least one year of age.

He says that the problem is that you need to get your dog used to having his nails trimmed when they're growing in order for him to be used to it. Otherwise, if they do it to him when they're old enough to pull their nails, they'll fight you and try to bite you when you try to trim them.

It's just a fact of life, in his opinion.

It really depends on the dog, but some dogs are extremely sensitive to being trimmed in their nail area. If your dog is one of those, you need to keep a close watch on his nails, and only trim them when necessary. If he's fine with it, you don't need to worry about it.

I agree with the vet. In my experience, it's not the best time to have them trimmed. You may get him used to it, but there's no guarantee he won't be aggressive when it's done to him later.

I know there are some breeds that are very sensitive, especially to nail trimming, but we have not had problems with our little chihuahua and I don't plan to take him anywhere, until we do have issues. I'm very surprised at the recommendation to take them somewhere.

I don't understand why dogs have nails at all. If you look closely, dogs' feet are very sensitive and their nails need to grow down so they won't cut into the foot.

That's actually true, but some dogs do have nails that grow down. A lot of dogs also have nails that grow in different directions, such that the nails are parallel to the surface of the foot, and the part of the nail that extends is long enough to scratch. The problem is that most dogs do not have nails that grow like that, so if you cut them, you will make the foot look nasty for a long time.

You should take your dog to the groomer for nail trims, and take your time, and do it when he's a little bit older, so that you get the best results.

This is exactly what I was thinking. It seems to me if you want to make a statement you need to take him to the groomer and have a vet check him out. I would wait a year, but with all these new concerns I may have to wait longer. I'll see what my vet says, and keep the nails trimmed if necessary.
