Dew Claws
by: Donna

Never remove dew claws. They were originally for use to help climb in the mountains. Like our fingers/toes, we need them all even though sometimes it doesn't seem like we do.

Simply, like the rest of her nails, keep them trimmed regularly (every two weeks to a month) when you groom the Pyr. Pyrs should actually be groomed daily to keep on top of it and then a through groom once a week.
