I have been looking up how to clip dog nails from different sources, and I have come to the conclusion that either a 45° or 90° cut is ideal. I understand that. What I was wondering though is if there was an ideal way the clippers should be held, or does that even matter? Is it okay to cut dog nails if the handle is horizontal (assuming the dog is sitting upright)? I guess a better way to word my question is... Does it matter if scissor style clippers are cutting from the sides of the nail (when handle is vertical), or is it more ideal for the clippers to cut the top/bottom of the nail (when handle is horizontal)?
