. . . that a dog's nails are easiest to cut right after a bath, because the water softens them?

Bulldog Nail Care

Proper care of your Bulldog's nails is important for health and comfort. In most cases you should cut your Bulldog's nails at least once every two weeks. Make sure the blades of your clipper are very sharp. Replace them as soon as they begin to dull, as it can be painful for your Bullie if the blades are dull.

Be sure not to cut into the quick. If you are lucky enough to have a Bullie with white nails, you can easily see the quick and avoid cutting it. If you are cutting black nails, a good rule of thumb is to cut just until the curve in the nail.

After cutting the nail, you may be left with a rough edge. It is probably a good idea to use a nail file to smooth the edges. You'll really appreciate this while playing!

Note: Black nails tend to wear down faster than white nails from walking pavement, and may not need trimming as often.
