I would get him/her to a vet. They might have a fungus infection.

Your dog must be suffering from oychomadesis which causes nails to slough, peel, or chip away excessively. Take it to a vet.

I agree with the other posts that if they look like they are rotting, it might be a fungal infection. If they were just dry and splitting I'd say apply a nail oil to help moisturize and block out infection.
