|there are two things ill recommend for the quicks. one of them is cutting the nails weekly. have you ever tried taking her to the groomers to get them done? many dogs are worse for their owners for a lot of things, including nail trimming. sometimes, just the fact that t is a person they dont know is handling them will make them more weary of their behavior. so i would try that. if you dont want to do that, then having someone hold the dog while you trim them will help. if your dog is over 20 pounds, i would also recommend gettikng the dog to lay down on his side, have someone hold him down and talk to him, then clip away. sometimes if they cant seee it they wont freak out as bad.
the other thing you can do is take him to a vet, have him sedated, and have to vet clip them to where they should be. you still would have to keep up with the clipping, or else the quik will grow back out again. no matter what you do, you pretty much need to find a way to cut his nails.
as far as ears, you need to buy some ear cleaner at a pet store. sueeze a couple drops into the ear, then take a cotton ball and clean only what you can see. you can use a q tip to get in the crevices, just be really careful of your dog moving his head. if you see a little wax, or dirt, that is pretty normal. if the ear is red, swollen, or gunky with red or yellow stuff then the dog should go to a vet.
