Depending on the colour of your dog's nails you should be able to see a vein running down the nail, do not cut the vein. If you are unsure ask a vet or a groomer to show you how.
If you do cut the ';quick'; (the vein) you can use styptic pencil or talcum powder to stop the bleeding, also hold your thumb over the nail to stench it.
When cutting nails rule #1 is longer is better. If you cut into the pink part your dog will bleed. Just cut off the sharp tip and trim around it...less is more. If you cut too short and he bleeds you will need to get a powder found at a pet store to clot the blood.
There are simple steps on the proper way to cut your dog's nails. These steps can be seen in this site.
