Unhappy Nail Trimming 101

How short should I be trimming nails? And how often? The nails are all a bit different. There is that one long one in the back that I'm guessing is for digging, and the fronts are a fair bit smaller.
Pickle is amazingly easy to clip, wierdly enough it has to be done in the bathroom. If I hold her in the bathroom she starts her sniffer up in high gear and forgets about her feet.
I'm just never quite sure how short to trim, I read about accidentially cutting the quick and am terrified of the idea.

Just above the quick is where I trim the nails to. I trim them probably about every few weeks.
