I don't think they stitch paws but you would definitely want it cleaned out profesionally and, as Kim said, your vet may well put him on antibiotics to ward off infection. Ask your vet if it is okay for Monty to lick his paw -- if not, you'll need to do the "collar" thing. Also, you may need to figure out how to cover that paw when you take him outside until it heals.

I actually saw just two weeks ago on Animal Planet, a Weimaraner's paw that was cut while running on the beach, the vet took her to surgery to stitch up her paw.
It may depend on the severity of the cut. Better be safe than sorry.
