Why use this unique Dog Nail File?

Our dog nail file uses a very different approach to nail care for dogs.
If your dog does not tolerate traditional nail trimming devices such as dog nail clippers, dog nail grinders or dog nail files, the DiggerDog Nail File could be the solution. The dog learns how to file down its own, more problematic front nails.

How does it work?
Step 1

Place the dog’s favourite treat into the food compartment leaving it open and let your dog eat the treat. Repeat this several times so your dog learns that there will always be food in there.

How does it work?
Step 2

Put the treat in again but this time close the lid and hold the handle to remain in control. Leave a small gap in the lid to encourage your dog to scratch.

How does it work?
Step 3

While pointing at the file, use the same words - “scratch”, “get it”, “where is it” etc. As soon as the dog touches the file surface with its paw, immediately open the lid and let the dog eat the food.

How does it work?
Step 4

Praise and repeat the steps to reinforce the scratching. Make sure you have fun. This should be an enjoyable experience for you and your furry friend.

Testimo-nails :D

So happy with this purchase. We've only had it for 2 days but already my Weimaraner's very thick, overgrown nails are grinding down and she is getting the hang of the game very quickly. Finally an answer to an issue we've faced for years!

Gemma and her dog Winona

My dog is not fond of any nail clipping, grinding, trimming or whatever that has to do with his paws. This product has been life changing, I no longer stress about his nails. 5-10 swipes a night for a week and his nails are looking great. Try it out, I highly recommend it!

Khoa and his dog Roku

Nail trimming was stressful and expensive. My rescue hates having her paws touched, let alone nails trimmed. We tried everything and I eventually resorted to monthly trips to the vet. FINALLY I found this and it has taken all the stress out of nail trimming. Worth every penny to relieve the emotional distress for both me and the dog.

Maria and her dog Jessie

This product can be life changing. It has turned my dog's stress, fear and pain from nail trims into a fun game. What a great invention!!!

Jamie with her dog Sookie

So surprised and grateful that this works!!! No more sedative for my dog resulting in another failed attempt to get his nails clipped at the vet. He loves using and getting treats from it and it is a total bonus. It was difficult the first few times we tried to use it. But I’m so surprised and so eternally grateful that this works.

Clare and her dog Jack

Just wanted to say how impressed I am with the product - it is beautifully made & easy to use. I followed the video instructions & we had success on the first go. Now I get it out & he gets excited & thinks it's a game

Julie and her dog Harry


My dog had so much anxiety and she LOVES this! She thinks it’s a game and she loves putting her bone in there and playing with it! Thank you for this amazing invention!
