The Digger Dog Nail File Story
When I got my beautiful Doberman Zana, I wasn’t aware of how difficult it may be to trim a dog’s nails.
Zana wouldn’t even let me touch her front paws, so when the time came, I decided to take her to a Vet. It was immediately obvious that even there it would be a difficult task. Despite the three of us – the vet, the nurse and I, trying to restrain her, it was almost impossible – she ‘fought for her life!’ Eventually the vet managed to clip one nail but Zana became even more distressed, the nail was bleeding and I stopped the procedure.
One day I was having a cup of tea in the garden and was watching Zana digging for her hidden treasure – an old bone. When she came back to me, I noticed that the nails on her front paws were shorter. She had given herself a little pedicure! Why couldn’t I use her natural digging instinct to let her trim her own nails?
As you know, the majority of dog training is done by using food rewards. I was going to try this for my idea! My mum Irena Sr. and my partner Damon loved the idea and we all started working on this new project. After months of trial and error, finally a break through!
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!
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!
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING
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!
