Even though the traditional nail trimming tools (clippers, grinders and regular nail files) work for many dogs, especially if the dog was introduced to them from an early age, there is still a large number of dogs who will simply not tolerate them. They will not even allow their paws to be handled. Many of them have had bad past experiences, especially if the quick (blood and nerve supply in the nail) was cut during attempted nail trimming.
Rescued or neglected dogs in particular often have a bad association with this grooming task. For these dogs, even the site of nail clippers will send them into a highly stressed state. The only option then may be to sedate the dog at a vet clinic.
Dog nail grinders may be a good alternative. But once again, many dogs do not like them – they are scared from previous bad experiences and will not allow their paws to be handled. Also, the noise and heat may frighten them.
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!
