I have never clipped a dogs nails in my life,and so I was a little nervous,that's why I chose these clippers with the guide.
It gave me an idea of where to cut ,but I still cut one nail a little short because the dog yelped.
I put flour on it and a little pressure and it stopped instantly though. I just need a little more experience,I believe,but the clippers are very good at clipping .
Can't use by Lorna from Seattle, WA12/10/2010
I think these are a sturdy design, but the blades are not sharpened to a thin enough edge, so they work more like a nutcracker. You have to put a lot of force on them to get through the nail, and my dogs don't like the pinching. Might be okay if your dog has soft, white nails.
Quick, smooth professional nail trimmers by scottie from Towson, Maryland04/27/2012
I have a pair of these that I have had for 10+ years.
They still cut quick & smooth, no snags, easy to view while clipping and protective back stop if you need it. I was a dog groomer for 5 years in my late teens, early 20's and I have gotten used to professional instruments. Nothing at pet smart would satisfy me so I went looking for these! So glad I did, a great, long lasting, quality product! I'm sold!!!
