I have a papillion and I was always afraid of hurting my dog when I cut his nails,so I seen these and bought them to give them a try and yes I did what I didn't want to do and cut his nail to short and made him bleed.So they do not do what they said they would do.

Got these after experiencing a bad service at a pet-store. Until now I have not clipped any nails from a dog so I was a bit hesitant that I would clip too much but with these I felt comfortable. I can now clip my siberian husky's nails while she's napping and do them every so often. She's more relaxed and is getting better at sitting still.

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 .
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!!!
sharpening & care information by frog13 from pahoa, Hawai'i06/21/2013
I love my clippers, but they are cutting off. Like weak scissors. They are supposed to be lifetime guaranteed. How do I get them tightened up, and sharpened. I live in Hawai'i, climate is very hard on metal, rust in the spring, on the blades, etc. Any advice is appreciated. I groom at my home, and would like to think I am able to care for my equipment, and make it last in a harsh environment.

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.
