Before I order this does anyone own one and does it work. It seems to be battery powered and mimics the Peticure. My little dog is so afraid of his nails being trimmed by the traditional nail clippers. Prices on ebay mirror the ad.

I hope it is ok to post the link. I don't sell them just want to know if the hype is true.

I would have your vet grind your dogs nails first to see how he reacts. A lot of dogs don't like grinding either.

I talked to my dogs' groomer about it, well not this particular model, but the Pedicure one, or rather electric dog nail filers in general. Anyway, she said she does not recommend it for most dogs -- especially ones who are already very sensitive to having their nails trimmed. Think of it this way, when they are getting their nails cut by you, the groomer, or vet, it is pretty quick. Snip, snip, snip and done. With the filing appliances, each nail has to be held in the filer for many seconds. Your dog has to be very cooperative to use it.

That said, she said I was one of the few clients she would say has dogs who can handle it. They are not overly paw sensitive, and very gentle dogs who I can easily control and handle (miniature poodles). She also said that you should start by having their nails trimmed with a clipper and also, the filing needs to be done frequently. Not just once a month or so when they are groomed, but weekly.

I haven't bought one yet, but am considering it, cause when they jump on us, especially if dh is shirtless, their nails can scratch.

Nail grinders

I have been using a cordless Dremel tool to do my dogs nails every week for more than 6 years. This is the one I purchased. Just take your time, do not lose your patience, and all will be fine. It has 2 speeds, and comes with multiple attachements. I have only changed the drum once in 6+ years. The battery pack now needs to be recharged far more frequently....but, it is going on 7. Replacement parts, if ever needed can be found almost anywhere...it is a Dremel. Being cordless, it is very convenient.

Has anyone used these on cats? Nail trimming our 2 cats' claws is always a challenge in our house and requires the two of us. I've been thinking about getting one of these. Thanks.

It looks and sounds like a device that would quickly end up in the drawer/cupboard with all the other new ideas that didn't work.
If a dog doesn't like its nails being clipped with conventional clippers I really can't see it being any keener on a device that takes longer and makes a noise. I can only see it being useable on a very complaint pooch, and if it's that compliant it will let you use normal clippers anyway.

Our problem is that the nails are black which makes staying out of the quick difficult even for our vet. Don't see how grinding would help this situation as some of the ads suggest.

I bought the Peticure. It comes in 2 versions. My dog is small so I bought the less powerful one. She does not like clipping, the squishing is what she doesn't like. This grinding works fine for her. I use the dremel sanding disks.

Peticure also sells a head that fits a Dremel,for the person that already has one.

David (my DH) also uses a cordless dremel device to do Heidi's (the DDog) nails. She doesn't care for it much, but she sure doesn't mind it nearly as much as when someone would quick her with the nippers.

My husband says his podiatrist uses a sanding device VERY similar to a Dremel on the callouses of his feet. He LOVES it!:banana:

Update on Dremmel

I just wanted to thank you for the info on the Dremel 761-03. It does a good job and is better than the standard nail clippers that my little dog dreads. Bought it on Amazon as I could not find it in the stores. The grinding noise did not bother him and it leaves his nails smooth not jagged.
