Rated 4 out of 5 by midge nice, but instructions are lacking
I bought these today and was able to trim my dogs nails without minimal trouble. I think some of the people posting about how small the opening is failed to see that there is a little switch to unlock the clippers and allow them to open more. There's nothing in the instructions that explains the locking mechanism. I almost gave up on them and went back to the store but I was finally able to work it out. It really is something that should be mentioned somewhere on the packaging, and I think it would make this product a lot less frustrating for many users. This was my first time ever clipping dog nails and this was a great tool that allowed me to do it in very little time with little effort.

These are not sharp enough to properly cut my dog's nails. While the handles feel good to hold, the blade does not easily cut the nail and often splits it. I tried to hold the nail very still to cut, but the nail would still twist and when it would cut through the nail it more often split the nail than cut it. I would not recommend this product and stopped using it before I finished all my dog's nails to ensure that I did not end up splitting a nail badly and hurting him.

Rated 1 out of 5 by The Flo Do Not Buy!!
I bought these for my 3 month old kitten and the experience was horrible. They barely cut through the nails and opening is so small it took a lot of effort (while he was fighting me) to get the nail in. His nails are tiny so i'm not sure how anyone uses these for their larger cats!?!? I thought I was spending a little extra to get something good. I'm returning these tomorrow!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Beaglefan Poor quality blade and design!
1st use out of package, blade acted dull and was splintering dog nails. The guide is a little too thick making it difficult to see location of cut. The best part of these cutters are the grips, extremely well designed and comfortable. Its just too bad the blade is so cheap. My 6 year old made in USA metal cutters still work better than these.
