My dog Ares is terrified of getting his nails clipped with a regular clipper. Last time I cut his nails with manual Clippers he screamed bloody murder. He gets so scared he growls and sometimes nips at my hands so he's been wearing a muzzle to do his nails since he became an adult. He's a dachshund mix and his nails are black and hard so I can't see the quick. I bought this product today as a last resort to avoid taking him to a groomer to do something I can do myself. It was everything I hoped for. I did one paw with his muzzle on (growled at first then was quite) then gave him a break. Then I did his other paw and he was so calm and not growling so I kept his muzzle off. For his back paws he laid on his side on the couch in silence and let me take care of him. This is totally changed everything because now I can take care of him without scaring him or myself or either one of us getting hurt. I highly recommend this product especially if your dog is terrified of getting his nails done like mine was. It is pricey but if you don't mind grooming your own dog it is totally worth it. The only negative I found was that the little bands run out quickly it seems and the band slowly slips off of the end of the tool. The bands I used still work but when their new they're much better so I do wish that they were more durable.

It took me about 3 days to get my dog use to the noise of the grinder. Feeding her chicken each time it was on, worked well with her. By the 3rd day she would let me touch the grinder to her nail and she had no reaction. Now I am able to file her nails with no problem. I love the fact that it has speed control and it has a nice long cord. I also like the fact that you can get replacement parts directly from Oster at a low price. I would definitely recommend this product to other dog owners.

What a waste of $45. I have a cheap battery powered grinder that works much better than this product. Grinded one nail for almost 5 minutes with minimal results. Pretty disappointing.

I have had battery operated nail grinder before, but after a few uses, the performance was poor. This nail grinder not only performs well, you can control the speed! My dog's claws look and feel better.
