"Calmed my fears"
I have an old blind dog whom I never had to cut his nails until he went blind. I tried the other type of clipper that chops the nail, but his nails wouldn't fit well in the hole and he absolutely hated it! With these clippers they slice because of being two bladed and he is much calmer and doesn't try to pull the paw away. My advice to the person who had a bad experience is to search online for a tutorial or video on the correct angle to cut the nail. It made all the difference for me and my old pal.
"DEFECTIVE AWFUL ITEM!!!!!"
Tried these thinking that they would protect my dog's toenails from being cut at the quick. WRONG! The so called safety moves around when you're trying to cut the toenail. My dogs toenail got sucked in and was cut WAY too short. This was all because the thing that is supposed to keep the toenail from being cut too short kept spinning in circles. Will be contacting Jeffers about this as well!
The little guard on these clippers make them the perfect nail grooming tool. I was concerned about hurting my mini-dachshund because he has black nails making it impossible for me to determine where the quick is. The girls at my vet's office refused to do it as he would bang his head against the counter in panic. I don't need to worry about that now as the guard keeps me from cutting too deeply. I just give him a couple of natural calming chews that I also bought here at Jeffers, wait 20 minutes, put him in my lap and start clipping. He doesn't like it and probably never will but we can get through it quickly and easily without all the fear for either of us.
"Peace of Mind"
I have been purchasing from Jeffers for over 10 years. A few years back I purchased this exceptional nail clipper after trying two other types. I can truly say I now have peace of mind when clipping my Bostons nails. The safety feature never lets me cut too short. I have just recommended again this clipper to a new acquaintance giving them my latest catalog.
