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.
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.
