The protective cap allows for gentle and safe operation leaving nails rounded and smooth. Won't crack, splinter or break nails. Filings are retained in the cap so there's no mess.
"Not so bad"
I found that I took the orange cap off and skipped using it at all. If you're careful you can use it without that. I only try to sand my dos's nails one paw at a time and skip a day. Don't hold the nail on the sandpaper too long or too hard cause it heats up and the dog will freak. And don't try to sand against the nail; just let it rest with the rotating sandpaper underneath and use little strokes. This is also good for your own toenails if you're older and have a hard time trimming them or can't reach them.
"Dont waste your money"
the only reason i gave this unit one star is that i couldnt post this unless i gave it one star.That being said I bought one of these trimmers and was totally not impressed.They are very under powered and if and if you want a bang for your buck,buy a dremel
"have one, retired it"
good product but i found that with larger dogs it takes forever to use. i have a apbt (pitbull) an she let me use it on her. the price here is awsome wish i had gotten mine here insted of a superstore. i did find another one that i like more its called gentle paws. its more like what a groomer would use an its much faster an u have more control.
Okay, so I had a few friends who raved over this. I picked it up and found that 2 out of my 3 dogs had no issue, but the 3rd freaked out. I couldn't figure out why, because the groomers regular grind all of their nails. Turns out - it rotates at a different velocity and it makes a different pitch sound. Depends on your dog as to whether that bothers them or not.
"scared my dog"
even though I followed the advice (about not scaring my dog) it didnt matter how hard I tried, this products absolutely terrifies my 2 dogs. I bought it when my puppy was 4 months old, and tried using it gradually, pretending to use it while it was off, etc., but she was still scared of it. I was lucky to pull it out of the cabinet without her tail going between her legs and her physically shaking from fear. I threw this is the garbage. I unfortunately did not buy mine from Jeffers (they absolutely have the best price anywhere). So I guess I would have felt better about throwing it away had I not spent the $15 on it elsewhere. My dogs have just gotten used to me clipping/filing their nails with a regular clipper. Oh and I tried it on my cat too. NEVER again.
"Buy from Jefferspet!"
If you want to try this PediPaws, first read my other review, then BUY from Jefferspet.com! They have the VERY BEST PRICE ANYWHERE!! I wanted to try it, but it was too expensive elsewhere, I got mine here, and I think its a very handy item, worth the $!!!
"Smooth out nails"
I use this product to smooth out the sharp edges of my dogs nails. You need to follow directions, so not to scare the dog at first. It is easier than filing the rough edges. My dogs got used to the buzzing. Big big nails don't fit in cover, so I took it off for his.
