has anyone seen the commercial for this...Peticure dog grooming supplies, dog nail clippers, dog nail care, peticure pamper your pet
my dogs seriously hate getting their nails trimmed and not only do their nails hurt me, but I can only imagine that I need to keep their nails as short as possible with a baby around.
Anyway, just curious if anyone has thoughts on this.

    Honestly it sounds like a crap shoot to me. It could be the best device ever made or it could be complete crap.
    It was so hard to clip my old dogs nails I could only have the vet do it because she would literally shake and fidget and not let me do it at all. So I think its worth the money to see if it works. If it doesnt than you can always return it right away.

    well our big issue, is that our boy really hates it and the people at Petco said he bit the groomer once, so we try to avoid other people doing it, he kicks so much that I am afraid he is going to kick me or the baby. Maybe I will ask my vet next time I go in.

      Christine, asking your vet may be the way to go. My mom has a super high strung black lab. She HATES having her nails cut, so my mom has to take her to her vet for this. Sometimes the techs can do it and she's not too bad. But sometimes they actually have to sedate her to cut her nails...it's quick though, and probably a lot safer for the tech and the dog.

      Our dog doesn't care to have her nails done either..my FI has a strange way of getting her to sit still. He takes a newspaper flyer, folds it, and just sits it next to her -- she still doesn't like her nails cut and will all but sit on my lap while he's cutting (all 65 pounds of her..ha!), but at least she doesn't run away. Funny thing is, she's NEVER been hit with anything in her life, much less a newspaper flyer. She's a silly girl!!

        Have you tried a dremal (? spelling)tool on his nails? Usually it's the clip that makes it hard, but with the dremal you can "file" their nails down and avoid sharp edges like you would have from clippers

            Can you find this at a normal pet supply store like Petco? I once clipped my poor little doggies nails to short and one bled. I'm terrified to do it now and she's scared too.
