    I hate cutting my dogs nails. Always scared I will hit the quick and so it makes me anxious. I have been taking them to the vet for trimmings. At $16 a pop for 5 dogs this adds up. I purchased this almost a year ago and only tried it a couple times before putting it in the drawer thinking it was just a waste of money. But today I just got up the nerve to give this devoted effort before making another vet trip and after watching some dremmeling videos.
    Wow is all I can say. What a great starter dremmel like tool for me to get my feet wet.
    I noticed a few things when looking at other reviews:
    If you are using it correctly… it will work on your dogs nails. If you are holding it wrong, it will feel like it’s taking forever to make any progress. Same goes for if you are holding your dogs paws incorrectly. A firm but kind hold that keeps the nail steady is needed. If the paw is flopping all over, it’s not going to work well and you risk getting the paw pad.

    There are no directions so it’s kinda a wing it thing in order to get a good feel for it.

    The price is really good. The size is small and easy to maneuver. If you are looking for power enough to totally cut the tip of a nail off speedily like with a strong dremmel. This doesn’t pack that type of punch. But I think that would be too much for me right now. If you are looking for something that gives good control and a nice pace, especially for a beginner and something pretty quiet, this is great.
    For reference I have 5 small dogs. The smallest a Pomeranian at 6.5 lbs and the largest a chihuahua who is 11 lbs.
    Today I used this on my small pom who has always hated nail trims ever since puppyhood. She really just doesn’t like when we hold her paws to cut her nails. But she did pretty well with 3 of us working with her. One holding the flashlight at her nail from below to watch for the quick (just learned that trick – lifesaver). Me with the Pet grinder and then someone holding her so she wouldn’t scamper off. I also used a manual diamond glass file when needed here and there.
    I gave her treats for her cooperation. I was able to do a much better trim than even my vets have provided thus far. I also focused on the alternate cut line angle as well, verses the traditional cut so that quicks will recede and I can go even shorter next time.

    A fabulous item to give a try for your dog. If the noise does bother your pet, do some conditioning. I did try the item with our new puppy today also. He was not digging that sound at all. So I just used clippers on him. But I’m going to work on getting him comfortable with it and hopefully by the time he learns to sit still he will feel comfortable with it.

    Two of my dogs are shih tzus and I’m going to use the fruit bag trick (mesh from the bag of lemons to slide their paw into to keep hair out of the way when using this on them).

    Not sure how my older chihuahua is going to take to this. He is a rescue and he doesn’t like his feet touched much and will bite when annoyed. So I will tread lightly with him.

    I am not sure how this would work on large breed dogs with really thick nails. But worth a shot. Amazon always has a great return policy. Like that the nail guard comes off but I found I really liked having it on. Battery lasted great during the nail filing.

    If you are wanted to try an electric file or were thinking of a dremmel but just don’t feel you are ready for that yet. This a great first step. So much more control that nail clippers. No splintering, no cracking, not cutting the quick. Dare I say it was actually fun to use and I feel very accomplished with saving us some money at the vet for sure.

    If this came with a replacement head and a built in light I would for sure give it a 5.

    I got this little tool because the reviews were very good and almost all agreed about how quiet it is. Now, if I could teach my dogs to read the reviews, (1) They would agree that my having left the Nail Grinder in their beds for several days would induce them to treat it as “No big deal,” but neither dog cares that the foreign object was around for a while because it is a matter of principle that nail-trimming is invasive and evil; (2) They would understand how all the other dog owners’ dogs desensitized themselves to the Nail Grinder and became therefore Good Dogs. But they do not read and, as terriers, they have their own firm opinions.

    Nevertheless, patience and perseverance (doggedness?) works. Both dogs have had their nails ground and no one was traumatized. Afterward, Gracie (who is 16) sniffed at the Nail Grinder and gave the equivalent of a shrug, and Ollie (who is 6) sniffed at the Nail Grinder and, while it was still running, gave it a little lick. So my issues are with my furry housemates and not the Nail Grinder. I do have these suggestions for the manufacturer or marketer or whoever approves the final packaging. Please say how long the Nail Grinder takes to recharge. Please say what the bluish light on the charger means: does it mean “charging”? does it change color or go off once a full charge is achieved?

    And I have this suggestion for first users of an electric dogs’-nails tool. Use it on yourself first. If you have never used a little grinder or a dremel tool, the best way to learn how it works and how it feels is to try it on a willing subject. I suggest the nail on your big toe for a first trial (because the toe isn’t normally visible). Then, when you use it on your dog, you will be the expert and will exude confidence. And you will: you can do some quite delicate trimming on your toenail once you get used to the Nail Grinder, and your dog will recognize that. Under “How To Clean,” the package says “eraser”; an art-gum eraser is best, just a small version of the large blocks that craftspersons use to clean their sanding drums, rasps, files, etc. Just grind the edge of the eraser, and all the tiny pieces of nail-substance will come off the grinding wheel and render it more efficient for its next use.

    Conclusion: worth the money, does the job, is as quiet as an electric tool can be expected to be, good for human pedicures, too..

    Like compact low noise, my dog sat still for 30 mins whilst attended the front nails I was impressed by that alone. I need to find spare wheels for the future but having difficulty as I have contacted supplier asking exactly this but no response
