Hi Everyone!

I was just online looking at the Pedipaws pet nail trimmer and was trying to find reviews when I came across Peticure...a supposedly stronger version of Pedipaws. I was wondering if any of you pet lovers have tried these gadgets and love/hate them? I know this is a beauty forum, but the reviews you ladies write are awesome. Any strong feelings on pet nail trimmers? Very Happy

Here is the website for Pedipaws: http://www.pedipawstrimmer.com/

And here is the site for Peticure: http://www.peticure.com/index.html

I have a beagal and Yorkie that need nail trimming, but the Yorkie hates anyone to touch her feet. The beagle is still a puppy and even though he doesn't like his nails done he hasn't developed such strong feelings like our ancient yorkie. Any reviews or tips would be apprieciated! Thank you!!

Deanne

This is a great topic and glad you ask the question because I would like to hear comments about this as well. I have three dogs and take them all to the groomer for nail trims and would love to be able to do it myself. I look forward to hearing some advice about these devices.

Me too.

I have an Airedale Terrier, and would love to be able to trim his nails at home instead of going to his vet to do it.

Aren't airedale terriers the best? I had an airedale terrier. There are so many great airedale videos on youtube.

Airedale babysitting puppies:

Airedale obedience (for some reason I really love this one, the song really works):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcSqyKUjjYU

I've watched this airedale do the "lay down" command so many times:

Nimue,

I could not agree with you more.
Even though my mom has a German Shepard and my daughter has 2 pitbull mixes. And they both think theirs are the best.

Our Airedale just runs the house the way he considers right, but we love him no matter what he does and he knows it too: if he feels it is time to eat he comes over to his bowl and pretends to eat from the empty bowl, the bowl makes sound " poor doggy, the bowl is empty" - just a very subtle hint. He taught all our friends and relatives that the entrance to our house is not free, that we have a very neglected and deeply suffering soul awaiting treats right at the door. No one now comes empty handed. You can only imagine the rest - will suffice to say that my husband cooks for him and he now sleeps in our room, that he expects the rugs or throws on the floor and considers it beneath him to lay down at the bare hardwood floor.

Sorry for going on, but you touched a very soft spot.

All the best to everyone.

Wow!! I have never seen these gadgets before - I want one!

The Peticure looks to be bigger and more cumbersome because it has different size settings. I have a chihuahua, so don't know whether to get the smaller Pedipaw one. I hope they sell internationally.

That's funny, I was just ordering the Peticure for my son and his fiancee as a Christmas present. I start accumulating stuff a little early, as I find them. They have 3 dogs (Chocholate lab, bassett hound and a corgi-sptiz mix they rescued from a pound and a bengal cat). I think this could come in handy.
They have the soft paws on the cat, which are so cute.

Very Happy I know everyone thinks that *their* dog is the best, but so what. Airedales are great- they're so smart, but also playful and independent. Just because they understand what you want them to do doesn't mean that they'll do it- that's why I loved those obedience videos- you could see when the airedales just got bored and distracted. I love the lay down one because the dog clearly knew what was asked for, but wanted to do it her/his way, in a fun way. So the airedale waited 3 seconds for effect, then did a belly flop, I loved it. That's really cute about how your dog asks for food.

Thanks!

He is unbelievably cute, and such a big difference since we took him from Airedale Rescue society - he used to eat the dog food, and be done in 2 seconds; after 2 weeks he refused to eat it unless it was spiced up with Parmesan cheese. I though he was not feeling well, and took him to the vet, explained the problem and had heard from the vet (cute young guy) in soft whisper - " I wish someone would spice up my food with the Parmesan cheese..."

Well he stopped eating dog food completely after one month in our house ( he is more stubborn then even I am, and that is something), so now my husband cooks for him. Go figure.

Sorry for a long post I just wanted to say Thanks and not to hijack the thread.

All the best!

Thank you Keliu! Those reviews were exactly what I was looking for. It looks like lots of people have heard of these devices but not a lot have used them. Hmmmm Question
Sounds like there is a little cult following for the Dremel in the pet nail trimming universe. Hehe Who knew?

I like the idea of using the Dremel, but not comfortable with the skill necessary. I think I might go with the peticure petite for my pets. I like the idea of the mulitple holes for different nails. I still need to research more on this dremel (but it does sound up our DIY alley, eh ladies?) Laughing
Here is the link from some lady who used her own drill on her pet. bahaha
http://homepages.udayton.edu/~merensjp/doberdawn/dremel/dremel.html

This was from the link Keliu put up. Very interesting. I just like the idea of a safety for my pets paws. But I'm with you....I'm getting tired of the Pedipaws spam in my email....even though that is what reminded me I saw this on TV. Bhahahahaha!! Embarassed

Thanks for the replies ladies!! You all are the best.

And for the record....Beagles rock!

I ordered the Peticure elite for my grandogs and cat today. I'll let you know how they like it, although Christmas is still a ways away! Very Happy

I've actually gone off the idea. I have a similar device to the Dremel that's for filing nails so I thought I'd give it a go on Lulu (my chihuahua). She just totally freaked!! I also felt that it was going to take allot longer to file down the nails than it was to just clip them off with the traditional dog nail clipper. However, I would really like to find a replacement for the nail clipper because the last time I did Lulu's nails I nearly took off her whole paw! (Which, in truth, is probably why she freaked when she saw me bearing down on her with the sanding device).

We have two whippets (the best Smile) and find for our needs the dremel works very well. I've thought of trying the peticure but it is a bit pricey and doesn't seem to be available in Canada...
