Anyone use a nail grinder on their dog around Park Ridge? Thinking about trying on my golden retriever. I hate the clippers and have always had the vet do as I am so afraid to use the clippers myself. If you have one you like what is the model?

Depends on how good your dog is with clippers. My old dog hated the grinder and freaked out because of the noise but my current dog isn’t bothered by it.

I have one that tolerates it and one that freaks out.

I used one and it was so much better than the clippers - bought Pedi Paws one

We bought a Dremel and got the extension. This allows us to put the noisy part behind our back.

How big of a dog is it?

Took my dog a little bit but doesn't mind it now. I would only 1 paw at a time so I didn't freak him out. And after each session, I'd smother him with kisses, then play with him for a bit. Seems excessive, but it worked. Helped to give him something positive after something that can be scary.

Started my girls grinding with a dermel when they were 8 wks old. Start out by letting them smell the unit. Next day turn it on and rub their backs with the housing so they can feel the vibrations. Then the next day attempt to grind only 1 nail and have plenty of treats available. Next day do 2 nails and so on. If your dog has hairy paws use a knee high stocking. Put their paw in it and have the nails pop out so you won’t have to be challenged with their paw hair. Works really well. Hope you have success. You will be saving yourself lots of money.

Ann Weber I have one if you are looking to buy. I only tried it once as they seemed ok with it at the groomer. I wasn’t able to get the job done at home. Basically brand new.
