I have a great dog with a good temperament. However, to cut his nails and then spend a long time filing them takes a lot of time and patience on both the dog's and dog parent's part.
Even with walking outside the nails are still sharp. I saw an ad for the Pedipaws but searching on the internet, it was an offshoot from the Dremel and Peticure.
Not having much experience with these devices, I compared the prices of the 3 models by Peticure. There are three models: The Petite, Elite and Power. The Petite and Elite come with 3 filing bands. The Power which operates through a plug has 20 extra bands, is lighter and 2 times more powerful. Given the fact that bands are $15 for 20, there is no reason to get nothing but the Power model (except for recharging capability).
The 2 sheets that accompany the model are poorly written. You have to refer to the company website to watch the videos on how to operate this. Putting the thing together is not intuitive. More explicit directions would have been better.
You need to remove the plastic ring at the base of the head to attach the guard. You push the lock button to untwist the mechanism to place the drum on the unit.
The noise is a moderate pitched whirring sound. My dog was not frightened by it. There are preset ports that the nail is placed into. Stabilize the pet's finger and use quick strokes to file the nail. After some awkwardness of the operator, me, I got the hang of it. There are videos on the website to direct you. Dewclaws (at least on my dog's) were impossible to file. The guard prevents but does not entirely eliminate the possibility of hair getting caught into the mechanism so be careful.Read more ›
When I turned on the motor using the variable speed control I noticed the motor is rather weak and produced very little or no torque\kick starting off, unlike my Dremil. This indicated Peticure skimped on the quality of the motor probably to lower production costs. Did I mention it's made in China? So much for keeping jobs in America.
I read all the directions, fully charged the battery, and filed my dogs nails accordingly. The first three paws sanded fine, only taking off a little and not spending more than 3-5 sec per\nail as to not burn it. While finishing up on the last nail the Elite just shut down\died. I thought the battery charge was spent but usually that is indicated by a slowing motor; it simply died.
I thought, "Don't tell me the motor has already burnt out?" Being doubtful that this couldn't possibly be that big of a piece-O-crap I charged the battery again. I plugged the battery back into the Elite and guess what, the motor is fried. I was barely applying pressure to the nail while filing at the time the motor died! My suspicion of a cheap motor was correct. I turned my Dremil on, which is the same size, and the difference in sound\power\torque is worlds better than the Peticure Elite. This would never happen to my Dremil and I've ran it on lesser duties for minutes.
The Elite apparently isn't so "Elite".Read more ›

When I saw the ad on TV for the Peticure, I decided to order one on Amazon. A year ago I had already ordered the dremel, a popular rotary grinder to shorten my dog's nails because my dog couldn't stand traditional nail clippers. The vets didn't usually do much more than a tiny trim of his nails either because of the way our dog acted. Although the dremmel was a definite improvement over the traditional nail clippers, debris from the nails would fly all over and it was loud and it skipped over nails quite a bit.
There is three peticure models, peticure petite for small dogs and the peticure elite for all dogs and cats, and the peticure power which has twice the power and is smaller than the other peticure models. I ordered the peticure elite for my medium sized german shepherd mixed dog. I was surprised out how well it worked. The Peticure is quiet, cordless, and all peticure models include the safeguard, which helps catch nail debris and secure the nail to the grinder.
One slight downside is that you will have to replace the Peticure filing bands once in awhile, the Peticure Elite comes with 5 bands. The price is good, you can buy a refill of 10 more on Amazon for $9.99. Each band lasts a few sessions each after you get the hang of it.
To ensure you get the best results possible with your Peticure, I have added the video on acclimating your pet to the Peticure.
