So our dog (7lb Chihuahua) HATED getting his nails trimmed... and I mean HATED IT!!! talk about screaming! Crying, growling, and more screaming, he would start screaming the moment he saw the nail clipper. We would take him to the vet, and same thing ! We took him to PetsMart once and I saw through the window how they tied him up, and we saw how his neck looked from the leash being so high up and it looked like my dog was going to get his neck broken so yeah.... never again... needless to say, our nail situation was getting really bad..
So my girlfriend decided to do some searching around to see what we could do. She came across this nail trimmer and we took a chance. We followed some of the advise from other viewers so when we first got the item, we let him see it, she would put in his bed when he was laying down and we would just show it to him....
The next day we did the same thing, only this time we turned it on, the. Ail trimmer makes a slight sound but it's nothing too loud. So initially our dog would run away from it the moment we would turn it on. After a day or so of the same routine, we noticed he wasn't running away from it and the sound didn't scare him anymore, that's when we made our first move. We did ONE nail that night, as that's all he would let us do... the next day we did the same thing and so on... each day we were able to do 1 more nail....
TODAY! We were able to do the rest of his nails with NO HASSLE !!!! He sat on my girlfriends lap and I trimmed away... not saying he was "happy" about it, but he dealt with it... and just like that, no we have beautiful trimmed nails :)
If your dog is like ours, PATIENCE and PERSISTENCE is a big part of this process, but it pays off in the end 100% !! It was so satisfaying..
The only issue! Which is not a big deal (at least to us) is the battery life on this thing... ours seems to die pretty quickly, but whatever! We are FINALLY able to trim his nails without feeling like we are torturing our little guy!.... so worth it and we definitely recommend it!!!!
