Default Nail clippers

Hi guys just wondering which type of nail clippers you all prefer for your chis? We have a normal pair which we use for our Staffie, but i feel they are a little to big to use on Chi Chi. Chi Chi hates having his nails trimmed and i wondered if a smaller pair would make the job easier?

I took him to the groomers last week to get the job done but he still wriggles like mad although did eventually calm down ans she managed to get them cut.

How do you guys find the job?

I use a grinder. Works excellent and I keep Brody's nail very very short.

I use regular (people) nail clippers.



When I take them to have them done, or they do it at the Vet, which isn't often since I can do it myself, they use cat clippers.

I have a pair of small dog clippers from Target, they are the guillotine style. My dogs are really laid back about nail clipping, so I don't have any wiggle issues.

I use the cat clippers like the ones pictured above, I find them a little easier because they are on the side & if the dog is sitting on your knee it is easier to get around them IYKWIM?

@Brodysmom whats a Grinder?? ie; is it specifically for pets claws?

I also use regular human nail clippers but it leaves the edges quite sharpe a grinder might work well in that case?
