I would bypass the pedi paws and just get a real dremel, but a small one and use small sanding belts. The pedi paws is so big and clunky (IMO) and its really hard to maneuver around their tiny paws because the head is quite large. And its too week for my Dane's big feet. Someone gave it to me, and I've been using it but its not great. I'm going to invest in a real solid dremel after the holidays.

i bought one of Ebay as Diefie hates his nail clippers with a passion.
i watched the video, read all the instructions and followed them very carefully and......
well.......how can i put it........ummmmm

Diefie has decided that the hated nail clippers are the lesser evil.
i clipped his nails yesterday and i am covered in scratches from where he panicked on the last one. (he sat very still and quiet like a good boy up till the last second)

imagine trying to put an octopus into a jar.
an octopus on amphetamines and caffine.
on octopus with sharp nails.

*sigh*

got side-tracked, sorry.
my verdict on Pedipaws?
too loud, too heavy and too cumbersome.
not worth the money.

I have tried to do my danes with a dremel and they hate it so I have never tried it on the chihuahuas and I wondered if the pedipaws was any better for them [obviously not ] ha ha I won't bother now I think thank you.

My Sheltie was fine with it,went to sleep while i did it.2 of his claws grow so long and the quick is far up the nail,so have to be very careful,this does it very slowly and will stop if you put too much pressure on the nail,i give it 8/10

I use them on both my pups and they're fine with them. They work great and I'm less paranoid about clipping them too short. After they reach a certain length they won't touch the file anymore.

Well you have to introduce to a dremel (or even a nail clipper) VERY slowly if you want a cooperative dog, in small steps and with yummy treats, so that they associate it with good things. My dane was a pup when I started though, but I never did slow intro with him because he didn't care haha. If your guys weren't introduced to it properly they most likely will be frightened of it.

The chis still dislike it but one will very begrudingly let me do it the other throws a fit. I'm still working on it though, and I think when I get a less cumbersome dremel it will be even easier. The pedipaws is just clunky and annoying. And that "special" top they have on it is pointless, I just take it off.

I bought the Pedipaws about ten months ago and was too lazy to read all the instructions. I've used the regular clippers though. The Pedipaws was $20 and now it's down to about $12.99. Because I do have the apparatus, I decided to buy the replacement heads (today, coinciding with this thread, lol) because if I didn't buy them now, they might not be available later unless through the company if not discontinued. I do want to learn to use it and give it a shot at least.

I was wondering if anyone has used this one which has an electric safety sensor.
