Rated 1 out of 5 by sandyclaus3057 Not happy
I read all the reviews before making the decision to buy these clippers. I should have taken the advice of the negative reviews and not purchased them. My Pekingese hates to get her nails clipped so I need them to be sharp and accurate so as not to hurt her as she moves around a lot. Well after trying to clip her first claw, I did not continue. As one pet owner stated, instead of cutting the nail, it crushed it, leaving her claw jagged and uneven. Another major problem is that Pekingese claws grow curved instead of long do it is extremely important for the clippers to make a clean, straight cut. The guard on these clippers also don't work well in the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by theScrapPack Very reasonably priced and works great for my anxious 30 lb dogs
This nail clipper works great. Quick and easy to use with no pinching, crushing or cracking. The guard to prevent you from cutting the quick seems a little useless since the quick can be all different lengths and it made the clippers less maneuverable so I just turned it up and out of my way. Neither of my rescue dogs like getting their nails clipped despite being fine with me holding their paws and nails, so I think they both must have been nicked at some point. I tried dremmeling and neither of them liked the noise or feel, so back to nail clippers it was. It took several sessions, but using these clippers both my boys are finally getting over their fear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pitboss Fast cuts
So I have a 3 year old pit bull, and ever since I made that first bad cut on one of her nails when she was a puppy she has never really let me cut her nails even with distraction or a big treat that would take forever to eat in front of her. By the time I start to apply pressure she would yank like crazy, because her previous clipper appear to no cut but instead crush her nails. So I picked up these new cutters because sending her to get her nails clipped started to add up. Now that I got the new one, we at first struggled but I think she knew I was desperate to clip her nails, so she let me and before she knew it, I was already done clipping all her nails because she didn't notice me clipping because it cut her nail fast. Not sure if it was because they were well sharpen but got the job done nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Overcomer98 Pet Nail Clipping Easier & Safer!
Using my arthritic hands to hold & press closed my nail clippers became impossible. It became unsafe & too frustrating for my cat, Cali & myself to continue using my nail clippers to clip her nails. Four Paws Ultimate Touch Safety Pet Nail Clippers have features that are easy & safe to use. Cali is now more tolerant in allowing me to clip her nails.

Bought to trim my Great Pyrenees' nails. Does not open widely enough to even cut dew claws and hard to use on other nails. These clippers broke within about three months. Not happy at all with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by whyvett Better than my old pair
It's been nearly 3 years since I purchased my last pair of doggy nail clippers, and the blades on that pair were beginning to get dull and splinter my poor pup's nails. So it was time for a new pair. I purchased this pair based on reviews and the price point, tried them once, and it works beautifully. Cutting is smooth and the big rubber grips give you confidence. I've a small 13lb cockapoo, and this does the trick nicely. I've never liked using the safety bar as it hinders vision in my opinion, but aside for the bit of redundancy, I'm glad I got this pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PetLover897 You get what you pay for
I purchased these because they looked similar to the ones I have been using for years (they are getting dull), and the price seemed really good. However, when I opened the package and tested them on my dog (who is VERY good for getting her nails clipped), they did not give a clean crisp clip, but rather seemed to crush the nail. The blade did not have a good, sharp edge and the materials seem to be sub-par quality. My old clippers still cut nails better than this new pair. I will be donating these to our local shelter and ordering the same pair I was trying to replace through a different site. Sadly, the ones I have been using are not carried on Chewy's site.

Similar clippers have hard plastic handles but this one is a cushioned rubber and has a lock to close the handles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HuskyDo Not sharp enough.
I have a 60 lb siberian husky who is a perfect angel when it comes to grooming. She patiently sat for me to clip her nails and these clippers actually caused her to start to fidget and fuss. They will NOT cut through a nail without some serious downward pressure being applied by the user. I don't know about you, but I'm no Hulk Hogan. I found these clippers to be rather oversized for my hand, very cheaply made, and not sharp at all. The safety stop did stay in place however, but the time it took me to do one of her paws I could've had all 4 done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amanda14 Works better than a dremmel
Works fast and easier to use than a dremmel on my dog. The safety bar is a bit further away from the cutter than it truly should be, so take care when using it to make sure you don't accidentally cut the quick. I was using it more as a measurement and only going half way to the safety bar and it worked great.

These were much smaller than I expected and did not cut my medium dog's nails very well. They were just too small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by milkyway Not sharp enough, not a clean cut
I think my dog likes me a little less after using these on her. They aren't sharp enough so they don't cut in a clean break, which actually resulted in pain for my puppy.

This nail clipper has a nice cutting action. I have mixed feelings about the cutting guard. It did help guide me as to how short to cut my dog's nails. HOWEVER, it also obstruct my view of the nail. I cut one of my terriers nails too short and it bled all day. I think in the future I will not use the guide, but rather eyeball the cutting length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wags99 Helps A Lot
I'm skittish about cutting any cat's nails, but especially mine because they are black and I can rarely even see the quick. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is after cutting just one cat's front paw nails, the spring seems to not be so springy so I have to adjust it each time before the next nail. Pain in the butt and I'm sure Chewy would exchange it but, as usual, I'm too lazy to bother to return something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joe3aussies CUTTING NAILS ON MY DOG...TOUGH
I HAD A TOUGH TIME CUTTING THE TOENAILS ON MT "BENTLY" DOG (10 MONTH OLD BLUE-MERLE AUSSIE). I DID EVERYTHING TO KEEP HIM FROM BEING AFRAID OF HAVING HIS NAILS CLIPPED.
SINCE I GOT THE NEW TOENAIL CLIPPER I EASED IT IN ON HIM AND DO IT QUICKLY, SHORT PERIODS OF TIME. HE DOESN'T SEEM TO MIND IT. THE NEW CLIPPERS ARE VERY SHARP AND FIT IN MY BIG FARMER HANDS COMFORTABLY.
BENTLEY SEEMS SATISFIED AND I AMD HAPPY TO GET HIS NAILS CLIPPED. I LOVE HIM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lou63 Best nail clippers ever!
The first time in YEARS I trimmed nails with no fuss, no muss. They didn't even act like they realized they were getting their nails clipped and that must be die to the sharpness of the clippers. They fit easily in my hand and worked like a charm. What has been a dreaded event in the past was accomplished in one setting with great results. I'm ecstatic!

I didn't think about the fact that this wouldn't work for a lefty and you can't turn the guard to the other side.

This works great! It clips the nails clean and the guards do help to prevent to cut too deep.This is my second time buying it after misplacing it. After misplacing it, I tried to use different clippers,but it would just brake her nails instead of clipping it cleanly. Great product!!

I absolutely love Chewy.com, you order items and they come so fast, and the shipping is reasonable etc.
I don't have to worry if I look and the dog food is low that I will have to wait a week to get it, it comes within a couple days of ordering.
Good Job Chewy.com and keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CBusPetowner Works great
My dog is very skittish about nail cutting. I am too, to be honest, because I don't want to hit the quick. We tried this out in the bathtub where he seems comfortable with it. The quick guard on this makes it easy and he tolerated it quite well. And I was able to clip then rather neatly so they weren't jagged afterwards.

I love this nail clipper. My baby is very small with very small nails but very touchy when it comes to her feet. She actually let me clip her nails with this and I am much more at ease because you can't cut too much nail. The price was reasonable and I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nurse1 The safety pet nail clippers have great features.
The nail clippers works well. I really like the safety
bar to prevent cutting my dogs nails too short.
The gripe on the safety nail clippers makes them
easy to use. I have encouraged my friends with
pets to use these safety pet nail clippers.

I use these nail clippers on my two toy poodles; the dogs don't wince a bit. I used to bring my dogs to have their nails clipped at a groomer and it cost $5 per dog. Obviously, these clippers paid for themselves the first time I used them.
