I have a very nervous dog- she allows me to use regular clippers on her nails without fuss, but the ancient nail grinder I had once upon a time terrified her. she has black nails that have been overgrown for a long time with super long quicks. nail trimming has been a source of stress for me for a long time, after I quicked her twice with clippers. this is a game changer. so quiet, so fast, so effective, and the light on the tip is so helpful. love that it's rechargeable with a cord instead of batteries. so thankful. we are already getting a better handle on these dragon claws in a month than we've been able to in the last two years using clippers. I can't read dog minds, but I assume my girl doesn't mind this grinder (vs the old one) because it is so quiet, and the grind is so smooth and efficient. The old one I had was loud, and aggressive and herky jerky.
My skittish, anxious retriever mix got used to it quickly in a few sessions using her regular food as a reward, following the instructions that came with it. I was really hesitant because a lot of negative info online about grinders -- I thought it would scare her too much or do nothing at all/wear out and break before it made any difference on her long, thick nails. But it actually works great, got rid of her sharp tips immediately and shortened her nails over time. (Less scratching us and gouging the wood floors, more comfortable for her.) I like that it comes with extra drum heads.
