Well, I am terrified of using clippers on my dogs black nails. And he is terrified of the grinder.
So thought this might at least file the sharpened edges of his nails that are tearing my arms apart.
Alas, he won’t even tolerate the file.
Bought new tiny clippers that are supposed to be silent, and with Vet’s permission, will give Cocoa some Benadryl, then try clippers and file.
Trying to stay optimistic!
Good Nail File to Shape Rough Edges
on Feb 15, 2021
I used this nail file to shape rough edges after trimming dogs nails. I really like the flat side so it can be placed against pawpad when filing without injuring the pawpad. 4 stars since handle slipped out of my hands a few times it’s hard to grip.
FINALLY CAN TRIM NAILS
on Dec 6, 2020
This product is a lifesaver for me. I've purchased nail clippers and the dremel nail grinder - both were too anxiety-provoking for my dog. This nail file grinds well enough to leave nail dust, and it gives me far greater control to trim my dog's nails, but not get to the quick. It is far more forgiving for a beginner like me. I'm very thankful to have this product.
Make sure to follow the directions and to keep at it - it may seem like it's not filing anything within the first couple swipes. If your dog hates the feel and sound of clippers and grinding tools, then this is a good, affordable option to at least try.

This was my last resort in getting my dogs nails done. Took a bit of time for him to get use to it but overall so much better than the actual Dremel & clippers. 10/10 recommend for dogs with black nails and for those whom are skittish of clippers.

I bought this for my girls nails and it works great. Takes time to file them but that’s fine with me
Love this file

I really love this file. It is curved to help keep the nail on the file and its long so just a few passes and the edge of the nail is smooth.
Excellent Nail File

Our new foster had trouble adjusting to nail clipping as she lived on a farm in the south all of her life. She tolerated the nail file and it was great at filing down the nail. It was small enough to get behind the nail and was efficient when filing the nail down. Will purchase again when I need a new one.
Work Very Good
