Pedipaw or peticure?

Are pedipaw or peticure any good? I've been having a hard time trimming the dog's nails and I thought I might look into the pedipaw. Has anyone used it? I just wasn't sure if it was any good, it's cheap and I don't know to much about it. I know there are probably some posts about this, but I didn't see any(and I was to lazy to look!!)

No, it's junk unless you have a small dog. News did an thing last wk on it. Groomer even hated it. If you really want something similar, buy a dremel.

Agree.

I am going to try and take mine back. The noise freaks my dogs out. Then it did not work. For as long as you would have to train them to stay you could of clipped and been done with it.

Then I saw that when the head wears out, the replacements cost $10!! There's where they get you....(I do not know how many replacements were in the box).

Yep, those tings are cheap, poor attempts of imitating a dremel. Get the real thing.

Re: Pedipaw or peticure?

Thanks! I wasn't sure if it was really worth it. I heard it is mainly for 10 lbs. and under dogs. My gsds are not 10 lbs.!!!!! But where would I buy a dremel? I haven't seen them around. Oh and also is there a huge possiblity that the dremel would cut the quick?
