Hi Bianca how is your MMM doing? My Molly now weighs 70lbs how about your sweet MMM? I will measure her and let you know!Ooooh theres beautiful Miss Molly May :wub: Glad it looked like it went well Just to be nosey: what's her height and weight now for a comparison with my MMM?
No but we were looking at the Petty paw today and are thinking of buying it. It is the same thing as a dremel just not sure if its worth it?She does look less than thrilled but seems to have survived! Nice to see new pics of her I watched a groomer using a dremel today - does yours ever do that?
I am bringing Molly to Petsmart tomorrow and will check out the Quickfinder tool thanks!!Here's a thread on Dremel use. http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum/basic-care/142655-dremel-those-nails.html
I've read that Pedi Paws isn't heavy duty enough for GSD nails, but haven't tried it myself. We've nicked Mr. Q a couple of times but he has forgiven us (cheese helps!) I also saw the Quickfinder tool mentioned in the thread at PetSmart yesterday. Has anyone else used it?
Thank you for the heads up about the quick finderThe quick finder thing is a waste of money. I work in a dog grooming salon and we have one but it's about useless.
On bigger dogs I find using a dremel works best. once they get over the sound it makes cutting their nails a lot easier. I have hardwood floors so I trim my dogs nails almost weekly or even twice a week i shave a bit off..she's perfectly still for her trims now.
You could always ask your grooming shop if they do deals on nail trims if you come in often. I have a guy that comes in about once or twice a week and we only charge him for a nail trim every 4th or 5th time. He works in a bakery and sometimes brings us chocolate and we do it for free for awhile! :wild:
