    DefaultPediPaw

    Does anyone have or tried a "PediPaw" nail grooming tool? I usually let the vets clip Koko's nails because I am afraid of clipping too much by accident. I thought with this tool it would be safer.

    Ok, just read a lot of negative reviews on this product. Any other good suggestions?

    I like it - it's quiet and does a reasonably good job at sanding the nails down. Drawback is that the motor is fairly low power so it's not a fast process - if I had the money I would get a mini dremel grinder, same idea, better motor.

    The good old Dremel does a great job. I've been using Ken's old corded one, but plan on buying a cordless one as soon as finances allow.

    The guy at the local pet supply store actually lost a sale one day- someone asked about the Pedi Paw and he told her the motor wasn't strong enough for a dog the size of hers-a Lab.

    Yeah, I like mine but it does take FOREVER. Dogs only have so much patience. I can only use it on one dog who isn't scared of the motor noise.

    None of those would work for Puff. It usually takes all my strength lying on the floor beside her while someone else clips her nails. And then, sometimes, we even need the help of one more person.

    I bring my boyz to a groomer friend who clips their nails, and then dremels. She had a PediPaws but found the same thing, that there just wasn't enough oooomph to do big lab nails, so she dremels now.

    That reminds me, I have to bring the boyz in tomorrow. Ollie keeps his pretty short on his own by nibbling on them.

    Yeah, I don't have the money for one either, but I like the PediPaw. It works for us, and Jes doesn't mind it.

    It definitely can take a while, but I've learned to just not let his nails get as long. That's probably better off for him anyways. The Dremel is better, but if you're looking for a lower cost alternative, I would recommend it.

    Tried Pedipaws. Got to where Bo would let me work on his nails for a little while, but as everyone said, not long enough to have much effect. Gus was just freaked out by the whole thing. I'll keep taking them to the groomer for their nails. I think he has clippers and a dremel. Don't know if he's just better at it or has more people to keep Gus quiet.
