Not sure how good the pedi paw is. I've read it's not powerful enough for labs nails...so it might take awhile to do them. I would first let her sniff the tool with it turned off. Let her sniff and give treat. I would do that for a few days. Then I would turn it on and give treat. Pet her with it..give treat. Do that for a few days. Then I would do one nail a day. Do it in small incriments of time. Till she gets use to it and is not afraid of it. My lab prefers the drimmel tool over clipping her nails.
