Do you guys use nail clippers? If so, what kind and how are they working for you?
I have a guillotine clipper right now and I'm looking for ways of sharpening the blade. They do seem to shatter the nail, now that it's not sharp. From the time I got them, I would say they stayed sharp for about 1 year. Is there any difference between the two clippers...? I've never used scissor style...In the past I've found that the guillotine style ones don't stay as sharp and usually shatter the nail rather than give it a good clean clip.

Another dremmel vote here! We tried Pedipaws, but it was a joke; no power whatsoever. And I'm afraid to let my husband loose with those crappy clippers again.I use a dremel! its so easy and gets the nails much shorter.
Ours is an older Dremel MultiPro that we've had for about 14 years, so I'm not sure what the equivalent is in their current lineup: perhaps the 300 series?Where did you buy your dremmel and what kind is it...?
I saw that on the Dremel website, but wondered if it was powerful enough to handle larger dog's nails. Sounds like it might.Just found out that one of my friends has a dremmel. Wooot!! She's a groomer. She let me borrow it for as long as I want. She has tons of grinders. It has hi and low speeds and is cordless. Requires four AA batteries. Here's a pic of it...
Aspen does the same thing with his nails on the concrete too. But lately, they have been getting a little long. I'm not sure why. Especially his declaws. I probably will stick to the dremmel since I hate trimming black nails. Every other nail on him is black. They make me nervous...!!I feel fortunate since I never clipped my dogs nails, we walk a lot on roads which keeps his nails short.
