I have not tried that specific brand but I have tried with a Dremal tool. I don't think I need another one. I'm happy with dremal.

I'm the obedience instructor for a doggy daycare joint, but I spend a lot of my free time in the grooming room; one of my best friends is a groomer there, and in between clients we chit-chat while she scissors a pup.

A couple of weeks ago she was given a Peticure device as a gift. I've always liked the dremel myself, or the dremel in addition to scissor-type clippers if the dog has horrifyingly long talons (you'd be shocked at how many dog owners bring their dogs in and have no idea that their dog even had dewclaws...its sickening).

I've found the Peticure device to be inferior to a good dremel; you can't really see how much you've filed down and its utterly useless on very long nails. Besides that, its batteries are zapped in no time, its loud and vibrate-y and more dogs tolerate the clippers better.

To get that awesome filed-down and clean look, stick with the dremel.

I use an electric dremel. It is less convenient than a battery operated one but it also means I don't have to keep buying batteries. The dogs definately prefer it over nail clippers and its easy enough to use.

I was wondering the same thing. I want to find an easy, safe and pain-free way to clip my puppy's nails and hate those traditional nail clippers. I've read many different views...I might just have to try one and see...

Dremel makes several cordless variates, including the MiniMite (which I use) and the Stylus (which I've seen used at PetSmart.) They don't run off double-A batteries like the Dremel Cordless Pet Nail Grinder does - they run off a battery that you must charge up. I would highly recommend any of those over this. =>

I haven't even looked at the dremel. It does sound better. Thanks for your input.

If they won't sit still for clippers (which I think is faster than using the peticure), then they won't sit for the peticure. I clip my dogs nails every 2 weeks, and use the peticure in between to keep them looking nice.

Not neccissarily true - it depends on the dog. Mia will not sit still for clippers, but will for the dremmel

~~Mafia~~

Cider even after a year trying to desensitize her to clippers still screamed while clipping. She took to a dremel easily. She will never love anything that makes her nails shorter, but she is better about dremelling.

Smudge sits still for either. Didn't really desensitize him to the dremel.

Still think the peticure is a useless pet people invention though. Guess it's good if you don't know how your dogs will handle dremelling as it's cheap. But if you have more than one dog, and want to do it semi often, it's not what I'd use.

My dogs do fine for the dremel, so I've never needed to look into another product. I have fuzzy dogs, but I am able to hold the hair back when using the dremel.

I find the dremel to be just as fast as clippers for me, and I like the result much more.

And Jules hates the clippers..oh, the fits he throws. He just sighs sadly about the dremel and puts up with it
