It’s no secret. I like dogs as pets. In fact for the past decade I have had at least two or three dogs. Now having a small pack of dogs has provided me with some unique insights over the years.

Perhaps the most unique sentence I have ever muttered was regarding my son and my yellow labrador retriever…. “DON”T PAINT THE DOG”.

Keeping these dogs happy requires lots of food and lots of grooming. Now my dogs are really good when being bathed, or brushed but they are not too keen on getting their nails trimmed. They try to pull their paw away whenever I try to trim their nails with my old nail clipper. Well I thought to myselft that there has got to be a better way.

What It Costs $19.99 + $7.99 shipping and handling
Ease of use 5 Stars
This product requires 2 C batteries (not included) so when it arrived in the mail, and I opened it up, it was not able immediately try it.

Sadly I needed to go to the big box store to pick up some C batteries since I did not have any in the house. Well at least I got the chance to walk back down the assseenontv isle.

Actual performance 4 ½ Stars
PediPaws is similar in concept to a dremmel sanding tool. The sanding pad spins around and allows you to grind down items that touch the sanding pad.
I put in the batteries and turn the PediPaws on. It makes a noise, not too quiet but not too loud. It is loud enough to get the dogs attention. So I start my orientation of the dogs to their new nail trimmer by just having it run while I gently pet them. After a while or orientation, I decide to give it a try and get my big dog Sparky. Now avid readers of my blog may remember Sparky from the only other post that he starred, the Eggstractor.

Sparky has a good even temperament, a gentle giant, weighing in just under 110 pounds. I have him sit on his side and take one of his paws. I gently put one of his nails against the PediPaws grinding wheel and the nail starts to be trimmed. He protests slightly but soon enough realizes that Pedi Paws is not going to hurt him. I slowely grind the nail away.

Final thoughts on practicality
If your dog nails are long, this will take some time to grind down the nail as it does not grind down as quickly as shown on the commercial. It does work but will take some time.

Also, grinding a dog nail smells (not a nice smell). They forgot to mention that on the commercial.
After PediPaws Sparky's nails are smooth which is nice as my old nail trimmer would leave them with sharp areas.

So does this product work??? The answer is YES.

Is it better then a sharp nail clipper. YES.

Is it faster then a sharp nail clipper. NO.

Will your dog let you use it. PERHAPS.
Some dogs don’t like their paws touched or nails trimmed and using Pedi Paws takes longer then a conventional nail trimmer. Also the noise of the trimmer might scare your dog. I am still trying to get my puppy Moose to allow me to use it.

Final Score
5 out of 5 stars

  1. Save your money and just buy yourself a Dremel tool with a sanding drum instead... then you can use it for many things around the house, not just on your dog.

    I used a Dremel on my Great Dane's nails for her entire life and couldn't imagine trimming a dog's nails any other way.
