Top critical review
Really disappointing (large grumpy malamute now even grumpier)
on 9 November 2015
I bought these after reading all the top reviews, and making sure that others with large dogs have tried them (I have a large female malamute). I'm fairly disappointed in them to be honest, although they were really cheap so maybe my expectations were too high.
Either my dogs nails are extraordinarily thick and large or I have a different set of clippers to everyone else! (I definitely have the genuine Wahl clippers). Her whole nail cannot fit inside the space and I knew it wouldn't the second I took it out the packaging. So I've had to make do by clipping small sections at a time, which really slows the whole process down.
I'm left-handed, and I found it really difficult to hold the clippers. My partner tried them and he had no issues, so it may just be a left-handed-folk issue.
Also, they didn't leave a nice clean cut; the ends of her nails are now quite raggedy which can't be too pleasant for her. I'm lucky she doesn't cause much of a fuss when we touch her paws, otherwise it could've been a lot worse.
I'm now considering alternatives because these just aren't living up to my expectations.
