A Product With Pedigree

I can not recommend these Clippers enough.
I am a great believer in getting value for money and you rarely get that by buying cheap. These were not the cheapest on offer on Amazon and once you have them in your hand you will understand why.
The blades are sharp and I recomend you use them like small garder pruners or snips. Do this and it'll be a doddle. I got perfect clean cuts on every one of my German Shepherd's nails. If you try to cut carefully or delicately like finger nails, you will hit snags. Quick shapr pressure.
I introduced the clippers to Cooper by showing them to him and treating him. then I put them away. I repeated this a dozen times over a couple of hours. Now when he sees them he kisses them. He loves to lay at the top of the stairs with his paws hanging over the top step so i waited until he was comfy there and repeated show and treat, but after the treat I took his paw firlmyand snipped a little from the first nail at a 45 degree angle. I treated again. I repeated this for each cut and he was completely relaxed.
I went in small cuts as to ensure i never hit the quick. after each snip I checked the cut and when the centre of the nail had gone from white to black, I stopped. As he is dark nailed you cant see the quick so this is an easy guide.
Now when I take the clippers out he runs to the tops of the stairs and lays down.
I honestly cant recommend these enough. Use them correctly and they are worth their weight in gold. amazing value for money.
