I have tried it with all 5 and they run and hide.....have been trying since last summer and even the youngest one now 9 months hides under the bed before I even turn it on.

I just would run it and bring it close to them and wouldn't let them run - they would sniff it and that would be enough for now. A couple hours later or even the next day I would do it again -- patiently -- and put it away. Then try with one toe and if the dog is ok, another - if he/she gets anxious then stop for the timing being.

It works great on the little dogs but it didn't work well on my big dog. It wouldn't take enough off and would actually start to smell like it was burning. It does work to smooth things out a bit after they are clipped though. You might have better luck though, who knows.

My daughter-in-law was here for dinner and saw this box
sitting on my desk waiting to be mailed out to "someone"
so she took it with her for her dogs.
So it is gone to a new home!

I have Pedi Paws, and use it regularly.

My dog hates to have her nails clipped, but will tolerate the Pedi Paws better. She doesn't really like it, but at least she doesn't try to bite me now.

For my dog, this was well worth the money, and yes it does smell like burning at times, but only if the nails are a little longer.

Getting replacement sanding disks are readily available, I bought a large box of them, so it should keep me going for awhile.

take care
binky
