Absolutely! Our electric trimmer is much safer than regular clippers. You can avoid overcutting your dog's nails, which can happen quite frequently with the regular nail clippers.
With Soft Pet Paws, you and your pooch will experience a much more pleasant nail trimming session.
Our nail trimmer is very quiet. It produces a very low noise on the 35-40 dB range which is similar to the sound light rain makes. It's the quietest nail trimmer on the market!
Big dogs usually have thicker and harder nails which makes the trimming process more difficult. We recommend using Soft Pet Paws on a regular basis (at least once per week) in order to keep the nails short and smooth.
Changing grinding heads frequently makes the trimming process faster.
Yes! Smaller dogs have small and fragile nails so we'd recommend using one of the smaller openings for a safer trimming session.
Our nail grinder has been tested on cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, turtles and other small animals and it works like a charm.
General Questions about Nail Trimming
Trimming your dog’s nails is an important grooming task that helps them stay happy and healthy. When you don’t clip your dog’s nails, they can end up growing too long, which can cause problems.
Cutting your dog's nails frequently will cause the quick to recede and allow the nails to be trimmed shorter. So, if it's possible and practical to trim your dog's nails weekly or at least every other week, you'll likely see better results, have a much less stressed dog, and experience less stress yourself in the process.
Long nails can actually be painful for your dog when they strike the pavement or floor with each step.
Moreover, long nails can make it difficult for your dog to have a good grip as they walk on slick floors like hardwood and tile. This is especially concerning for older dogs. If they splay their legs repeatedly this can cause trauma to their joints and muscles, or worsen arthritic conditions.
Untrimmed nails can curl and grow into your dog's skin or paw pads, resulting in an infection and pain. This is true of all nails, but especially the dewclaws.
The short answer is "No". While for some dogs, walks on hard surfaces (like concrete) can be enough for them to keep nails short, that's not always the case. Some dogs are inclined to have harder and thicker nails that need to be trimmed regularly. Other dogs can't take walks (especially older dogs) for a variety of reasons, so it's necessary to trim your dog's nails yourself.
