sorry can't help…we used the guillotine style in the practice and the groomers used them too. I still use them at home. Are you looking at and clipping the toenail from the underside. it just shouldn't hurt the dog at all if you are doing it right.

    I use a small grinder , it works real well and it leaves the nails round with no sharp edges.

    I don’t like the guillotine style either. This style is much better: http://www.lovemypet.com.au/shopexd.asp?id=1277

    I usually use a Dremel tool on my dog’s nails instead of clippers, because they’re black. Using a Dremel allows you to take off a tiny bit at a time until you approach the quick, and it also smooths the nails (no rough edges!). For instructions go to this site: http://homepages.udayton.edu/~merensjp/doberdawn/index.html and click on the ‘how to dremel dog nails’ link on the lower left portion of the page.

    Sorry, I use the guillotine clippers… Check out the dremel tool, lots of people use that and their dogs seem to not mind it at all.. Careful tho, don’t grind in one spot too much, don’t take them down too far, and watch out you don’t get anyone’s hair caught in the thing.

    I have been a professional dog groomer for 15 years and I can tell you with complete confidence the absolute best clippers are made by Miller Forge. You can get them on petedge.com and they are bright orange and run about twelve USD. I am not sure if they ship to you but give it a try. If not just order the same ones off another site or from ebay. The guillotine ones suck and I would never use them. Give the Miller Forge a try, they have no problem cutting through even the largest thickest nails.

    Use the scissor type. Plain and simple, you can sharpen them and you don’t need new blades. A good heavy duty pair will last your lifetime not just the dog.

    Otherwise you could try dremelling. I like it.
