array(2) { [0]=> string(0) "" ["keywords"]=> string(20) "allowing,Chihuahuas," }

Question by MINT~ie: we be allowing a pet store to cut our Chihuahua’s nails?
We got him from that guy,sadly.

Anyway,my parents don’t want to use dog clippers because they’re scared they may hurt him. I told them to try and file them,but nope.

?
I’m unsure if he knows,actually.

He probably does,but he isn’t a very good groomer.
No,Coco walks. I just don’t really get near him much because he likes to put his front on you,and his nails are long.

Answer by Mommyto2
It doesn’t really matter who does it as long as they get done. If he knows what he is doing let him do it.

    Thanks Adam you just saved me A  professional dog groomer 20.00 dollars. I will stick with the 80.00 dollar dremmel.

    I agree. I’m learning, with every one of these I do. I also think that the audio level for the background music was too high and distracting. Further evidence that I am a dog trainer, not a videographer. 😉

    We love the Pedipaws. It is a great tool for trimming the dogs nails. We have three dogs and so do not have the money to spend on expensive groomers. We have learned to groom them ourselves. The dogs love having their nails filed instead of cut. I give the Pedipaws a thumbs up.

    After doing this video, somebody on our forum said, “So– I guess I’ll stick with the nail clippers, then?” And it got me thinking: I did this video and was only comparing it from my perspective:. Compared to a nail clippers, I think you’re right: It probably is easier. I’m curious to try a dremmel, though.

    I have a pedipaw, and yes you do have to acclimate your dog to it. I am not very disciplined so I didn’t do it properly. Do I like it? Yes, I have birds and I use it on their nails and take off the guard and use it on their beaks. At work I have owls and I use it for them too. So yep I like it. It is similar to a dremmel but not as fast, so if you are not used to using a dremmel this is better.

    I HATED for my dogs to get clipped and was thrilled when PEDI PAWS hit the scene. I did take the time to ACCLIMATE my dogs and they did well. Their patience however runs out after griding and grinding only to not have gotten much off…the edges are sometimes even sharper than they were ultimately tearing more up…!! Did I say Jack Russell Terrorists (2 yes 2) while but for the time it takes to make any prog ..its asking too much of the breed and its owner. UGH

    Once your dog is acclimated to the PediPaws it works great. The paws are smooth and no more worry about cutting the quick

    I didn’t mind watching you looking at the package! It was ‘real”. I am always afraid of hurting my dog while clipping, but I also don’t know if he’d sit that long with one nail grinding away at a time. Guess I’ll go along with your statement, of ohh probably not! Thanks. Louella

    Man, you sure have to bribe your dog a lot to get it to trust you… it looks like you don’t have much control or trust from your dog

    Is it worth $20? Hell no! I live in Britain and bought one brand new for £1.99 which isn’t much in US currency. Certainly not worth $20. Think you got ripped off mate.

    the dog will be fine and nail clipping needs to be done. Filing the dogs nails will take way to long and the pup will get anxious. You don’t have to be a groomer to cut dogs nails, it is really easy, I do my own dogs nails every week.

    Is the pet store owner confident at clipping nails? It really isn’t a very hard thing to do and the pet store owner may have done it several hundred times before with their own dogs and customers dogs……….depends on if you trust them to know what they are doing.

    You can file them as you said…………….so why haven’t you done that or just some road walking would keep nails short then you don’t need to……………or is it a dog that is carried everywhere? …..in which case you have to file or clip.

    As long as he knows how to cut them. Most dogs have something called quicks. It’s a vein in their nails. Try not to cut this or your dog will bleed and be in pain.
