I was so excited to order and receive these pet nail clippers! I have tried numerous brands of clippers in the past to trim my dogs’ nails and all with unsatisfying results. I have six dogs, so that’s a LOT of nails that need to be trimmed regularly! My dogs range in size from a little chug to a great big Pit-bull, so I needed something that would work on all the dogs – mainly because of my tendency to lose things and having more than one item for doing the same exact job is kind of lame in my opinion.
Anyway, in the past I have had real trouble clipping the biggest dog’s nails because I simply could not get the clippers to cut them! No matter how hard I squeezed they were not capable of getting through his thick nails. Add to that the arthritis in my hands which make actions such as squeezing painful and difficult and by the time we were finished, both the dog and I would be extremely frustrated and in pain.
NOT SO with the RollinPets brand!
By the time I had received these in the mail, Cesar’s nails had gotten so long that he was regularly catching them on things.. even his own collar once! That was a sight to behold.. let me tell you. Picture a 75 pound Pit Bull with his back leg attached to his collar by a toenail, hopping around on three legs without even complaining because that’s just the kind of dog he is. SMH That guy! lol
But, I digress…
By the time I had received the RollinPets Pet Nail Clipper package in the mail, Cesar and I were a bit hesitant about trying them out. Neither one of us wanted to be disappointed again and I certainly didn’t want to hurt him in the process. But we took a deep breath and set to work.
We were so happy to find that the RollinPets Nail Clippers were nothing like the other brands that had let us down before. They were comfortable to hold, easy to squeeze and cut through Cesar’s nails like nobody’s business! Cesar soon lost his trepidation and allowed me to finish the job without even a grumble!
The vein in Cesar’s nail had grown down quite a bit so I wasn’t able to get them quite as close as I wanted to, but we are making progress. These clippers came with a free storage bag and a massage brush. The storage bag at first was a little difficult to close, but I believe that is just because it is new. It’s a plasticy – nylon kinda bag with a pull closure, so if you do get these clippers, just be gentle. Let it get used to stretching out a bit because one other reviewer complained that the bag ripped the first time he used it. My opinion is that he was too rough. (MEN!)
Now, let’s talk about the massaging brush. I admit it. I tried it on myself. Well, as a back scratcher, anyway. And these dogs are lucky if they ever get it again. As far as back scratchers go, this thing is the shizz!! I just wish it had a nice long handle, but alas, it was not meant for humans.
The dogs seem to enjoy it, too.
You can snatch the RollinPets Professional Dog Clippers on Amazon.com for a great price! And you can find my review there, too!
