your pet to ensure a proper and gentle filing step 1 for all nail trimming sessions make sure you're in a place where your pet is most at ease such as a favorite bed or couch to make sure that the orange protective cap is screwed on securely before filing this will hold your pet's nail in place and collect the nail shavings that will come off of your pets nail step 3 now grasp your pets paw in between two fingers as shown two stand and support each now as you file step 4 gently insert a nail into the opening in the orange protective cap and only file each now for no longer than four seconds you never want to file off too much of your pets now for the first few uses be careful to only file enough to shape and smooth your pets nails you never want to file off too much of your pets nail in later sessions your pet snail will adjust and you'll be able to reduce the length of the nail more significantly step 5 remember to always shape and smooth the nail in a round motion filing both the top and bottom evenly on each nail step 6 repeat steps 3 through 5 for each paw and your pets nails will now be perfectly groomed after you and your pet have had several initial pettypaws pedicures you can try and get closer to the quick remember the quick is the area of the nail that contains the blood supply and is easily damaged by traditional nail clippers the pettypaws gives you enough control to go slowly enough to gauge how close you want to get to the quick on lighter nailed animals the quick appears as a darker area in the center of the nail if you can't see the quick easily you'll know you're getting close when you encounter a softer area of the nail while filing the quick is right behind this layer after each filing session the quick will begin to recede more and more and you'll eventually be able to trim your pets nails even shorter now that you're done trimming your pets nails turn off the unit and empty the filings do this by first removing the batteries to ensure your safety then unscrew the orange protective cap dump the filings from the cap into the trash and screw the orange protective cap back on wipe your pettypaws with a dry cloth and store it in a safe dry location away from children if you won't be using your pettypaws for an extended period of time leave the batteries out of the unit but if you plan on using your pettypaws regularly it is safe to reinsert the batteries from time to time you may notice the filing head of your pettypaws will become dull it's important to change the filing head when this happens to ensure a proper and gentle filing for your pet to do this follow these simple steps step 1 turn off pettypaws and remove the batteries before opening the orange protective cap step 2 unscrew the orange protective cap step 3 hold the filing head firmly between your fingers and remove the single screw on the top of the filing head with a Philips head screwdriver step 4 remove the old filing head and replace it with

  1. This thing doesn't work for a big 100 lb lab with thick toenails.

    It took me eight minutes of grinding to take the tip out of his dew claw.

  2. I prefer just the regular dremel brand dremel ( battery operated ) you just have to know how to shape them right and not take too much off. I do my dog's weekly

  3. I bought it at a yard sale for 2 dollars and I cant even get my dogs nail in there and when I do it works for a mila second then makes a sound like its being hung up and his nail is barely touching it and it scares us both

  4. I'd like to see someone successfully use that thing on a cat. LOL. I bet the cat in the instructional video was given some happy pills before fliming 😉

  5. This only worked on my elderly dog who is 15 years old and doesn't give a shit but my other dogs that are 8 years old and 14months old want nothing to do with it! If rather pay 15 dollars to get em clipped at pet smart.

  6. I didn't think I could use this and not bleed to death from all the cat inflicted scratches, but my kitty actually likes this thing more than me trying to clip her claws.

  7. Thanks for the video 🙂 I just got my pedipaw yesterday my pet loves it and it cuts cost on taking him to be groomed I can do it myself from now on thanx 🙂

  8. @454667 if you're done and your pet leans to one side, you took too much off that side. Take a little more off the opposite side and try to be a bit more frugal next time.

  9. i just lay my 3 year old dachshund on her back and spread her toes out and she just lays there like it's not big deal! i give her a tiny piece of a treat after every nail when she begins to get a little squirmy sometimes i stand her up and play with her then go back to her nails…i like this product a lot! i'm just scared sometimes that i might go to far on her nails, but luckily that hasn't happened yet! my rottweiler on the other hand…he's a big baby! haha we have to resort the vet for him

  10. @Babybest001 Alkaline batteries and phillips screwdrivers aren't *brands*- they're types. You need that type because that's how the machine works. Phillips screwdrivers are also called plus heads. Lots of brands carry them. Same with alkaline batteries- Energizer, Duracell, and Kirkland signature all have alkaline batteries.

  11. ok, That is SOOOOO annoying! How come every instructional video for ANYTHING has this same girl! her voice gets soooo anoyying!!!!!!!!!!

  12. I was skeptical, but my dog has dark nails and HATES the clippers. I did the acclimation process but I did end up leaning on the dog as I did her nails. I make sure to do the trimming after her longest walk of the day and -before- feeding her dinner or treats, so she associates the process with something pleasant…even if she's not keen on the filing itself. I also try to wait until she looks a bit sleepy, although that's not always possible.

  13. Thanks a lot for your comments. This is exactly what I have been saying all along. The acclimation process is 3 part and many people skip the first two and go right to the 3rd andthen wonder why it doesn't work. Thanks again!!

  14. Wow. Look at all the ppl that have no clue how to follow SIMPLE written directions. If yours stops more than likely you pressed too hard!!! It's supposed to stop when you do that…as stated in the instructions. And if your dog is fighting it because you were too impatient to properly acclimate them to the sound, or it getting near their feet, then you need to return the product and go pay a groomer. Or learn to read directions properly. Wow. I use on all my foster dogs. No problems.

  15. @AeonBaller you dumb ass its not supposed to cut it in under 2minutes. the idea is it takes off a verry small amount so you dont go to far. I use this with my dog and it takes about 5-10 minutes and its more plesant for both of us.
