Does PediPaws Really Work?

PediPaws  is an automatic pet nail clipper for pets that can be used by either right or left handed people. This no-pain nail trimmer is ideal for either dogs or cats of any age or size.  Pedi-Paws clippers feature a rotating emery filing wheel that removes thin nail layers gently. Made of high quality and durable materials, PediPaws also includes a one of a kind protective cap that will hold clipped fillings to eliminate mess. This ideal nail clipper will not splinter, crack or break your pet’s nails. This tool takes a bit of the nail gently each time giving your cat or dog a pain-free trim and your home will always be scratch and snag free. PediPaws require two double A batteries (not included) and measures 2.0 X 11.0 X 5.0 inches.

Yes - It Works Kinda

I was able to acclimate my dog to this after some modest effort. Despite my best efforts to be calm, authoritative, but patient with clipping, she was just afraid for her life!

So the PediPaw works, but it’s pretty mediocre result anyway! The guide only allows you to use a narrow band of the sanding head, so it wears out FAR too quickly, but much worse, it’s just powered by 2x C cell batteries. People keep saying the batteries wear out too quickly, but that’s not true, the batteries probably still have 80% of their capacity left when they become useless, but the voltage and amps required to spin the motor adequately, can’t be supplied by anything but brand new C batteries!

This exact same product would be very useful with a rechargeable 3.7v Li-ion battery battery pack inside as it would adequately supply the motor until capacity reaches 15%, then could simply be recharged!

Tried it on both of my dogs. My one dog totally freaked out and did not like the sound or sensation of it. The other dog tolerated it but it took me 15 min before I even noticed a difference. And replacement heads wear out very very quickly.

I have a German Shepherd with large dense nails and always had trouble clipping them and hit the quick occasionally. I didn’t believe it would work when I saw it on TV, so I tried my own battery operated file and she didn’t mind it at all. I ordered one and use it every 2-3 weeks to keep the nails short and rounded so they don’t scratch. I also use it on my Shitzu-poodle mix. No problems. I tried it on a friends dog and she didn’t like it. I turned it on and massaged the top of her paw until she got used to it, then did her nails. She was still nervous, but she let me do them.

Looked easy in the commercial, wished I knew this was a product for a very patient pet owner. My two dogs needed nails groomed fast. Once they heard the sound of this motor whirring, they were in panic. Turned it off. They tried to chew on it. Turned it on again. Panic. Tossed it out and clipped the nails the old fashioned way. Get this if you are willing to do -exactly- as manufacturer recommends. Daily exposure but turned off. Progress to finally turning gadget on. Not for quick, out of the box results. Sorry PediPaws.

You really need to take the time to train the dog to not be afraid of the whirring sound. Once there, which doesn’t take long, your pooch should be cool with having the claws filed. And it works great. Never hit the quick and no bloody hurtful mess. I like mine. Okay, so the battery wears down quickly and you can’t but replacement heads except in the multi-pak size, but that’s the only down side. I took the protective cover off the sander since only the middle was wearing down, which is a waste. Just need to get used to the smell of powdered nails, sort of like burning hair.

The PediPaws itself works fine, I don’t have any issues with it (besides a short battery life). It trims the nails safely and doesn’t hurt the dogs.

The problem is, the dogs don’t like it.

I think it’s the sound of the motor, since they don’t have a problem until it is turned on.

Once it is on the dog will try to get away from me when using it. The dog will calm down after awhile, but the first few minutes it’s a fight to keep the dog still and do it’s nails.

The dog will try to run off and you get worried you might pull a muscle or injure it if you don’t hold it tight under your arm.

Otherwise it works great, the battery life could be longer though.
