If you're worried about trimming your dog's nails, you're not alone. Many pet owners are intimidated by the thought of clipping their dog's nails. They worry that they will accidentally clip the quick, causing their dog a lot of pain. For this reason, nail grinders are a more appealing option than traditional nail clippers for many pet parents.
There are pros and cons to using nail grinders, but overall they are very safe and effective. Grinders file down the nail slowly, which makes the user feel more comfortable. While there is still a chance that you could file the nail too short and expose the quick, it's much less likely when using this type of grooming tool.
You should know that it does take a lot longer to grind the tip of the nail down than it does to simply clip it off. For dogs that do not enjoy grooming, dragging out this process may do more harm than good.
Grinders also make noise and cause a small amount of vibration on the paw. This will upset some dogs, but with time and gradual training, they will probably get used to it. Still, nail grinders won't be a suitable grooming tool to use with all dogs.
If you think a dog nail grinder would be a suitable tool for your pup, the Andis Cordless Nail Grinder is a great option! It is designed to work very quietly and features 2 speeds. Lucky for you, we're giving one lucky pet owner the chance to win a cordless nail grinder for FREE!

FREE Dog Supplies That You’ll Receive
Andis is a well-known company in the grooming industry, and they understand that the buzzing noise of most nail grinders will frighten some dogs. That's why they've created this grinder to be exceptionally quiet.
It also features two speeds – normal and turbo. Turbo spins faster to file the nail quicker. It can also be beneficial if you're using this tool on a large breed dog with especially thick nails.
The Andis Cordless Nail Grinder only weighs about 1/2 pound, so you can use it for a very long time without suffering hand fatigue.
As the name would suggest, this trimmer is cordless. That is a HUGE benefit over other products. When you're shopping for a nail grinder, a cordless option should definitely on your list.
You'll be moving the grinder from paw to paw and maneuvering it at different angles. If you have to worry about a cord getting in the way, it will get quite frustrating. Plus, having a cord hanging over them may scare a timid dog.
The Andis Cordless Nail Grinder has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with a run time of about 3 hours when it's fully charged. It only takes about 1 hour to completely charge the battery if it dies. And, you can still use the grinder if it's plugged in, which is nice if you run out of power in the middle of trimming your dog's nails.
