I have found it nearly impossible to clip my dogs’ nails. Initially, I thought it was just my first dog that didn’t like getting her nails clipped, but then my second dog protested, and my most recent rescue tried to maul the clippers. When I first started clipping them, it was particularly difficult to cut through the nail. Then, when the clippers finally made it through the nail, the dogs often reacted in pain or panic, even though the quick was far from getting cut.
I’m starting to think it has something to do with the clippers themselves. Perhaps they are too dull? I’ve tried shopping two or three times for different clippers, but with little success. Can anyone suggest nail clippers that might be more effective?
