Millers-Forge Safety Bar Nail Trimmer
Large Nail Trimmers with Safety Bar
Purchased these (large size with orange handle and lock) to replace guillotine type to clip the nails on my Pem Welsh Corgi. She hates having her nails clipped, and it was traumatic every time. The guillotine type twisted her nails and left a jagged edge. These new trimmers are fantastic. Requires little effort to cut as the trimmer does most of the work. She is still not too happy, but I am taking this opportunity to introduce her to them slowly, every day tickling her toes with them and giving her treats. She looks as surprised as I do when a nail is clipped, as if to say, hey, what just happened! Nice clean edge. Wish I'd discovered them years ago, as does she I'll bet.

I had just broken the old metal guillotine style nail clippers that we've had forever. The metal actually bent!! I purchased a large dog nail clipper at a local pet store and it wouldn't even touch them. It left some nails half cut and wouldn't clip some at all. I got these today in the mail!! What a relief! Super easy and high quality. Great price too!! I love them!! My 150# Malamute doesn't..... but he will when he gets how much less time we have to spend clipping nails.

I highly recommend this Miller Forge dog clipper.
I have owned the Miller Forge dog clipper for close to 40 years and have never had to replace it. It looks and works as well as it did 40 years ago. I recently bought another one to give as a gift to some friends who raise Mastiffs. She and her husband told me that they wish they had found this earlier. It's made of stainless steel so there's no rusting. It's heavy duty and sharp enough to cut even the heaviest and thickest of nails; leaves a clean nail edge so there's no need for buffing off rough edges with a grinder. I think for some people the large size might be a bit of an over-kill to use on teeny dogs or cats in which case I'd recommend the smaller one although I have to admit to not using one. I myself use the large one on my Chihuahuas as well as on my German Shepherds and Bernese Mountain Dogs. (The Berners have BIG thick nails). The hand grip is big enough for a large handed person to use yet comfortable and easy for a small handed person to use as well (that's me). One other little thing that I appreciate about these nail clippers is that there is no useless nail guard that gets in the way. There's nothing to obstruct your vision; nothing that you have to move out of the way. Buy one. You'll like it and it'll last forever.

Very good product.
Very good product, solid, heavy duty, my granddaughter used them on our dogs, worked fine. She originally reccommended these-she is a full time dog groomer.
