Good for small dogs
I used to do professionally dog grooming and I can say that while this product is not professional grade, it is great for home use on small to medium sized dogs.

I used to do professionally dog grooming and I can say that while this product is not professional grade, it is great for home use on small to medium sized dogs. For those of you complaining about how long it takes to cut the nails, you are letting the nails GROW WAY TOO LONG. You can't expect a dremel (even a pro one) to take 1/2" or more off the nail. If our salon, we always trimmed with a clipper first if the nails were that long. HOWEVER, if you do own a dremel, you have no excuse for letting the nails get that bad! Too long nails are not comfortable for your dog and can even cause arthritis because they will make your dog walk funny. My rescued Chihuahua's nails were curled over and her poor little feet hurt! It took a lot of work to get her toes back down to normal and now I actually get compliments on how nice her nails look (no pawlish, just well groomed!). Unless you have a very active dog who wears their nails down to stubs, you need to trim every week. I take the tips off every week and it takes less than 10 minutes. This might not be the best product for a large dog with thick nails as it is not as strong as some of the more expensive grinders, but its good for a small to medium sized dog. You can buy a pack of replacement heads for $4.99 (can't beat that), though you do need to buy batteries. Overall a good product, very affordable, but I gave four stars because it isn't the strongest and needs the batteries replaced frequently. If you haven't used a dremel before, I would actually recommend a product like this because its a little bit slower and although it takes longer, it is harder to cut the quick.

it worked well
My cat is hard to hold to brush and so thought this would be easier then a file, It was. The noise did not bother him at all. He did not pull away anymore then his normal behavior so yes i would recommend this.

It's not rechargeable! and the power is very low. There are many other rotary tools that may work better. The bit cover is helpful for keeping the nail dust out of your face. I like that feature.

Works great on my chihuahua! I was getting desperate when my pup wouldnt let me clip his nails and they were getting way too long. As a last option before paying for a groomer to do it i tried pedi paws. Phyll doesnt mind at all it almost seems like he likes it. The only trick I use is holding him as I do it, once he got used it it's been great and saved me so much money.

Keeps the dogs off the couch...
This thing takes ages in comparison to a regular set of clippers. Can't get either of my dogs to sit still long enough for me to file down their nails to the appropriate length (you have to file in short bursts, produces too much heat otherwise). Better off going with clippers, they're quicker and your dogs wont fuss as much.
