As responsible dog owners, we all know how important it is to trim our dog’s’ nails. However, many still have doubts that using a nail grinder is the best way to do that. This article will explain how to properly use the LuckyTail Nail Grinder, and give you some tricks to ensure a pleasant experience for both you and your pooch.
LuckyTail is an electric cylinder-shaped nail grinder with a high-quality grinding head on top covered by a safety cap to protect your dog’s nails from overcutting. The device is wireless and USB rechargeable, allowing you to use it anywhere and anytime.
LuckyTail has a two-speed setting that you can adjust according to your pooch’s nail thickness and your own comfort. The low speed is great for puppies, senior dogs, and those with very thin nails, while the high speed is perfect for adult dogs with thick nails.
The grinder is easy, safe, and intuitive to use, however, for best results, it is essential to follow the instructions.
Before you begin the trimming process, let your dog become comfortable with being around the device. Show them the nail grinder and let them get close, touch and sniff it. Then, turn on the device and let them get familiar with its sound. After that, gently rest the grinder to their feet so they can get used to its gentle vibration.
It’s important to make sure your pet is comfortable by the time you begin the grinding process. Remember, some treats and cuddles can go a long in making your dog feel safer and helping them develop positive associations with the grinder.
When you sure your pet is comfortable with LuckyTail, set your grinder to the low-speed setting. Working on one nail at a time, tilt the device at a 45-degree angle and gently start grinding the top of the claw from the inside curve of the nail bringing it down slowly.
Repeat this process several times in short sequences. To avoid overheating the dog’s nail, make sure to stop and pause at least every 5 seconds.
After taking off the sharp tip, apply the grinder in a circular motion around the tip to polish it smooth. Leave about 0.08 inches of the nail to the quick – the pink part of the nail where blood vessels and nerve endings pass through.
After finishing one nail (or when you feel your pooch needs a break) reward them with cuddles and treats. It is the best way to get them to associate LuckyTail with something fun and pleasurable.
Repeat the entire process on each of your dog’s nails.
