LuckyTail - innovative and safe for your dog nail grinder

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.

The device

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 grinding

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.

!Safety Tip: Once your pet is comfortable with LuckyTail, make sure to get their paw hair out of the way. If your dog has long fur, trim it prior to the grinding or use your hand and fingers to hold it away from the grinder’s spinning disc during the procedure. If you are new to using LuckyTail, use the protective cover that will prevent you from trimming your dog’s nails too short.

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.

Steps for grinding the nails with Luckytail Nail 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.

!Safety Tip: If your pet has light-colored nails, spotting the quick will be easy. However, if your dog’s nails are black, you will need to look from the bottom of the nail to spot its concavity.your dog’s nails too short.


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.

Looking for extra grinding heads?

For best results, our team strongly recommends changing the grinding heads on your LuckyTail Nail Grinder regularly. This ensures that your grinder is always clean and sharp, providing a smooth and pain-free experience for your dog.

Replaceable heads are made from high-quality material and professionally designed to fit your LuckyTail Nail Grinder. The key to grinding your dog’s nails properly is using the correct head for their nail type.


LuckyTail Grinding Heads come in three distinct varieties – Regular, Super Soft, and Extra Hard. The Regular heads are the most versatile and are designed for general grinding and shaping. The Super Soft heads are perfect for dogs with thin and brittle nails and are preferred by puppy and small dog owners. Lastly, the Extra Hard heads are perfect for larger dogs with thick and tough nails.

Key points:

We recommend grinding your pet’s nails once every two weeks or when you notice their nails are almost touching the floor. If you trim your dog’s nail regularly, the process will only take few minutes to complete. If you have a small puppy, introduce the LuckyTail Nail Grinder to them as soon as possible so they can get used to the process. Prior to trimming, make sure the grinding head is coarse and rough. Repeated use will make it smooth and less effective. If you notice that grinding your dog’s nails takes more time and effort than before, it’s probably time to replace the grinding head. Grinding is virtually painless when it’s done properly, although your dog may need to become accustomed to the vibration of the grinder head against his nails. Remember that treats and pets go a long way in making this a positive experience for your furry friend. If done properly using a LuckyTail Nail Grinder will help you achieve a smooth tip that looks quite natural, rather than the jagged tips that many trimmers leave behind. Also, you’re far less likely to expose the quick and cause bleeding. We hope this gives you a better idea of how to use a LuckyTail nail grinder on your dog.
