Millers Forge Large Dog Nail Trimmer #767 - A Fortunate Dog
You will find it easier to cut the nails of large dogs by holding the nail trimmer closer to the end of the handles for better leverage.
The trimming performance on these is about average. We have found that the guillotine model is a bit better at cutting nails but will obviously be limited by size restraints. The scissor style, while capable of cutting large ranges of dog nail sizes, doesn’t have quite the “bite” and you will need to make sure that you are firm in your hand motion to ensure a clean cut. The guillotine style and the Devin model have an acceptably long handle that makes it easy to create enough power but we do wish that the Ariel Nail trimmer (the smaller scissor model) had a bit longer handles.
These nail trimmers are somewhat similar to the above mentioned trimmer. These trimmers are made simple and strong so that you can easily clip the nails of large dogs. These trimmers are not meant to be used for small dogs.
This trimmer worked absolutely great on my large dog's nails
This dog nail trimmer is best suited for use on medium to large dogs.
Guillotine Style – this is the most common type of nail trimmer. It is especially popular for smaller dogs, as it is extremely simple to use. With this trimmer the nail is inserted into the small metal hole, and the handle is squeezed. The blade slides across the hole, trimming off the excess nail. The downside with these trimmers, is that the blade does need to be replaced with use. Additionally, it does not have the force to trim a large dog’s toenails.These types of clippers allow you to exert a large amount of mechanical force on your pet’s nails. They come in two different varieties, the smaller ones are naturally suited for smaller animals while the larger ones can be used for even the largest of dogs. Make sure you match the size to your animal. Like all of the trimmer types, they offer some distinct advantages and disadvantages.Large Dog Trimmers– These nail clippers are identical to the Miller’s Forge Trimmers. They are simply thicker and stronger to cleanly clip large dogs stronger nails. This makes them clumsy for use on smaller dogs.Also known as Miller’s Forge Trimmers, scissor clippers are great for dogs of all sizes. In my opinion, they are the best dog nail clippers. They have the power to cut cleanly through the thick nails of larger dogs and they are more versatile than the guillotine clippers so you can cut small shavings off at different angles if that is how you like to trim your dog’s nails. Their appearance is very similar to regular scissors with the difference being that the blades have half-moon indentations. When opened, the blades make a small hole in which you can fit the nail. Some people hold the clippers horizontally, some hold them vertically, and you can angle them to clip shavings off the nail. Scissor clippers often come with a safety catch. When it’s in place, it only allows you to clip off a small amount of nail at a time, making it more difficult to hit the quick. Unlike the guillotine clippers, the blades of scissor clippers do not have to be replaced. The drawback here is that they require a little more strength so it may be harder for people with arthritis or a weak grip to use.
