    I've got Mikki nail clippers- had them for quite some years. Seem to do the job fine once hounds have been bribed!!

    I would recommend you get the guillotine type rather than the scissor type unless the nails are fine ones.

    The scissor type can crush the nail rather than cutting it cleanly.

    The Millers Forge brand are good. Another option is to Dremel your dog's nails - the dog needs introducing to it but many take to it better than nail clippers, and you can get a smoother finish.

    I have a pair of these which we all get along well with. They also make a guillotine style if you'd prefer them :)

    Your vet should be able to recommend the best type for your pet.

    I've tried a few but always resort back to human toe nail clippers, the joy of dogs with black claws (can't see the quick) and an emery board

    Just bought a battery powered Wahl grinder which has been very well tolerated
