Transcript:Use an Electric Pet Nail Trimmer

Hi, my name is Anastasia Dubuque and I’m here with my friend Kevin to show you how to use an electric pet nail trimmer.

Assemble the Electric Pet Nail Trimmer

Start by assembling the trimmer. First place the new filing head on the tip of the trimmer. Then place the washer and tighten the screw. A small Phillips head screw driver should do the trick. Next put on the orange protective cap, insert the batteries, tighten the back, and your ready to begin trimming.

Prepare Your Dog for Nail Trimming

Before using your trimmer, choose your dog’s favorite treat. Spend time properly introducing the device to your pet.

Gently Trim Nails with Electric Pet Nail Trimmer

Hold your pet’s paw and move his fur aside revealing the nails. Take your pet’s paw and support a single nail with your thumb and forefinger. Make sure to give him a treat to distract your pet. Good boy! Give him a treat as reassurance.

Next, do an entire paw. Alternate nails and only file each nail for 3 to 5 seconds. You’re done! Good job Kevin. Thanks for watching and to learn more visit us at About.com.
