Best place to buy or sharpen clippers? My clippers are dull and the boys are not happy about that. Everytime I try a basic pet store though I can only find guillotine style clippers or kind of junky other ones. I need sharp clippers for these guys' big nails.

I've given up on finding a place to sharpen them. I buy clippers at petco, and when they get dull I buy a new one. They're inexpensive enough that I don't mind. When I used the guillotine style clippers (I didn't know any better, and they were recommended by the pet supply store), I was able to buy replacement blades.

I have a pair from Jeffers, similar to this one (my model seems discontinued):

They also have one that comes with replaceable blades, but I know nothing about it:

As for sharpening, I would recommend trying a large dog show in your area. Usually there's someone there with a booth sharpening things. Amanda, Shoreline Dog Fanciers & Malibu Kennel Club are this weekend in Costa mesa at the OC fairgrounds, Thursday - Monday.

my go-to clippers are these pliers-type clippers. they're plenty sturdy for big thick nails. the guy I send my blades to for sharpening will do my nail clippers too, so if you are going to a show it may well be worth tucking yours in a bag and asking a vendor if they're willing. Most people don't bother with sharpening, they just replace as needed.

Bettyna, congrats on going clickity-clack free, that's great!

Biz decided to make one last attempt to convince me she doesn't need her nails trimmed. That earned her a session of sit-still-and-have-your-feet-messed-with. There was nail polish in my line of sight. Things progressed.

Ha! That's amazing!

My house is too quiet without toenails clicking.

Wish I could hear no clicking....I clip Ranger's nails as short as I dare, but I think the way he walks he will always click...His hind feet ones are very short as he runs them off when playing fetch and I only take the small tip off and they still click...

*** Ha, just read the whole thread and learned something new. Guess I will be trying to trim more often to shorten the quick a bit :)
