Trimming your dog’s nails can be a challenge
The flat side is ideal for filing and trimming the end of the nail, reducing the length of the nail. The inner curved side is perfect for filing hard-to-reach places and buffing the top of the nail.
Bona Fide Beauty Czech glass pet files are easy to use. Here are some tips for getting started.
It is best to file your pet’s nails when they are relaxed and comfortable. Position yourself so you can easily and gently hold their paw steady.
Hold the paw steady, but hold it gently.
Simply file your pet’s nails with a light touch, in any direction. Unlike other files, Bona Fide Beauty Czech glass files can file in both directions without damaging the nails.
File carefully, always taking off a bit of nail at a time. Avoid the quick which contains nerves and blood vessels, or the toenails will bleed.
With light colored claws the quick is easier to see, it is the pink section that contains nerves and blood vessels. The quick should not be nicked, or the toenails will bleed. The quick will not be as easily discernible with black nails, so be extra careful.
If you are ever unsure or need advice, consult with your vet or professional pet groomer.
Czech glass pet files are a gentle nail care tool designed for regular use.If your pet has particularly thick or long nails, you can use your Czech glass file alongside other nail care tools, such as pet nail clippers to remove the bulk of the nail followed by your Czech glass file as a finishing touch to shape and smooth the nails edge.
As you file, the gentle abrasive grit seals the keratin layers of the nail together, leaving nails smooth and with no jagged edges. This can also help prevent potential nail splits and chips in the future.
So we’re avoiding those methods and slowly introducing her to this perfect nail file
I’m working with a rescue dog (I’m a trainer) who had previously had her nail quick cut by a groomer and is terrified by a Dremel, so we’re avoiding those methods and slowly introducing her to this perfect nail file,counter-conditioning her to the idea of nail trims. She is slowly associating this file with peaceful, pleasant moments with her owner. This file does a great job reducing and smoothing too-long nails. I will always keep one of these in my toolbox.

Works like magic. It does everything it says it does. It’s also a perfect size, convenient to hold and manoeuvre as needed when grooming the nails of a pretty restless doggy. Most importantly the edge is rounded,so I don’t have to worry about accidents. And it’s washable.
I wash it with warm water and hand soap after each use and use a soft cloth to dry it. Just don’t drop it, it will break!

Czech files are reusable and easy to clean, making them highly economical. Simply rinse the abrasive surface under cool running water and let the file dry out on a soft towel. If desired, the filing surface can be sterilized with a gentle disinfectant spray or solution.
