New York Times' Best Dog Nail Clipper


Millers Forge has been a premium manufacturer of pet grooming and related products that are used by veterinarians, pet groomers and pet owners worldwide for over 65 years.

Not only is this nail trimmer one that will last years if not a lifetime (unlike most that only get worse as you use them), it is also extremely good at its job. The best tool for trimming nails as it's sharp, can take off tiny precise slices and is suitable for most dogs except giant breeds. It produces the quickest, neatest trim and is the least stressful for both - pet and handler. Easy to use, easy to see the nail, cuts thinly and is very sharp for working around the quick.

This nail trimmer is a no-nonsense tool that cuts cleanly, consistently, comfortably, and effortlessly without losing its edge or hurting your hands. The red-handled clipper is easily manoeuvrable and has a metal bar guard to stop you from cutting too much nail at once if you like to use it - most people tend to just move this out of the way in practise though. With the spring-loaded cutting mechanism you get a smooth and clean cut with less noise and more comfort for your dog.

Key Features:

  • Durable plier-style nail clipper
  • Quality-made of stainless steel to withstand years of use
  • Comfortable red plastic grip for secure hold. Please note that the red handle cover can be removed and some find it more comfortable to glue it in place so it doesn't ever slip off.
  • Spring-loaded cutting mechanism for more precise cutting action
  • Easy to use latch to lock the trimmers closed for storage and maintenance, protecting the blades
  • Built-in guard can be moved into position to prevent over-cutting of nails
  • 12.7 cm long, 60g

Good quality clippers. I like the guard to prevent clipping nail too short.

That's great, thanks so much for sharing, glad they work so well for you!

Nail Trimming Revolutionised

These nail clippers really are a gamechanger. Quinn has transformed from a wary participant in nail trims, to insisting (when I err on the side of caution after a few nails are trimmed, and begin packing her mat away) that a nail trimming session surely cannot be over! We're both thrilled with the way the Millers Forge nail clippers cleanly and discreetly slice the thinnest shavings from her nails.

As always absolutely fantastic work from team Jacqui/Quinn! So great to see!! Thanks so much for sharing! <3

The BEST Clippers EVER

These nail clippers are amazing. Great size and nice and light to use. They cut through the nails so easily and quickly. I've finally found the perfect nail clippers for my small dog who was quite difficult when clippings his nails before I started using these, he is so much more calm and comfortable now when clipping his nails.

That is such fantastic news! Him being so much more comfortable will make such a great difference going forward. Thanks so much for sharing!


Super good. My boy does not like having his nails trimmed at all. These are super sharp so I can easily just take the tips :)

Awesome! And over time hopefully he'll enjoy it more. :)

Love these

All the comments are true, these are awesome! They are light and nice to handle/use, and super sharp. They are very quiet and don't make any noise when the cut is made. Having a dog with black nails I love you can take off the tiniest sliver at a time, so no worries about taking too much. If you are thinking about purchasing a pair, just do it! You will love them😊

That's fantastic. It really is one of those that you never want to go back on! :) Thanks so much for sharing!
