These clippers are great. They make it easier to trim my yorkies nails without the hassel of fighting with them. They even have a locking mechanisim on them to keep little kids from getting hurt with them. I always use my clipper right after Allies bathtime that way the nail is softer and easier to cut. These clippers are handy to have around especially on a trip or vacation just stick them in your purse and you will always be prepared if your little one gets a hangnail or anything just snip it off with these.
