Moochie's nails are all black, and trying to cut them is scary because I don't want to cut the quick. I have to pay $24 at my vet to get her nails trimmed, but when they bring her back to me, I can't tell anything has been clipped. (I guess they are afraid of cutting the quick too.) It didn't take long for Moochie to figure out how to use the Scratch Square. She loves her treats and she goes to town scratching and throwing it around to get them to drop! Now I can definitely tell her front nails are shorter. This is a great toy and tool. So happy I found it thanks to @ataleof2pitties.
Both my dogs love these! They love getting the treats out and I LOVE that they are filing their nails while playing. I will be sure to keep refills on hand. Thanks for making such a great product.
My dogs don't even know, that its nails time😃
I bought this for my GSD. She will NOT let me, or anyone else, get near her nails unless she’s sedated.
I saw the Scratch Square on another page I follow and decided to order one. I filled it with treats and immediately the GSD starting working to get the treats out. Even after only one use I could see where her nails had been filed a bit.
My pittie was so jealous I had to get her one, too. She hasn’t quite figured it out yet. I put treats in that came out easily so she just tossed it around and up in the air until they fell out, lol.
So make sure the treats you use are not easy to get out. This works great for us, it was well worth it for me.
I can't believe how well this works! My dog loves it when I play with him. I like to stand on the handle to add resistance and the course Kicks had his nails trimed in the minutes. Thank you!
I was skeptical but it works. I might have put the holes on the sides instead of where the handle is.
Our little girl hates her nails cut! She loves treats and enjoys a challenge. This concept worked great for us! she keeps her nails filed through fun. Have to figure out the back and due claws is all. LAUGH OUT LOUD
I initially got this for my GSD because she will not let me trim her nails. They get so long and I get worried about her hurting herself.
So as soon as the Scratch Square came I put some treats in it and it worked! She couldn’t leave it alone. I can already see where her nails have been filed down a little.
Her pittie sister was so jealous I had to get another one for her.
I’m so happy with this product, if you’re unsure and your dog is treat motivated, go for it!
My dog is averse to any tool coming near his paws. I've tried the Dremel, traditional clippers, having a buddy, enticement with peanut butter, and even the vet. Always, he was distressed. I was sceptical that he'd use this properly and not just try to chew it or flip it to spill treats out.
It actually worked after a few minutes of training him to smack it. I put it down for fifteen minutes every other day. He slowly is shortening his nails to a healthier length and he's happy about it!
My only regret is not buying the biggest size. I have a larger golden retriever and he could definitely use the bigger area.
If your dog doesn't have a problem with nails being clipped/grinded down, then this wouldn't be that useful. But if your dog is anything like mine, it's a game changer for us.
This Scratch Square is wonderful. It took my picky pup a few times with it before she really loved it. Now it’s part of our daily routine for both nail care & mental wellness. We love it.
Its a dog toy. It files his nails. IT WORKS! The only trim he got regularly were nail grinds on the sidewalk during walks but even that became touch and go due to my dog aggressive pooch. A true nail clip could only be done once yearly at the vet after i had given him some medication to make him loopy and they administered twilight! This product is genius and deserves all of the acclaim it will get! Thank you!!!!
My dog loves the toy and this has helped reduce our monthly mail trimmings.
This item i bought for my Staffie Bull Terrier, and was looking for some way to keep her nails on front paws trimmed. Numerous trips to the vets made her anxious, aggressive in some cases and she was completely too stressed when her nails needed trimming.
I couldn't believe how amazing this product is. Filled it with her favourite treats, and if by magic after two days, her front paws looked lovely and well manicured!!!
What a fantastic product!!
She loves her new toy, wears her out after hours of fun. One very happy owner, and a very happy dog!!
Great! Thanks 😊
My pups love this toy and scratcher
Debra created Scratch Square for Trevor in 2018, after he had a horrible experience at the groomer, which resulted in him being deathly afraid of all attempts to trim his nails.
Searching for another method, Debra learned there wasn’t a suitable grooming option for Trevor without medical sedation. Debra discovered that Trevor’s natural instincts would have him claw at an object to open it up.
It took 2 years of design and material testing to come up with the perfect multi-function, stress-free dog puzzle, that also trims nails.
We’re proud to finally share Scratch Square with the world!
