i use the millars forage clippers, they are great long lasting but sharp. after many practice attempts on my dog i have mastered them. I have learned how to take little slivers of nail at a time, making me much more efficient. one of the biggest factors about hitting the quick is to remain calm. we all know that dogs can feed off your energy, so if you panic or someone in the room panics, it heightens the chance of dog freaking out and that can be messy. I have different methods i use for different dogs, but my general rule of thumb is always cut ahead of where you think you should. i have noticed on some breeds the quick seems to stay long. Pitbulls, dobermans, pugs and bulldogs are some of them.
