New nail filing system!

Hello, I'm working on a new nail filing system, it is my invention and it is patent pending, I'm posting a link to a video if you could check it out and give me honest feedback good or bad, I would like for this system to help solve the problem of dogs being scared of getting their nails filed, this is a self filing system, you can't see it in the video but under the files there is a smelly treat that the dog is trying to get at, would you buy it and if so how much would you be willing to pay for it.
Thanks!!!

I think that is a very interesting idea, there is only one problem I see with it right now. I have had many dogs that were EXTREMELY food motivated and I could see them potentially filing down to and on their quick if they think there is any chance to get to food. I also don't see how this would work for back paws and dew claws.

This would only work for certain dogs. I have one dog that might use their paws, but my other dog would not. I would also worry that it is only going to file down the front 2 nails mostly, then lightly on the outside 2, and nothing on the dewclaw or the back feet.

Honestly, I wouldn't probably buy it. Wouldn't work for my dogs.

I wouldn't buy this. I don't see how it would file the nails uniformly. I would still have to maintain the back nails and dew claws so I may as well just maintain them all.

Thanks everyone for your feedback!!! I do know this system does not work on all claws, and some dogs will not be motivated to scratch, however I have a real hard time trimming my dogs claws they will not be still and are afraid so this has helped so that I only need to cut the dew claws, one on each paw is much easier than all 10, also the problem I want to solve is when they jump on you not to scratch you or your clothes or scratch the doors to go outside, therefore the back claws can be trimmed at the groomers, kind of like a maintenance in between. Any thoughts?

I scared my dog out of getting his nails clipped--clipped him once to yelp, and now both he and me are scared of the clipping.
I've actually gradually desensitized/conterconditioned (I give him food rewards during) him to having his nails filed. He's relaxing into it now, and I am now able to make a bit of headway, but I'm still learning how to comfortably (for him and me) hold his nails to do this. At the very least, I probably can go back to clippers someday. His back paws need no work as he is walked on road and they file themselves.
Does your contraption work for your dog? I can't exactly tell, but it looks like strips of something abrasive and then food between encouraging scratching? If a dog is inclined to overdo it, it seems an easy fix to simply put it away and take it out again next time.
For myself, I'm happy with having my dog learn to relax while I hold, squish, manipulate and file his claws-it's a good handling exercise, especially if he ever ends up with a thorn or worse that needs pulling. But, MANY pet owners would rather spend less time training their dogs, so your idea would be handy.

Thank you for your response! My Chihuahua is a jumper and when I get home he scratches my legs and it hurts pretty bad sometimes, one day he scratched my Mom's arm and drew blood that's when I thought about this system, he will not let me clip his nails and I can't be taking him to the groomers every week, also I clipped my Shepherd's nails once and sadly it was a blood bath! Never again will I do that, this system has nail file material in the slats it is a rough prototype but it works. And yes you are right you must take it away when the nails are filed down enough, it is not a toy.
Thanks again
