Review: Miracle Coat Nail Shaper for Dogs

I was given product for this review. All opinions are my own.


I don’t know if you’re one of those brave souls who can clip your dog’s toenails. I am not. I get his toenails and his hair clipped professionally. When he leaves the groomer, he comes out clean, shorn and happy as a clam, and his little claws are also short, but they are JAGGED and ROUGH.

Typically a few walks on the sidewalk will help naturally file your dog’s nails. But what if it’s cold? What if you live where there is no pavement? What if you just bought a brand-new set of sheets and you do NOT want those jagged nails ripping through them when Sparky pounces on the bed?

Enter the Miracle Coat Nail Shaper. (It sells as the Miracle Care Nail Shaper, but the actual product says “Miracle Coat,” so that’s what I’m calling it.) It’s a barrel-shaped device that fits in your hand and can be easily used to file down your dog’s nails. Just take the nail, roll around the side of the barrel until it’s the shape and texture you want, and you’re done! Some dogs who are ultra-sensitive may not like this, but it is definitely less scary to a dog than clippers or a drill.

Now, you have seen those pedicure devices for dogs that are basically the same as a manicurist’s drill. Sure, they may look easy enough on TV, but I have no knowledge of any pet parent who has successfully used one of those things. I know if I put that running drill in front of Sebastian that he would hide as fast as he could! This is much better.

I don’t recommend using this in place of clipping. If you try to do that, you will end up doing a LOT of filing. And neither you nor your dog have time for that. But it is a great tool to use post-grooming to keep your pooch’s nails smooth!

    Thank you for your honest opinion of this item. I think I will still take my dogs to the groomer. It really scares me that I might hurt them

      I will not do it. I let a professional take care of the cutting. Now, remember this doesn’t replace cutting, but it’s great to use to file down your dog’s nails after they’ve been cut. Usually a vet will cut them for free!

    This looks like a fine quality item. I really like the review on it and will consider now getting this for mine.

    Holy cow, this sounds amazing. I do clip my dog’s nails but they end up sharper and more hazardous than when they were long. I’ve tried using a really coarse nail file on little fella but he isn’t having any of it. This looks like it would be less awkward and scary for him than a long file, I think I might have to give it a try! We don’t have much pavement here for him to wear his little claws down.

    I understand that it shouldn’t be used as a fill-in as a clipper for your dog’s nails, but this could definitely help for in-between times, especially when one of their nails has a snag in it.
