Peticure dremels buyer beware

NOTE: This is a peticure NOT pedicure as title states!!!

I ordered a peticure dremel Oct of last year with a 2 year warrenty. I thought it was a good idea for young or small dogs, dogs w/ fear issues, and dogs w/ lots of fringe on feet that hair might wind up in a regular dremel. Knowing the amount of use it would get in the shop I ordered the "high power" one, 69.00 and approx 8 uses later the motor locked up, I sent it back and they sent me a new one which lasted a whopping 3 months and locked up again. Now mind you I dont use it on large nails nor do I use it exclusively, I have a Craftsman dremel I use most of the time.
I called the company and told them that I would like my money back she told me that I was past the 30 day return policy. I told her that the first lock up was past the 30 days and the second one had the same problem.
Long story short they refused to stand by their product so I am informing all groomers BEWARE of both peticure and pedipaws they are very, very weak in the motor ( any pressure slows motor ) and they cant with stand more than 8-12 dogs use before lock-up occurs. And you will not get your money back.

Actually, the Pedi-paws product is what drove me to learn how to use traditional trimmers correctly. Normally 6-8 miles of running keeps the feet neat and trim. But my two floppy eared dogs had issues that kept them from the daily run. Their nails grew and I dug one of the "as seen on TV" boxes from the closet (I now have three since many people seem to hate them). Useless. The **** thing failed on my four pound dog, so there was no point in even thinking about the Saint. Luckily I had no problem trimming either of their nails.

Now, what to do with the other two boxes...¿?
