    Amazon.com: Dremel 7300-PT 4.8-Volt Pet Grooming Kit: Home Improvement

    I use the dremel pets version - it comes with the attachment when i bought it. High speed. Just dab it on the nail. Move to the next one, repeat and then when you are done go back to the original nail. Key is you don't stay on one nail, just quickly and don't push the dremel to the nail, just tap it. You'll see that this is an easy task for you. Good Luck.

    it is a nerve that is in the center of the nail... if you cut the nail too short it clips the quick and they will bleed for a long time, and when their adrenaline kicks in, it will start to bleed again

    i cut Lola's nails about twice a month with a normal guillotine cutter, try to get her when she's out of the tub when her nails are a bit softer. Her back toes are black. I usually cut where the new growth is, like a hangover. Then I cut very thin slices until I see more flesh than nail. I think I should cut more, but it's mostly flesh by the time I stop. Then Lola loves to get her nails filed with an emory board.

    I taught her how to like it with LOTS of treats. Now if the treats are handy I will give her some throughout, but if not, she still tolerates it. She's 4 yrs old now.

    Yup! This is where im at with Dooley. He loves me to rub his paws and lets me do anything to him I need when it comes to Bulldog maintenance. But when it comes to actually cutting his nails hes Usane Bolt and is gone. Hes not having any of that.
