    hello everyone this is my first reply here, so bare with me lol... i recently bought a cordless two speed dremel online and its pretty good. i am horrible with the clippers and make my dogs really nervous, and cant even go through with clipping the nails. and if i do cut a nail or two the nail is so sharp after sharp enough to slice skin open. i have a ten week old named winnie, i wait till shes real tired and goes to sleep and she lets me do whatever i want to her. i keep the dremel on low setting and its not too loud (compared to other pet nail grinders ive had in the past). i could imagine it would be harder if she was older and i introduced the dremel.... but ya i highly recommend it! you might have to introduce it slowly though like first just let them smell it and with it off put it close to their paw... then next time turn it on and put it close to paw and so on....

    Hi, I was in Petsmart yesterday, and I was watching a groomer through the window, who was clipping a dog, and also trimming his nails, he had a cone on , the type they use after a surgery. I asked one of the groomers why he had the cone on, and she told me, they used it for dogs who might bite, or bite when getting groomed. It allows the groomer to clip and cut their fur, and to clip their nails, without the dog being able to bite the groomer. The groomer stands behind the dog, and is able to groom the dog, and the dogs face stays facing forward, and they are not able to turn their head around to bite. This may be something you or your groomer could try, and see if it works. I thought it was a great idea. Good luck. Please keep us posted and share what worked for you.

    This is a 2 man job in our house. I hate clipping his nails I'm so worried ill cut the quick. My husband gets the honours, we have guillotine cutters. Main thing for me is to be calm otherwise Dexter can tell I'm nervous and he gets upset and squirms around and pulls his legs back. I try to block his view of my husband and his feet and just rub his tummy, this might sound weird but I also breath in his face, and talk slow and calm. When it's all done he gets lots of praise and cuddles.
