Better than the cheap peticure product

posted 5 years ago

I like my dremmel. At first when my husband suggested it I thought great another tool that's what we need and how do you supose I use it on the dogs nails? So I tried that peticure product and it was a joke to me..which led my hubby to getting me the dremel. It is soo easy to use and with me having three dogs of different sizes its easy to adjust accordingly to their needs of filing. Plus I get all these accessaries and replacement parts with it. And it doesn't take those little batteries, its got a recharable one and a charger came with it. Yea you spend a little more money for one..but overall if you want a product that is going to last and be better quality and versatle for use its worth the investment.
The size of the dremel is not that bulky but it is big enough that it does make it alittle awkward to hold. Its not that bad once you practice using it and find a way that works best. The more I use mine the easier it gets. Plus it does get shavings all over...which if you wear glasses like myself you'll not want to wear them while you are filling cause they'll be full of dust. Plus don't do it on nice piece of furniture. It does brush away but just so you know it doesn't have a cover and the nail files go all over.
The sound will be something you got to get your pet use to also. It isn't very loud but it does have a noise. If your pet is sensitive to sounds you'll have to work on it.

Pros: recharable battery, speed set dials, replaceable files, parts easy to get, representable company, multi use tool, safe, easy to use,

Cons: its alittle bulky but not too bad, and you gotta be careful what direction you hold it to file

A classic Dremel

posted 5 years ago

I used a traditional nail clipper once on my 9 yr old dog when she was a puppy and it was not pleasant for her or me! I was lucky to run across a long article written about the virtues of the Dremel over nail clipping - complete with pictures and detailed instructions on how to use. I bought my first Dremel and that's all I will use. My dogs go nuts when the peanut butter and Kong come out - they know it's nail night! They're very tolerant of the tool and the noise, but I NEVER grind a nail more than 2-3 seconds at any one time. I don't want to burn the nails. I go quickly from nail to nail and do each nail several times in a session.

I see there is a new product on TV which is like the Dremel but just has a small opening on one side for the nail - has anyone tried it?

Pros: Quick, easy, nice nail trimmer

Cons: Need to soclialize the dog; noisy

Best tool for nail trims

posted 5 years ago

I hadn't heard of using a Dremel to trim a dog's nails until I worked at a dog training/play day facility. I'd always used regular dog nail clippers and both Bella and I hated them. It was such a nice change to be able to trim her nails quickly and round them to get rid of the sharp edges that usually occurred with regular clippers. There are numerous attachments and speeds, though I typically stick to the same ones to trim nails. Though this isn't the purpose for which this tool was intended, it works great!

Pros: quick, easy, powerful

Cons: sound may scare pets

Convenient Tool

posted 5 years ago

I feel this hand-held tool is a great alternative to the traditional nail clippers. The user is given an ample amount of room for precision and you can take off as little or as much of the nail as you want. Plus, no sharp edges are left behind, just a smooth, even surface.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Noise can scare some pets

Nail Grinder

posted 5 years ago

Great for grinding nails especially on short coated dogs, but you have to be careful not to catch longer hair in the rotary tool. (Ouch!) Some recommend putting the dogs nails through a stocking to grind, but depending on the size of the nails, size of the holes, and skill of the operator- sometime this works, and sometimes you end up catching the stocking and the foot coat.

Pros: Great for dogs who don't like nail clippers

Cons: Have to be careful with long haired dogs
