This video shows some of the details of how to use a Dremel to grind a dog’s nails. This is an alternative to the traditional clipping of the nails and is the best way to trim dark colored…

    Thanks for showing me how to do this.  I have a big beagle that hates his toes to be touched too much.  I'm going out to get a dermal like you guys have and get to work his paws, now! After seeing you do it, I know I won't hurt my pooch. Great video!!!  Sweet Dogs too!!! Thanks again.

    you have  careful using the dremel,  don't hold it on one nail too long, the nail and toe get warm or hot and makes the dog uncomfortable

    Would always take FOREVER clipping then filing the sharp edges down with an emery board. Both my dog and I would hate nail time.
    Thank god for dremels! Nail time is a breeze and it doesn't wear me out having to manually file down the nails now 😀

    I thought it was very interesting! I have a 1 yr old and I started just like you said. 1 step at a time, but he still gets upset and wants to bite! I want sooooo much for this to be positive experience for both of us! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    What a good dog. I wish my two would calm down. They're getting there. We can do the front feet without a problem but we get to the back feet and it's NOPE! Time to bounce!

    Thanks, this was so helpful! I have a 3 year old Italian Greyhound and when I trim her nails with regular trimmers i still find it doesn't give the cut she needs. I'll be purchasing a dremel now. Thanks again!!

    I use food rewarding for each nail. And slowly decrese the food. It helps a lot if dog is unease with grinding nails. But it is much easier then cliping. For me atleast.

    Your dogs are beautiful. And they're so well brought up! Lol. Let's see if I can get the pug to submit to this without tears and recriminations sigh.

    This saved me a lot of cuts and bruises from those nasty sharp nails that she had. Thanks!

    Great tutorial for a beginner like myself. I have a GS (5yrs old) and a Mastiff (10 yrs old). The older one has severe hip dysplasia now so he can no longer go to the groomers as he will not allow anyone except my husband and I to bath him. Right now his nails are longer than usual because we are both terrified of hurting him. But your video has tremendously helped us, so I just ordered the tools we need. Thanks and blessings!

    Great work but I bet he was pulling away with the second paw and Dremel tool because too much time was spent on one nail so heat began to build up hurting the pup. I bet if a person were to move from nail to nail every couple of seconds going back and forth the heat would not build up and it would go smoother. JMHO.

    What model dremel are you using. Seems to have plenty power the whole time.

    Can anyone here recommend a dremel/nail grinder or brand? This video has convinced me that the dremel may be the way to go

    I'm left-handed, so the rotation will be the other way. Will that be a problem?
