What dremel to get?

I was wanting to get my boy used to getting his nails filed via dremel, but I'm unsure what type to get. Any suggestions and/or tips?

Run to the hardware store and get the most powerful one you can. I prefer the one with a cord because it's easier to hold, but some like the cordless because you aren't limited by the cord.

I don't mean to jack this thread but is a one of those worth it? I've a hard time cutting Zeevas nails. I think it hurts her although I've never made her bleed. Now she runs from me when she sees the clippers on my hands...are they more at ease with one of those?

Amina - It's absolutely worth it. I always get Jax's quik when I cut with clippers. You do have to condition them to not react to the noise and the vibration on their nails but I love it.

The dog is at ease once you decide they are going to have their nails trimmed no matter what and they are going to sit there and take it. They don't have to like it, but they have to be good about it.

I, personally, think the dremel is easier on the nail than a clipper because the clipper squeezes the nail as it cuts, which isn't comfortable. You are also committed to the clip once started and can't back off if it's too close. The dremel is easier on the nail and a heck of a lot faster, but it's noisy and real easy to take some of your skin off if you let your dog wiggle. The faster you finish the nails, the less time they have to think about how they are dying, and the faster they get to the party when you finish.

Can I ask you here? How you get them conditioned to one? Zeeva is skittish. Her nails are getting very very long and I'm concerned. For some reason Smokey's are always at his hairline. I don't understand why hers grow so quickly and so much while his don't grow at all (?). I've never clipped Smokey's nails but I've clipped Zeeva's a couple times and now she is such wench about it; she goes and hides under a table and if I hold her paw near the clipper she will hurt herself to get away :c...I'm thinking she won't let me get near her nails with a dremel either just because of the way her personality is...
