Re: nail trimmer?
dremel here as well. once i bought it, i spent about a week just laying next to kimba when she was tired and rubbing the sanded part on her nails (dremel off) for a few minutes, then running the dremel (not touching it to her at all) for a couple minutes while petting her. after a week of this, i started sanding her nails, but never more than one at one sitting, as she became impatient at first. i added more nails per sitting each time nails needed trimming. now she just lays and closes her eyes while i work on her nails.
oddly, sable, my rescue dog with a rough past, acclimated to the dremel much quicker, though my first few trials involved a muzzle.
some idiot (me) cut her nails w/ a clipper the day i got her (her nails were hideously long) and got right into the quick. pain for her and blood everywhere. she's more than happy now that i use the dremel.
