I use the Dremel nail grinder instead of clippers.

A video on how to use:

I combine manual nail clip with brushing, which is a pleasure for the dog. Stand- brush dog. Down- lie on side and clip the nails with much praise.

Dremel here! Russell and the puppy Scarlet come unwound over the nail clippers, but the dremel is fine. I've been dremeling Scarlet's nails every Friday. I use the cordless Dremel Micro with a diamond carbide sanding drum.

Dremel if their nails have been kept up pretty well, otherwise a combo of nail clippers (safari brand is excellent, using it on my current pup) and the oster lithium ion dremel. It's cordless and rechargeable, has two speed settings. I have no complaints, though it could be loud for some sound sensitive dogs. The combo of the two work nicely when you're dealing with nails that are a little long because you can cut them down a bit with the clippers and round off the tips with the dremel without being afraid of hitting the quick.

You may be asking just in general for future plans, but if not.... I'd wait a little longer in the relationship with this dog.

I like the dremel 7700 can be purchased on Amazon smile or Home Depot. I use the medium grit sandpaper for the dremel head. I like the safari nail trimmer the best. I do a little of both to get them comfortable with both. There are many dremel and nail trimming threads on here.

this. I am TERRIFIED of clipping her nails now bc the first time I did it I cut a tiny bit too close to the quick and it did bleed like a drop or two - but poor pup whined bloody murder for about 10 mins. I'm mentally scarred and she might be too. LOL

How's that battery holding up? Mine lasted less than a year and of course I didn't try to replace it under warranty until after a year
