Ok whats up with this dremel?

I found my old dogs nail dremel (my mom never used it on him, he wasn't much for getting his nails done) and I gave it a shot on Gandalfs nails, every time it seemed like it was going good but if it came into contact a little too much the dremel would just make a putter noise and stop. It took me 45 minutes to do one of his paws, boy do I have a patient dog or what LOL. I'm guessing this thing is defective or i'm just doing it wrong? I even changed out the batteries and it spins around fine right until it touches the nail a little too close. I ended up shaving a tiny bit off at a time and keeping the dremel barley touching the nail, it took forever. Any ideas of what might be wrong with the darn thing?
Thanks!

PS this is the one I have:

Sounds like the motor is too weak

We use a dremel brand one (no guard) with adjustable speed and it works awesome

Yeah it sounds like it’s broken - I love this dremel had it for over three years and works great. It has a high and low speed. On big dogs I use the high speed. Pups,small dogs or getting dogs use to the dremel the lower speed.

I have the higher end, two-speed, battery operated dremel that's not just for trimming nails. But every time I've seen it act that way it was (a) low battery, or (b) defective battery. If your dremel has been stored for years without use, you probably need to buy a new battery.

and look into buying a diamond wheel for trimming nails. Honestly, it's the best thing I've ever purchased. And perfect for nails

I can't get over the fact that your dog let you do that for 45 minutes.
