teach dog to trim her own nails?

Does anyone have experience teaching their GSD to file its own nails? This article makes it sound easy, so I may try it. I especially need it for foster dogs; they often have long nails, and I may not have enough time to teach them to allow me to trim them easily. (I use a Dremel for my own dogs, but it took time to get each one started.)

Very, very interesting, and it seems quite easy. Diabla loves to dig and I think this would be self-rewarding for her. I think I'm going to give it a try.

I have my doubts about the ease with which you can get them to do the back feet but I may give it a shot for the front. Something new to try anyway!

That's what I was thinking, too. But I have an easier time doing the back ones, so any help in the front will be welcome.
