My dogs practically line up to have their nails trimmed, they know a slice of cheese is waiting afterwards. Especially my dobie, he will sit politely and present his paws one at a time for me. Never hit a quick except once a long time ago on my pit bull who ironically has clear nails, she hasn’t forgotten and isn’t as comfortable as the boys but is fairly easy overall. I tried a dremel once and I couldn’t even get near them, they were terrified I think of the noise. Since they’re so good for the clippers I haven’t attempted again.
