Okay everyone. Nadia turned seven last october and I've noticed her nails are becoming longer. With all the cement around the house she would just grind her nails down and that was that for me. I have bought nail clippers many years back but must admit that I've used them maybe five times throughout the years. It seems Nadia is showing the first signs of arthritis and I now need to focus on that and her nails.
I read that most dog owners have a dremel. What style or speed, size of head do I look for, for my Nadia who happens to weigh 70lbs. What does a dremel look like? Appreciate your pictures since I am more a visual learner.

I have a 7.2V cordless dremel. If you look on Amazon it's about $80 but was on sale for about $40. It has two speeds.

I love it. I can do Jax's nails and I don't hurt her anymore.

I have the 10 speed MultiPro 395. I've had it for years and it's still good as new. I also purchased an inexpensive accessory kit for it on ebay so it can be used for engraving, woodworking, etc.

i have pretty much the same one as brt. its the Dremel Variable Speed MultiPro, model 300 n/25. about $53 at walmart. i had the cordless one, but it was always running out of steam before i finished the job. the corded dremel was a big improvement.

I had 2 cordless ones, the newer 10 volt battery ones. Returned them to lowe's within 2 months of owning them. Both started to smell like smoke, then only 1 gear, high. I might try a corded one later.

This is mine.

I didn't exactly need all the extra heads, but it was on sale for the same price as the basic one so I just bought it. The different heads have come in handy a few times but I mostly just use it for the dogs' nails.
I've had it for quite a while - it even got left out in the rain once and it's still going strong.

Does anyone use the one made by Oster?
I've been looking online at these, but haven't made up my mind yet. The instructor at puppy class said she'd go over nail trimming and using a dremel.
