Grinding your dog's nails with a Dremel tackles two chores with one tool. When you cut your dog's nails with a guillotine cutter or a scissors type cutter you still need to go back to the nail and file it down to get rid of any sharp points or edges that may snag. A Dremel grinds down your dog's nails, making trimming easy and high-tech. The Dremel is the easy part. Getting your dog used to the feel of the vibration and the sounds of the tool may be a little tricky.
If your dog has any anxieties over the sound or the feel of the Dremel, pair the Dremel with food. Introduce the tool to your dog before it's turned on and give him a treat. Turn on the Dremel, let him hear it, let him sniff it without touching it with his nose, and give him a treat. The first few times you Dremel his nails, be sure to have lots of tasty treats around to give to him. This will be a quick and easy procedure, and he'll get used to it easily with the help of some tasty treats.
Bringing a power tool into your dog’s grooming sessions can be dangerous but when done right can also be paw-tastic. This is an easy way to get your dog's nails in Top Dog shape. Once your dog's nails are neat and trim, he may enjoy a pedicure with beautiful colors on those nails.
