There is a dremel in my dh's workshop that I can scoop for the dog. Do you normally use the drum sander attachment with your dremels? (I think there is one, but he has more flat circle type sandpaper attachments.)
You want the one that looks like this. Dremel 432 1/2" 120 Grit Sanding Bands 6 Pack -

We have 4 Dremels... 2 corded and 2 cordless. One cordless is just trash ... weak, old, useless, and I ought to toss it. The mini-mite is fair imo - the battery (pretty new, we bought a replacement after the last one stopped holding any charge at all) really doesn't hold for all 4 of Annie's feet, and the drum sometimes hangs up while I'm dremeling. The corded ones are too loud and intimidating for her (Willie just sees a dremel and runs). I have not found any cordless so far that I would recommend, so I'm going to look at the links you guys provided, to see if anything seems better. DH has a "power tool"dremel, but I think that one would remove Annie's feet before I realized it...

Got it, and it's charging! If nothing else it will be a coffee table ornament I can pick up when the dogs are getting in my face too

I have another question, because once when I took Priscilla to her oncologist, she asked if she was dragging her rear paws. I said no, then realized she had just been dremmeled by our breeder/friend.

She told me a good groomer always polishes. So, what do you polish with after the dremmel?

I want to try using a dremel on my dogs nails, as I have made the older girl bleed when she flinched while I was clipping. My question is How do you know how far to sand? Both my dogs have black nails and it terrifies me now after hurting the older one.
