Dog nail dremel

This seems to be the latest thing in dremels and you can get the guard seperate to use on your own dremel.

I wonder if you're better off buying an actual Dremel, or if this product will last just as long...

Good question! hard to judge quality if it's not in the hand. It does come with a 2 yr warranty but, you have to purchase that!

They were discussed recently on one of my show list. If you do a google search (I believe they said) you will get reviews. Which are not good. The battery being the big issue the ones writing the reviews say it last no time. The owner of the company has said that they will have the problem fixed with a new shipment of batteries from China. who knows. I bought just the adaptor it will fit certain dremel. Took almost 3 weeks to get it. Haven't used it yet

I use a regular Dremel. It's worth every penny and useful for other things than just doggie pedicures...

I use a regular electric dremel - I had a rechargable battery one that just did not last long enough to do 2 dogs - maybe the new ones are better. I love my dremel and use the 60 grit sanding drums for it. I even do my puppy nails with it now..... did all 5 puppies today

I just use a regular dremel as well, I'd be concerned the guard would obstruct my view too much. I've never actually seen one like this in person, just what it seems like in the picture.

LOL, I just did nails not even 5 minutes ago

I did one set of nails using the guard on my dremel. It works ok. Would be hard for long nails as the thickness of the plastic is all the room you have to put the nail in as the band is almost touching it. It does keep the dust out of your eyes though which was the main reason I wanted to try the guard

I have a corded Dremel with a hanger and extension plus an older cordless Oster. The Oster is perfect for the puppy but I like the corded Dremel for Walker. I'm going to order a new cordless Dremel so it will last longer. My girlfriend owns a fairly large grooming shop and she uses the Cordless Dremel. This Peticure tool looks a bit bulky to me.

If ya git ta thinkin' yer a person of some influence, try orderin' my dogs around. Cowgirl wisdom.

I have an older corded Oster nail groomer (which is basically the same as a dremel w/ Oster name on it) that works great and is over 10 yrs old. Has a weird size drum 3/8"- so harder to find sandpaper wheels that fit. Most hardware stores carry 1/4" and 1/2" wheels
I have a "tool shop" brand from Menards - this rotary tool is EXACTLY the same as the Peticure one - only in red. I got it because it would go much slower, it was on clearance and came w/ 2 batteries, and a slew of attachments. Battery does not last as long as my cordless dremel brand so it's a good thing there's 2 and quality is not as good as the dremel. I wanted a slow speed one when doing my parrots by myself - a fast one can cause severe damage if they grab it w/ their feet.
I have a newer cordless dremel which I love and is what I use all the time - can easily do 3 dogs w/ plenty of battery to spare and it has enough. I also find the shape/weight of this one much easier to hold/maneuver. It also came w/ a smaller diameter drum which is also easier to maneuver than the larger size.

Hell, you can not beat that price. Many Target stores do not keep them in stock but, even with shipping it's less expensive than my Dremel Multi-Pro Cordless.

That 7.2v Dremel is the one I use for Riley's nails. Being a NiCad, I don't charge until it's about out of juice. The result is that I often don't have enough battery power to do all 4 paws at once. Wish I had two batteries.

The downside of Dremeling nails is the nail dust. Would be nice to have a quiet vacuum attachment to remove the dust during the process.

Those sanding wheels last forever.

I already have a regular dremel and a smaller mini cordless one but what I found interesting is the shield. Lestat keeps trying to stick his nose to the dremel while it's running.

We probably have the same unit that Velmadobe uses on her dogs - and puppies. Java had her 'pedi-pedi' this morning - runs up to hubby when she sees it come out of its case and immediately flops backward into his lap. Funniest thing, always gives me a good giggle. She sits there with her head resting on his chest, calm as can be and he tells her what a good girl she's being. Have to thank our breeder for using a Dremel on the pups as it made using one on Java not a big deal for her to get used to.

I use this nail dremel. It doesn't have a guard on it but I've never found that I needed one.

I clip the nails first with regular scissor-style clippers. Then grind down the sharp edges and get the nail even shorter with the dremel.

I like this method and get the best results by using both tools.

I also will clip the nails first - especially if I've slacked on trimming Goes much faster that way. My show pup I dremel very regularly so there's rarely enough to trim first, but w/ my older guys I don't always do their nails as often.

We have a cordless dremel and the electric one. It does not matter which one we use Jada HATES it when we do her nails. It is such a big ordeal. I don't understand. she has never been hurt when they are done. If my husband says " Jada has crazy nails" off she goes and hides. He has actually resorted to spelling it now.

Our dog is the same way..

We inherited her with horrendously long nails.. and she has her "CH", so it's disappointing that she isn't more used to having it done.

Definitely a 2 person job and I feel horrible because she shakes like she is getting beaten. Even worse because we have to keep at it every few days to try to get the quick to receed.
