In search of a demo on dremel use

Any chance someone has a video that they could post showing the use of a dremel for their dobes nails? I've been reading a lot here on DT and following links all over the place; but if anyone has a video that they could share, I would love to see it and would really appreciate it.
Thanks!

This is not a video but it taught me all I needed to know and has excellent close-up photos. I think it is great.

Thank you for the link!
Is it really not that difficult to see the quick? I've been doing Roxy's nails with clippers, but I get too scared that I'll hit the quick and I only take off a tiny amount. So we end up going to PetSmart to get her nails done with the dremel.
I really want to learn how to do this myself. Is it pretty easy to do?

I got a first hand demo -
my suggestion would go to your vet and ask them to show you on your dog so you know EXACTLY what's what.

Many many many HUGE thank you's to Doberkim for taking the time to show me when I stopped in and asked - Tucker's talons are looking amazing and are half the length they were a month ago

Tucker is absolutely NASTY about his feet being done, like when he first came to us he'd take your face off if you tried to touch his feet. Clippers are a huge no no for him.
Dremeling has been wonderful and although he's still a bit iffy about his feet being messed with he does allow me to grind his nails down now. I think you're going to be really happy with the results and it's worth the effort

Thank you for the suggestion. Sorry your guy is fiesty with his feet. Roxy doesn't seem to mind when I mess with her feet. I'm actually trying to handle them more so that she gets used to me touching them. I know she's really good for the people at PetSmart; so I guess that's good.
The link that was provided suggests the Dremel Multipro...do others agree with that suggestion, or is there another type that is highly recommended?

I love this site, had printed off a copy a few months ago and plan to include it in my puppy kits next time.

if you quick a dog DO NOT make a big deal out of it. I worked in a groom shop for over a year and many times new people quicked dogs and the dog didn't care until the person started freaking out. Your nerves play a part as well. Its a learning process. I would make a vid but my dog has while nails, lol.


There are three kinds of people: those who can count and those who can't.

Dremel Tools - Cordless Rotary Tools

that's the Dremel I got and it's been perfect for us
It's small and portable - I leave it beside the couch so nail trimming happens when we're nice and relaxed and cuddled on the couch - along with a WHOLE bunch of cookie, really really special extra stinky salmon flavored cookies which we bribe Tucker with

Not having the cord to deal with makes it easier IMHO, that way you can take trimming to whatever area you need it to be in.
I actually did what was suggested with getting Tucker use to the Dremel! And I didn't even know I was doing it right LOL

triciakoontz?
awesome link thank you! Got a few more pointers from that and am happy to realize I'm doing his nails right

you will hit the quick - go ahead and accept that. It isn't the end of the world and as technique improves, you will hit it less and less. Keep some quik-stop powder around. But yes, if you follow the DoberDawn dremel instructions to the letter, in good lighting, you will see the quick before you hit it - again - technique and practice in having that much control with a squirming dobe.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all of the feedback. I hope to get a dremel this week so I can start introducing Roxy to it. In the meantime, I'll get her trimmed up at PetSmart so that her nails don't get too out of control before I start using the dremel on her.

Thanks again!

I love my portable Dremel - can't remember if it is the one recommended in the link or not. Be sure to change out to fresh sandpaper after each time you Dremel. It is really true that you will quickly develop skill - after just a few times you'll be confident.
