Yes. I do on my Dobermans nails.
Since you say she is scared of the normal clippers you might want to do a slow introduction to the dremel, take it slow. Make it happy.

Dremel is a great idea. My girls hate nail clippers to the point where I can not do it by myself.

One word on dremel though, there are some cheezy pet nails dremels out there. Get something a little more rugged if you have not already purchased one.

I do both, actually. All I have right now to act as a dremel is a PediPaws, and really, for my huge GSDs and Great Dane, it's not a real good tool, but I usually clip the nails with the clippers, then take the PediPaws after and file off the nails, so I don't get the ragged broken nails scratching me after.

Bella hates the clippers, but I've been working hard on it with her, and tonight while I was doing her nails, we had a break through. She was still shaking, and nervous, and hated it, but she just sat there and let me do them. She got lots of treats and verbal praise while I did them. And now they're nice and smooth after being done with the PediPaws.
