I prefer the 2nd pair, although I do not clip my dog's nails anymore. I pay to have them done because my hands shake too much from medications. This way neither my dog nor I have to worry about me cutting his quick. I let someone else worry about that.

I am thinking about getting a dremel... but my worry is with my shaky hands I could still hurt Mojo by accident.

I tried the Dremel sandpaper attachement, it was recommended on another list, but the sandpaper hardly makes a dent on my dogs nails. Do you guys use the stone grinder? I'm told that it heats up a lot and can burn the dogs nails.

Okay, I found the information on the Dremmel, but it's the same that I read previously. I'm going to try it again.

I've heard everyone recommend the Dremel - but my question is how do you use it without your pets freaking out? I think my dogs would end up harming themselves from the pulling and trying to get away. Also, exactly what is it that you use? My husband has a hand held Dremel, but what type of bit do you use? Maybe I'll give it a try.
