Default Nail Clippers

I won't be able to use the Dremel on Charlie yet because he is to young and his nails are too soft, so...what nail clippers do you reccomend out of these two?

I used human nail clippers until a pup had full nails ... infant , regular and toe. Dremel is good to start at any age to get them used to it. Unfortunately during my breeding years, these weren't an option.

I did/do the same as Grammy. My GSD puppy has very little nails so I just use a regular (human) nail clipper.

So could I use the dremel on Charlie's nails at twelve weeks of age? He won't grow up to be over 20 lbs, so he is a small dog. I will definitely purchase it to get him accustomed to it, but if I can't use it yet I would appreciate if someone could tell me which clipper is better, the fist or the second.

Well, I have the first one (bamboo) and it works ok but sometimes it doesn't clip the nails right. It cracks them and it just makes it more work to fix them.

I use the dremel now but if you were to get the clippers go with the second one.

Okay, so a dremel is okay for a 12 week old pup?

I personally wouldn't use a dremel until the puppies nails are hard and fully developed. Right now his nails are soft and a dremel can rip it off. I would stick to nail clippers for a few months then use a dremel.

If you have a Dremel that has an adjustable speed setting and you use a very fine sandpaper drum, it's absolutely okay to use even on a young puppy.
