Default How do your dog's nails get trimmed.

I clip my dogs nails. Maf has dremeled Kaiden's but the rest of my guys want no part of dremeling.

I do the tips of the poodles. For real trims they goto the vet or groomers.

I dremel sometimes, but mostly I clip their nails. I need more sanding bands for my dremel, which is why I've got back to clippers.

When Enzo was in daycare with me at my job though, she never needed her nails clipped because of the pea gravel and the concrete floors. They just wore down naturally.

Clippers. With Juno it's quick and easy so I don't see any sense in getting a dremel. Lucy HATES having her nails clipped, but I don't think she'd tolerate it any better with a dremel. That might just freak her out even more.

I clip the nails. Dremeling is too much of a hassle on dogs this small, I've decided.

dremel--neither of my guys will tolerate clippers--so I went to the dremel and it makes our life much easier! Especially since Wilson has some major toe nails!

I selected cheese because I do like cheese and also because it just depends, I do both. It's faster to trim them with the clippers... but I like the dremel because it leaves them smoother. But usually I trim with clippers. If I get a grooming table it might make it easier to use the dremel so that may change in the future...
