Default Nail Dremmels

I have to buy one for the dogs, since the new place has hardwood and Im so worried the dogs are going to wreck my lovely wood floors, so they are getting weekly dremmels.

But I have no idea where to start with dremmels, what works and what does'nt?

So what are every ones prefrences when it comes to Dremmels and what should I stay away from?

Thanks

I use the Dremel MiniMite. Its "low" is a bit higher than the low on their pet dremel, but the "high" is the same. Fairly similar machine and I think the price is pretty much the same too. I bought mine on clearance somewhere for $15 or $20 and I love it.

I've also used my regular 5-speed Dremel on the lowest setting. It also does the job but I like the cordless one better just for the sake of being easier to manipulate. BUT... remember to charge it frequently, or buy a second battery, because the battery dying when you're halfway through is very annoying. =P

I have a corded one, think the cordless would be a bit more handy, but I didn't buy it for dog nails.

All I can say is I think it's the best thing I ever tried. I've been clipping forever till just recently and I don't know why I let that thing sit in my garage and not think of using it on the dog's nails. They're awesome.

I have a mini-mite too, and I LOVE it! We have a non-dremmel at work (it's some off-brand rotary tool) and it's horrible - it's really big and heavy; also the motor just doesn't feel as good of quality as the dremmel. Every time we use it, we just say we're one day closer to when the thing finally dies and we can buy a dremmel.

Dremel multi pro with 10 speeds. I didn't buy it for dog nails. A cord can be a pain, but cordless can sometimes lack power and run out of juice prematurely.

I have a corded multi speed Dremel and I did buy it for the purpose of dog nails. I have a cordless one too, but it dies (well, slows down/loses power considerably) after just one dog. My Doberman breeder has always used the corded one, and so I decided to get one for myself. Much better than the cordless one! I do use an extension cord with it though just to make sure the cord stays out of my way.

I think this is the one I have. I'm not at home so can't check.

Yeah to be honest the cord has never bothered me at all.
