Default Dremel Training

Who's done it? How did you do it?

Obviously I have a basic game plan of CC/DS, starting with the dremel off, etc, but I'm curious if anybody has any insight into the details or any tips?

Patience, which I've yet to muster. PW & Springerlover have done it though incase they miss this.

That would be my issue too. After like 2 minutes of clicking and treating, I'm tempted to just sit on the dog and grind their nails. But Blossom's nails grow really fast, they're black, and she hurts me with them constantly. I'm keeping them in check with regular trimmings but it would be nice if I could round them off. The bruises on my legs agree.

Sloan will take it if Denis is holding her, hell I could take off her tail I think, but Backup hates his feet touched even in a gentle caress sans nail clippers or dremel so I totally get it.

I'm pretty sure it is a myth that you can dremel nails. Everyone just claims you can, to make the rest of us feel bad that we can't get our dogs to tolerate it.

I'm on to y'all.

I have never had very much trouble. Shadow loves to have his done, he comes flying when I tell him it is time to do his nails. I honestly think he understands he can get up off the floor easier. At his age and bad hips, it really does make a big difference.

Stormy seemed to just watch and learn. I believe the easiest way in the beginning it to have them lie down and tell them to stay. I get in the floor with them and have at it.

Good Luck, just be patient.

Sadly, mine are not going to be swayed by baby talk, lol. So if I'm going to do it, it's going to take a concrete training plan.

Shamoo allows it, I think it's because she's too old to care anymore and she's partially deaf which helps deaden the fear inducing sound.

The rest... I have decided to clip when it's a desperate situation.

Mackenzy allows it, because she's Macky. Keeva - forget it, she's a wench about all things nails, so I have our groomer do it because Keeva won't fight her as hard. Blossom is doable for clipping, I do it at work and put her on the grooming table to take away her options, lol. Right now her quicks are nice and short and her nails are a perfect healthy length, I just need to keep them that way.
