I was just curious because I did nails today. I dremel everyone once a week and never use clippers. Because they're kept pretty short there's never really been a need for me to clip them back before dremeling.

I clip them once a week and dremel before shows.

Do you want your dog to respect you because you demanded it, or because you truly earned it?

Less often than I used to need to?

Bailey's could still be done weekly I'm sure but I only get to do them about once a month now that she's living with my mom.

Buzz's I need to do hardly ever, and I think I've trimmed Gaby's twice now. I do need to keep an eye on hers and start doing dremel work when she starts taking treats better!

Gage get dremeled every 7-10 days, Bristol get clipped every month...maybe. Diesel is my problem child and I need to clip his every 4-5 days or he chews on them.

For those that clip and dremel, is there a reason you clip instead of always dremeling?

I clip Nola's nails every 1-2 weeks now. I was doing 2x a week to get her quicks down, but now that they're shorter I can do it less. She won't tolerate a dremel, no matter how much conditioning to it I do.

Less often than I should - probably about every two weeks.

I think clipping is faster. I only dremel when the mood strikes me and I want to take the extra time to smooth and round everything. In general I much prefer clipping.
