Default Best dremel for nails?

What is a decent dremel for doing nails in a large dog? Finn's nails drive me crazy with how long and ugly they are, even after trimming, and I'd like to start dremeling them to see if that helps. I have no idea about what models are good, so can anyone suggest one to me? Thanks!

I have this dremel with a flex shaft. I love it.

Used to have a battery powered one and couldn't stand replacing batteries, charging it, having it die, the time involved. This one trims a nail down in about 2 seconds flat.

I just picked up this one. I wanted a cordless that had enough power to use for other things, not just dog nails

I have no idea about "best", but I picked up an 8100 cordless a couple of weeks ago, and it has worked perfectly for Gusto. I had people tell me the cordless wouldn't last long enough, but I got all four feet done 3 times (trying to get his nails shorter, so I'm doing them every other day) and it was still running fine when I recharged after that.

And I have to say, getting it was a fabulous decision. I could not get Gusto's nails shorter with clippers, and he was starting to hate me for trying. In 2 weeks, his nails look better than they have in years. He likes the Dremel SO much better than clippers.

I've got this one. http://www.amazon.com/Dremel-7700-1-...eywords=dremel

I use it every 4-5 days and normally keeps battery for about 2.5 weeks. I like it a lot! Does a great job and it was relatively inexpensive.

I live this one because it's quiet, light weight, and you don't have to worry about losing your charge (it plugs in). The design makes it easier to hold than most I've used, and it's purple, which makes it a win for me LOL.
