Renee, if Kharma is anything like Max, it would take more than 4 hands to hold him down to cut his nails.

Barb . . . I wouldn't ask anyone else to help hold her, lol! That could get very, errr . . . well, it could turn into an interesting experience. Life altering.

Renee, if she's walking away then the dremel's too close. The entire point is to very slowly desensitize her to the dremel first while it's off. Some dogs will of course shut down or 'exit' (gotta love her confidence), if it's too close. In the middle of her eating her meals for example, try quietly setting it somewhere far enough away where she sees it but doesn't react.

Holding a dog down for any required handling only makes future handling worse. The long process of desensitizing can be painfully slow but for say one month of crazy patience, you get several years of stress free handling.

Hell, if we can get the lions to do it.......

I have it easy, I work in a dental laboratory so I just use my hand piece(much, much quieter than a dremel). I have oodles of fancy burrs and grinders that work quite well I would send you some old ones, but kharma doesn't like the dremel so it would be kinda pointless.

Something tells me the lions are downright tractable compared to this bitch, lol!

The trick is going to be finding the reasoning that she'll buy. Sometimes . . . . . . well, what can I say? She IS my dog. I've often said that Bimmer is who I would be if I were a much better person, but Kharma is who I am.

Maybe the two of you need to sit down with a couple of beers and discuss this...

Now there's a thought!

By the way, Cleo likes red wine -- the cheap stuff
