I just have some scissor-type nail trimmers, and I think sometimes they pinch my dog a bit because she sometimes screams even when though I didn't hit the quick. She is a bit of a wuss though, she hates having her feet touched. She does stand well for it though as she is well trained. I'm just wondering if there's some new nail trimming tool out there that works better? What about those grinder type ones?

How about shedding tools? I've seen quite a few that supposedly decrease shedding...do they really work any better than an ordinary brush? I just use a round tipped human brush for my dog. She sheds like no other though! The hair coming off this dog is amazing! 365 days a year too! Her shedding doesn't seem to change with a brand of food either. Keep in mind this is a short-haired dog.

So, should I go buy some Best dog nail grinder and shedding tools, or is it really all just the same?

Some dogs are just more sensitive than others. You should probably try a Dremel. A Dremel basically just sands down the nail. You still have to be careful of the quick though. If you are new to a Dremel, you should probably have some Kwik Stop on hand, just in case you nick the quick.

What I would do is establish a schedule if you don't already have one. Like spend an hour or two hours a day at say 8 in the evening every single day. I would get a Unigroom. A Unigroom is a rubber brush made for getting the dead hair out. Since she is a short hair dog, I would use a rubber brush (any kind works), and then comb her out. I work part time as a groomer, so hope this helps! :)
