I have two female pugs, my 4 year old is pretty good about letting me cut her nails but her 5 year old sister is a nightmare.  After 5 years of struggling to cut her nails on a biweekly to bimonthly basis depending upon how interested I was in being scratched to pieces I decided to look at alternatives to regular old dog clippers.  I read many forums about Pedipaw and Pedicure and everyone said Dremel was the best.  Well, I received my Model 761 Pet Nail Grooming Tool in the mail today and let me tell you....it is a MIRACLE!!!  I didn't expect it to work but for the price I figured I would try it out and at most I could use it on my 4 year old.  To my surprise I pulled it out, picked up my difficult pug, and cut her nails quickly, quietly, and painlessly (her emotional and my physical pain) in a matter of minutes.  It was amazing.  It filed both of my pugs nails perfectly.  The speed and the pressure were perfect. And even though I slipped once and got my finger I didn't feel a thing.  I highly recommend this product and intend to tell all my friends about it .  I know I've only had it a day but I couldn't be happier.

I have recently seen a tool advertized on TV that was a rotary type device.  I wondered then if Dremel had something similar.  I have both the Dremel 400 RX and the Dremel 395 Multi Pro.  Is this dog nail trimmer an attachment I can put on one of these tools?  Or is it an entirely different tool altogether?

Hi Docster, I'm posting a link that takes you to Amazon's reference to the mentioned tool:

http://www.amazon.com/Dremel-761-03-Cordless-Grooming-Rotary/dp/B0000C6DZ2

After looking at it, you may conclude that you can use the 395 at a low speed  --less than 12000 rpm-- which I guess answers your final question. The sanding attachment 430 should be fine as shown in the picture of the Amazon link.

Hey Joe,

You can't do a pet's nails, or your own, for that matter, with a corded tool. The lowest speed just isn't low enough. I wanted one for my own nails, and my multi-pro would not do. You have to get down below 5000rpm. One day, I saw a manicurist using the cordless Dremel 10.8V. She let me check it out, and it was perfect. Didn't want to spring for another tool, but glad I did. I actually use the cordless tool all the time now.....and I don't work for Dremel.

I recently bought the pet nail dremel and would love any suggestions.  I have 2 standard size rat terriers and can't dremel more than 1-2 nails at a time, and not as smooth and short as I'd like.  Which speed is best? How do you hold the dogs? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Are the sanders that come with the dremel the best size, grain, etc, or would another size be more efficient.  Which speed do you do your dog's nails on?  Thanks!

I have the multipro and would say between 5000 and 7500 rpms. Just remember the faster you use it, the hotter it gets.  You don't want to spend but a few (3) seconds  on each nail, do all four paws and then start all over if they need more work.  I use 120 grit, 1/2" bands but for your smaller dogs 1/4" might be better.

My dogs are larger so I don't hold them, just support the nail and paw with one hand as you are grinding, it will cut down on the vibration a little bit and help them relax.  If you dogs aren't comfortable don't do too much at one time.  Give them lots of treats and appreciation and they will soon beg for their pedicures.

Joe - between 5000 and 7500 is good, you don't want to use it much faster, because it will get hot and you wouldn't want to hurt your dog.  If you have a puppy or small dog, try the 1/4" bands, if your dog is larger like mine you might want to go with the 120 grit 1/2" bands.
