I have an 11 week old standard with black nails, I've heard about nail grinders, what have you all tried? What worked and didn't work for you? What options should I look for in a grinder?

I'm getting a cord dremel and a shop vac for Christmas ((I picked them out)) and I'm pretty sure a pair of clippers...my mom won't tell me one way or another on those haha

is it difficult to use the dremel?

The hardest part is probably getting your dog used to the sound/vibration. I have not used a nail trimmer on my dogs in almost 20 years - only a dremmel. I started Vinnie out with Brian holding him (legs hanging) and giving a piece of cheese for each nail (this lasted for a few months - I do nails weekly) and then advanced to cheese for each foot, then just having him sit on the grooming table and I still treat for each foot.

"Dremel"- buy it at walmart its the cheapest. We use it on all our dogs. Petsmart wanted over twice the proce for the same thing.
