Mean? I can't imagine how that was mean. Please continue to offer your advice! Although I do like fluffy doggy newsy stuff too!

Ruben screams even when the vet or the groomer clips his nails, so I wonder if some dogs are just more sensitive? He goes to the groomer regularly and is fine about the rest of the grooming. Every dog is different, right? Just like people.

Thank you, everyone, for your helpful responses! I'm still feeling pretty apprehensive about trying the Dremel, especially after reading about someone's experience of their dog's beard getting stuck in it-- I didn't think of that, yikes! I'm continuing to trim with with nail clippers, but I'm going to take EvaE1izabeth's advice and ask a groomer to show me how to use the Dremel safely. I never thought to do it while my pup was wet, which makes a whole lot of sense for a number of reasons. I love dremelled nails and really want to learn-- I was chicken, too, with my last two dogs, and am determined to learn now with this new puppy who is already socialized to the Dremel.

To be fair, I’m seconding Karen’s advice When I first joined the forum she mentioned being shown a few things by a groomer and it hadn’t even occurred to me to ask. Since I don’t know any groomers personally and haven’t found one groomer we’ve stuck with, I didn’t know if a groomer would find it rude. A few might feel that way, but I don’t think most view it as a threat to their business or as devaluing their skills if someone asks for advice on how to hold a puppy for grooming or for suggestions on how to use a certain tool, that kind of thing. I have found that most good groomers appreciate any effort to maintain the dog between appointments.
