I am trying to shorten her nails with a dremel. She goes crazy trying to escape. Will she adjust or will she always stay scared of the dremel. Would it be better to use a nail clipper? Posted by KOPsarah Oct 8, 2009hi lindal, and thanks for your post, I was just wondering if your dog is usually ok with having her nails done with the clippers or even with having her feet handled in general?
