Does your dog go ballistic when you whip out those nail clippers?
You can’t really blame your pup – a few bad experiences getting your nail cut to the quick (your dog’s nail cuticle) and bleeding would probably make you squirmy too!
The good news is that there is an alternative to dog nail clippers – specifically, nail grinders! Today we’ll be detailing the best dog nail grinders, as well as reviewing how to dremel dog nails safely.
Dog nail grinders are grooming tools that serve as an alternative nail-cutting solution for dogs that aren’t big fans of clippers.
Nail grinders are also known as “dremels,” referring to the name brand of Dremel, a popular and well-known grinding tool.
Rather than cutting the nail, a canine nail grinder will grind away at the nail with a high-speed, rounded grinder that uses a material similar to sandpaper.
There are a number of advantages and disadvantages of using a nail grinder as opposed to a nail cutter. We’ll cover some of the big ones here!

Disadvantages of Nail Grinders:
Before you get grinding, get the low down on how to grind your dog’s nails efficiently and effectively.
Introduce your dog to the grinder in small increments (and with plenty of treats and praise at every step).
First, show your dog the grinder and give a reward (like some stinky, yummy treats). Place rewards near the grinder (when it’s off) to get the dog sniffing and close to the grinder.
Next, hold the grinder in your hand and quickly turn it on and off, followed by rewards. You’re getting your dog used to the sound of the grinder, which can be a bit scary for them at first.
Next, turn grinder on for a longer period and reward. Finally, turn the grinder on and tap your dog’s nail (just for a moment) and praise.
This whole process won’t be done in one day – in fact, it may take a few weeks to get your dog acclimated. Go slowly and take your time. The payoff will be worth it when you can grind down your dog’s nails without stress!
