Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Groomer No cord, Not too noisy, battery time fine
I have used another Dremel model previously and needed a replacement when it stopped working for an unknown reason. I wanted a cordless model this time, and I love that. I can use it anywhere outside so I don't have nail dust all over the house, or at least away from an outlet without the cord getting in the way. I ONLY use it on a LOW setting so it does not hurt the nail with high heat, and I have to be very careful not to get the long hair on one dog's foreleg from catching in the rotation when I do his dewclaws. That actually happened once, but it just rolled up and stopped. I turned it off and got the hair off without issue, but I have a mannerly dog which allowed the handling required. It didn't seem to hurt him, but it could potentially cause a pull and startle and larger reaction in some dogs, so be careful with dogs with long hair. Some people use a sock with a hole on the end to let the paw through but cover the long hair. The only thing I didn't like about it was that if you need to remove the batteries from the pack after clicking it into place, it is very hard to remove. The whole pack itself removes from the tool easily enough. I have done the nails on two dogs twice without needing to recharge, and am currently trying to see how long I can go without recharging, but I am satisfied with the charge time already because I could use it on several dogs between charges, and that's all I need. It was also not too loud or scary sounding for my dogs, but they have some experience with the grinder concept. It isn't any louder than using clippers to trim hair, and the motor itself is probably much quieter than many groomer's hair clippers are. If your dogs can handle that, they can certainly handle this. For anyone new to doing this, as a trainer and pro-trained groomer, I recommend this wordy, but helpful page: http://www.doberdawn.com/doberdawn/dremel.html

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rob Perfect Tool for the job
Way better than hail clippers. It took at least 2 people to cut our dog's nails before using this tool.
Having black nails made the job even harder. I can trim her nails now, by myself with some treats of course. She is 60 lbs and has thick black nails, this tool on low speed trims them fast.

Why didn't I buy it sooner? It made my life easier a great deal. What was a nightmare for me and my dogs became a 5 minute procedure. Absolutely recommend!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jpspectra Nice Pet Nail Grinder for the price
The two speed switch can be a little sensitive at times, can accidently be left running when turned to off.
The unit is relatively quite, but could be better. The NiCad batteries are OK, but Lithiums would be a big improvement, but not at this price point. The NiCads the unit comes with don't really hold their charge for much more than a week of off and on use.
The Grinder itself works great so long as I can get our now 13 week old Welsh Springer Spaniel to sit still long enough. We can usually get one or two nails ground down lightly per treat. She still hasn't quite gotten used to the sound of the grinder running. I've only used this on her with the slow speed of 600 rpm which is adequate, but the motor is low on torque at this speed.
I wish Dremel would make a better model of this unit for pets with a brushless motor and Lithium batteries.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike42 Just what my dog needed...
I bought this because my dog was traumatized by a groomer cutting her to the quick with nail clippers and she was frightened of me repeating that mistake. I trim her nails now with the Dremel and she's still a little apprehensive but calmer the second time. The trimmer works very well and feels well-built. Its quiet and even at low speed trims her nails quickly. I'm sure to be using this for a very long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JReichart Great nail trimmer for dogs!
I knew from previous experience with other Dremel products that this would be a dependable, easy to use tool, but was uncertain how my dog would take to having it used on her nails. The first time around was easy peasy! She was use to my clipping her nails and handling her feet to begin with, but I was still surprised. Actually, using the Dremel trimmer seems way less stressful for her and gets the job done quickly and efficiently. I love it!
