Looking to find the best nail clippers for my GSD. I have bought several pairs here and there but they are all crap. All links and recommendations are great appreciated.

Ditto on the Dremel!
There is a web site that gives great pics and descriptions on using the Dremel on nails.
Something like Doberdawn.com
Anyone here know what I'm talking about?

A Dremel tool. $20 at Wal-Mart for the lowest speed rechargeable battery sort.
ok, NOW i'm going to have to go to my favorite pawn shop and see how low they'll go.....:)

i do have a favorite pair of clippers though; i've had them nearly 20 years, never even tried to have them sharpened, and i can literally shave nails so thinly that you can see thru the shavings. and all it says on the clippers is "767 stainless millers forge italy", so i can't even help much on that!

but i always thought the Dremel method looked good--just never got around to buying a Dremel (ie, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality).

Dogs seem to fight the dremel much less then a clippers. I'vs always felt the clippers caused more pressure on the nail then a grinder. Just be careful with a long haired dog and the dremel. If that's the case, slip the foot into an old piece of panty hose. The nails will poke through and the hair will be held back.

Double check that website that was posted but you want it on a lower speed than most Dremels have, otherwise it gets too hot for them. I don't usually keep it on the nail longer than 3-5 seconds.

I have read your writings and I have read articles on this topic in several articles from other sources. I got a lot of information from your writing, is there any other suggestions you can convey regarding the theme of your writing? so that I can get more and more complete information.

I certainly thank you for writing this article well, hopefully it will become a reference in journals or other scientific writings and can help many people. thanks.
