    Twice daily walks on cement sidewalks does the same thing. The cement is rough, and wears the nails. Or, borrow Wally’s belt sander.

    That’s three votes: Holly, Biscuit & Alix. Will the grandmother make four?

    I’m for the twice daily walks on cement; sounds good to
    me. :-) But whatever’s good for the dog.

    what if you live as I do, where there are no sidewalks nor cement to walk the dog on? Just tar roads and rain ditches for gutters. I vote groomer…

    My dad once asked me for suggestions on doing something tricky. My advice? “pay the professionals” Sometimes it just makes more sense.

    I actually know a breeder that uses a Dremel.

    Oh yeah. That’s probably why the dog behaves when I trim his nails. He remembers the few times he was brought to petsmart to have it done! :P

    I lived next door to a family with three Saint Bernards. Clipping nails was a family event. The teenage son sat on one, the younger kid held onto the muzzle, Mom held the paw in an iron grip, and Dad wielded the clippers…..

    I small high speed multitool used for grinding and drilling small pieces of wood or metal. A little bit bigger around than an electric toothbrush but at least four times as fast.

    Before dogs were ornamental housepets, they would spend their days outside where they could run and dig. Dirt, especially sandy dirt, is abrasive and would serve to file down the nails.

    Some parrots need to have their nails clipped, or the nails will curl around and dig into the “palms” of their feet.
