My Dremel has never gotten hot enough...or at least the attachement I use has not gotten hot enough to burn.

Yes the peticure works great for my dashies. I was sceptical but with a few sessions with their absolute favorite treat they chilled out. I have written about this in "trimming your dogs nails." It has been a big relief to have their nails looking good. Good luck!

I used the dremel on my last dog, I got it from Target. She was better with the dremel than the clippers. My new dog has thicker nails though and I haven't tried it yet (hope it works)

My two are good size Goldens and the Dremel works great. May have to "file" a little longer, but have had no problems with it.

Update:

Bought the Dremel this weekend, but the brindle prince is still afraid. We'll keep trying it, and hopefully (eventually) he'll calm down. In the meantime, I really think I'll have to get the Rescue Remedy or a mild sedative from the vet. He hasn't been to the vet since his shots last year, I'm sure it's going to be a real pleasure getting him to go this year! He just seems to freak out when he goes somewhere and smells the other animals!

I really wish we lived in an area were we could (attempt) to walk him on pavement. Unfortunately, we don't have sidewalks or paved roads up here.

Sit on the floor with him, petting him and get him comfy. Run the Dremel but away from him. As he gets more comfortable with the sound, bring it closer and closer. Eventually, he will come around.
Of course, your other option is to have the vet clip his nails. Probably about $2 a paw.

Which I wouldn't actually mind at this point. I'll just need someone big & strong help DH get this 90 lb. boob into the building - my husband tried to pick him up when we went to Petco last week, but Levi was on to him, he wouldn't let him get behind him! He's definitely smarter than we think!

One of mine was terrified of it..and within a week, he was letting me do all nails. Just takes patience.
The Rescue Remedy may be a good idea too...

Exactly!!! I use a Dremel all the time, I am a groomer. Everyone is Returning the PetiCure and everyone comes in to ask for it first.
Anyway, it does just take some time.

I use Rescue Remedy for my kitties, Works Well!
