I've spent the last week "preparing" Casey for her first Dremel session. I took it out and turned it on for a few days, then I spent some time Dremeling my own nails, let her near it to sniff and investigate, but today, she actually had to lay down and have the tool vibrate on her body.

She was not a happy camper, lol. She tried to get up twice, but I just gently pushed her back down and gave a firm "no." After that, as always, she resigned herself to her fate. Of course, she got a bunch of treats and praise, and all she had to do was lay still for 10 seconds.

What a tough life for a puppy dog :)

ok.... I'm definitely a bit envious of your patience. Beth (mom of Jack and Maddie) wrote a great post about getting Jack used to the dremel. And I confess..... I think I haven't tried this with Soffie and Griffyn because I lack the patience!!! Good for YOU Carla!! My hat is off to you!! : )

Torri was fine with the Pedi-Paws, in part knowing there was a treat coming at the end of the procedure. I've gone easy introducing her to the Dremel. She's less than thrilled having her nails done with it, but each session gets a little less stressful (for each of us, lol).

When I first used the Dremel on Olive you would have thought that I was ripping her nails off one by one with pliers! The drama of it all. Now she lays in my lap and sometimes even dozes off. Keep up the good work!
