I got yet another new power tool Friday but I didn’t even have a chance to crack it open until Sunday night. How did I last that long?! This one, though, isn’t house-related, but pet-related.
It’s a Dremel 761-03 7,000/14,000 RPM Cordless Pet Nail Grooming Rotary Tool. I got it from Amazon.com for under $23. And since I ordered it at the same time I bought my new hammer, shipping was free.
I had ordered a Peticure months ago but kept getting told it was back-ordered so I finally canceled that order and got this instead about two weeks ago. I read several reviews on it, almost every one of them positive. The only complaint I saw more than once was about batteries, that they didn't seem to last very long. I stuck my spare set of rechargeables for the digital camera. (Which reminds me: I need another set now!) The trimmer requires 4-AAs.
I thought initially that Ozzie might be afraid of it while it was running. I turned it on and set it on the floor by him. Instead, he wanted to play with it! Silly boy. So once I got down to actually trimming his nails (which are super-long right now), the biggest fight was trying to keep him from sniffing it. (The last thing I need is to have to rush a noseless dog to the vet.)
It seems to work pretty well. I’m still kind of paranoid using it, and he is still hyper-interested in it, so between the two, I think it’s going to take several more times of using it to see just how well it does. I’ll keep you posted.
