    My first Frenchie let me hold her like a baby when I clipped her nails.

    Leo sits in my lap like a little baby while daddy takes the dremel to him. So far so good, daddy is very good and hasn't gotten any quicks. We file them down oneself a week in hopes to get them a tiny bit shorter each time.

    I bought a dremel and we did it once so far. Ollie is not thrilled with it, but he seems better about it then the clippers and it's easier for me not to hit the quick. I like it much better. Thanks for all the advice!

    I've been using the tips and techniques at the below site, but am still having troubles. I have nail clippers and a dremel; however once Q is held and the tools go anywhere near her, she turns in to a maniac, flailing around and gouging anything she can get with her razor sharp uncut nails. I can put pressure on her feet, play with the nails, etc. and not even phase her though. In the past 2 months, I had the vet's office trim her nails once and another time I was able to trim at least half of her nails over a few days. I figured I'm not getting anywhere on my own, so I'll let a professional handle her and hopefully after a few visits, she may become more calm and I'll be able to shorten them at home.

    I called a few groomers near my house and was quoted $10-15 for trimming and $3-7 to clean her ears as well. I luckily found a nice lady, really close to home and she will trim for $7 and dremel for $10 and will ear clean for free. I decided to bring Quella today on my lunch break. They have 4 groomers onsite, one of which was the owner and the place was very clean with 4-6 dogs getting groomed or caged awaiting their owners. For $23, I may even drop Q off for a few hours and get groomed, dremeled, etc. I liked that the dogs aren't caged in a back room and all of the cages were in the main grooming area to watch the action until their parents pick them up. Unfortunately I wasn't able to hold Q while the lady dremeled, because she was flailing around so a guy groomer assisted in restraining Q while she had her nails shortened. They are SUPER short and look/feel amazing! Now she won't be able to snag the customers at Petsmart dresses (I did warn that she was a jumper and had super long nails, but she continued to squat down to wrestle Q).

    Hudson sits like this to have his filed. I also have a neighbor (who also has a Frenchie with the tough black nails!) who will occasionally cut them. He couldn't care less either way.
