|i dont mean to discourage you, but desensitizing your dog to feet being touched should be done when they are as young as possible, for this exact reason. you can probably still work her out if it, but now you have to do it to a 100 lb dog instead of a little puppy.
here is what i would do . dont waste money on a dremel yet. if she is yanking her feet out like you say, the dremel will not work. call every groomer/vet in town and tell them the situation. i would leave the sedation for the last possible option. however, i have to ask how long it has been since the dog's nails were clipped? the longer you let nails grow, the longer the quik grows, making the amount you can clip off lessen greatly. so depending on how long the quik is, you may need to sedate her and cut them all back.
what all this is leading up to is this. the easiest way to keep a dog's nails short: WALKING THEM. if your dog is over 30 pounds, then walking them every day on concrete will keep the nails filed themselves.
