I thought really getting the nail short would help me keep on top of it. Max broke a dewclaw and the vet clipped it short for me. I couldn't keep it any shorter as it was too sensitive. The quick didn't recede at all.

I use the dremel as well. You can sand on the outer sides and leave the sensitive quick area alone and the nail will be short enough. Go to this site, on the left hand side of the page is the most excellent doberdawn dremel page. Even if you don't want to dremel you will get good information on how a dog's nail grows and how to trim it without hurting the dog. Even with clippers you can condition the dog to better accept them and there are ways to trim nails with a clipper to get more nail off.
