I was wondering when you all started clipping your puppies nails? Jake is about 12 weeks now and his nails have grown a bit since i brought him home. I dont want them to get too long lol. I also dont want to scare him by clipping them. He hates baths and brushing and all that stuff enough already.

You could try what we do.

We have a table that we don't use for eating, but if you only have one for eating you can throw a blanket over it.

Get a Kong or anything that you can fill with peanut butter. Freeze it overnight. (Lasts longer)

Then, while your pup (or dog) is sitting on the table, have one person hold the Kong level with his head... he SHOULD be very interested in licking it clean, hopefully giving the other person ample opportunity to trim his nails/brush him/trim his paw fur. It works for us. =D

Good luck!!
