trimming the nails of tiny puppy.

Fiance thinks I'm weird bc I'm petrified of trimming Belle's nails. She is our new 8 week old chi mix pup. I have trimmed billions of nails lol but these are the tiniest I've ever seen. They need to be trimmed badly though. They are like kitten claws that never retract.. what's the easiest way for me to do this?

We actually didn't really trim Cali's nails until she was about 5 months old (there wasn't really a need to), and she was maybe 2.5lbs at the time.. maybe 3. We just use normal dog nail clippers and it works fine... however, I'm really cautious about the quick so I trim very little off. You could also invest in a dremel.
