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?

I would imagine that a chi pup is about the same size as a yorkie pup.In that case,first you have to keep her as still as possible so that you dont accidently cut too much off ;) I wrap my pups up in a towel so that they cant move,and just leave the paw I´m going to work on out.That way she wont flail around.It´s really fast that way.
Just cut the very tips off so that they dont feel like kitten claws and she´ll be fine :) As kafkabeetle said,if her nails are white,it´s even easier.The pink shadow inside the nail is your guide - dont reach it ;)
