Q: when is it old enough to trim a pups nails?
my pup is about 6 1/2 weeks old and his nails are really sharp. is he old enough for me to trim his nails? some one told me to file them, would that be better? does it matter?

My breeder started my little guy when he was a week old (obviously barely taking anything off), but she finds that if you leave them long it cuts up the mom's belly. He is now done every week, and he doesn't mind it. The sooner you start the better. and don't just start with. My friend started her's with the front only, and they're fine, but now she has a fight to do the back.
Just be careful, and handle the feet a lot when you start, that way your pup isn't scared of being restrained.
