when to cut puppies nails?

Why do dogs do what they do? Howling, licking, sniffing, etc. etc. What is the weird thing your dog just did? How do you get a dog to do this and that? How do you stop a dog from doing that and this? Post here stuff you can't fit anywhere else in the "Puppy & Dog Training Obedience - Behavior" Category.

My puppy is a little over 2 months and her nails are getting quite sharp. When is a good time to cut them? would it be okay to do it now?

Go for it, there really isn’t an age when its too young, however, the first couple of times you cut your dog nails you have to be extra careful, since this is something she will always remember when she cuts her nails in the future; a bleeding nail that is cut too short will stay with her for a long time and can give you serious problems in the future.
You can do it yourself, again do so carefully, we suggest that you have someone help you control the dog, since its hard enough trying to cut your dogs nail without having to worry of holding him down, preferably a family member or friend that your dog will feel comfortable around.

hi, you should hold your puppies feet, seperate the toes on the back and front paws often. this helps desensitize her to the touch of her feet. she will be easier to hold and cut the nails after. she will trust you more and know she won't be hurt. this also helps with checking her feet for wounds and such. i hope i helped

You should do it right now. But some pups will make a quite sharp noise while doing it. So this is what you can do.
When your pup is asleep, deep sleep, cut the nails and your pup won't even notice.
