Hello There im a new owner of a miniature Schnauzer puppy. Shiloh is 3 months old and ive had her since she was 8 weeks old. Im wondering when to cut her nails. They dont look to long to me but i wouldnt know as Shiloh is the first dog ive ever owned. Any help would be greatly appreciated

My mom started playing with my nails and then just snipping the very ends off when she first got me. That way I got used to it and now I am a good boy when it is time for the weekly nail trimming.
