Default Cutting Nails

So, my boy is about 17 weeks and I have been handling his paws on a daily basis since we got him at 9 weeks. I have made it a point to cut his nails weekly. I only take 1-2mm off each time to ensure I don't cause pain or bleeding. Lately he has been very vocal and protective of his paws. I still handle them, but he gives me some lip and mouths my hands.

Cutting his nails has always been a 2 person job. One distracts with toys/treats, the other cuts. It seems like he is putting up more of a fight now.

How do I get through this so that I don't have a 90 pound dog that hates getting his nails cut?
