I got a puppy a couple months ago. He's almost 4 months old, how big should he be?

How often should I trim his claws? I've been doing it pretty regularly but today he wiggled and I drew blood :(

Here is a pick of him at 2 1/2 months

It can vary widely from pup to pup. The "average" for a 4 month old pup is about 42 lbs. for a male. My boy weighed about 40 lbs. at 4 months. He's now a little over 7 months and about 70 lbs.

As far as nail trimming, I'm not sure. I keep my boy's short enough that they don't touch the ground when standing. We do most of our walking on pavement so they stay pretty well "self trimmed." I do give them a small trim from time to time just so he stays used to it. Our 12 year old senior hates having his nails trimmed because we never did it as he was growing up. We aren't making that same mistake again. :)
