I use scissors to cut the hair on Tyler's paws, but I know that clippers are another option. With scissors, you have to be careful not to cut or nick the pads on their feet. I do it every two weeks when I clip his nails. One reason the hair should be clipped is to give them better traction, especially on wooden pine floors like we have. I would assume that it would also be uncomfortable for them if it the hair wasn't trimmed. Good luck with a wiggly puppy.
