I am not a professional groomer, but I do groom Lilly. The best advice I can give is to go slow and don't be afraid to cut too much off - it grows back! I actually have had better success when I have cut more off than when I just trim little by little. The more you do it, the easier it becomes. Hopefully, Django is a patient dog. If you can lay him on his side and do one side of feet and then flip him over and do the other side, it is much easier. My dogs actually go to sleep when I am trimming their feet (the hair, not the toenails, that's a different story!). I assume you have a snub nose scissors for this? That way you don't have to worry if they jerk their feet away. Hope that helps a little bit. Good luck!
