I have a small Chihuahua and he would always come and sit with me. He would let me pick him when I would take me outside to do his business. since I trim his nails he has drawn away from me. He wont let me pick him up without yapping, and wanting me to put him down. Is this normal behavior, or lost of trust.

I have a small Chihuahua and he always comes when I ask him to come.He also would let me pick him up when I would take him out to go to the bathroom. since I clip his toenails he has withdrawn from me and when I try to pick him up he starts fighting with me to put him down. He also yapps when I try to pick me up too. Is this his way of showing that he doesn't trust me anymore?
