Brushing Your Dog’s Teeth Can Be Fun!

Is your doggo rushing to hide when it’s time to brush his teeth? For many dogs, tooth brushing can be scary. But there are things that you can do to help make it fun and exciting for him. Here are some of them: 

Note: If your dog totally refuses to have a toothbrush near his not-so-pearly whites, try getting him accustomed to having his teeth touched first. We suggest using your finger to coat his teeth with the dog toothpaste and letting your dog lick it off like a snack. It takes a lot of patience (and toothpaste!), but your pet will gradually feel comfortable enough to graduate to a pet toothbrush. 

Get his favorite toy ready

Who said tooth brushing has to be a boring task? Bring in his favorite toys and turn the chore into a fun bonding time with you. Reward him with his toy each time he lets you brush his teeth. 

Pick a yummy dog toothpaste

Yes, dog toothpaste is a thing and it comes in many different flavors that dogs like. There are fun and interesting flavors like bacon, beef, and chicken liver. So go ahead and grab a flavor that your dog loves so much that he’ll let you touch his canines any time, any day.
