I bought a tube of peanut flavored tooth paste for dogs at Pet Smart and Kody loves it. I started by letting him lick it off the brush a couple of times, then started in on the brushing. He will sit still long enough for me to get all of his teeth now. I try to do it weekly but don't always get to.
My friend brushes her dogs teeth and I think its wierd.. no offense to those of you that do.. I give Breed those iams danta bone things and her teeth are fine.. Vet says doesnt hurt to brush dogs teeth and it doesnt hurt not to.
Buddy chews Nylabones and I stuff Kongs, etc. He's 9 and I really don't want to have to get him put out for a cleaning if I don't have to. Lord knows this dog has had more anesthesia than most humans I know all put together!!
I use a mint flavored dog toothpaste and he seems to love it.
I do, but not on a schedule. He likes to chew on his Nylabone which helps. I mainly brush his teeth b/c I think it's kinda funny! I can say to Jersey "brush brush brush brush?" really fast and he gets all excited. Then he just kind of gnaws on the toothbrush. It's more of a fun activity for us than it is for clean teeth!
