Your dogs teeth should be cleaned regularly for optimum health. No two dogs are the same so you will need to clean as often as needed. We do our own dogs every week.
The best brush to use is double-headed with the brushes at a 45 degree angle to clean below the gumline
Not all dogs are a fan of teeth brushing, tho with regular practice you can make the experience more pleasant for you both.
Tips to make brushing your dogs teeth easier
. Brush after exercise. Your dog will be more tiered and more likely to sit still.
.Don't over do it. Start slowly with a few teeth and build it up slowly each time. don't worry if you don't brush the whole mouth the fist time there is always next time.
. Increase the time every day as he gets used to it.
.speak soothingly and pleasantly in a firm calming voice. Reward your dog with a treat afterwards. Soon your dog should start looking forward to the event.
Your dogs gums are an important part of their dental health. Don't forget to make sure they are healthy too.
