Will this work for you? We want to hear from you - tell us what you think below!

Brushing a dog’s teeth is no easy task. If your dog is anything like our little guy, Django, he or she absolutely hates getting teeth cleaned and squirms violently away from the toothbrush. Sound familiar?

We discovered an amazing trick... a way to brush your dog's teeth without the violent squirming and discomfort. It's easy. It's effective. AND it will help you fight off tooth decay, gum disease and thousands of dollars in doggy dental bills.

What You Need

What To Do

  • Step 1 Have your pup sit with you and let him or her see, sniff and lick the toothbrush
  • Step 2 Bring out the high quality treat and let your pup bite down on it. It may take a few seconds. Make sure he won't let go.
  • Step 3 Once your pup puts a death grip on the treat, start brushing! Gently massage your pup’s teeth and gums, making sure to get to the back teeth. In most circumstances, your pup will be most focused on holding the treat (and won't mind a finger or toothbrush in his mouth)
  • Step 4 Even if you can only brush for 10 seconds, congratulations! You’ve already made progress in fighting off future dental problems. Praise your dog with love so he or she starts associating teeth cleaning with positivity.
  • Step 5 Repeat as often as possible and no less than once a week. In no time your dog will get used to the toothbrush and start letting you brush his or her teeth without a treat
  • Step 6 Comment below! Do you have other great ideas for teeth cleaning? Did this trick work for you and your dog? Let us know what you think, we want to hear from you!
