    How to Brush Your Dog's Teeth - A Simple Yet Powerful Trick (Video)

    How to Brush Your Dog's Teeth If They Hate It (Video)

    September 22, 2017 3 Comments

    After learning that dachshunds are especially prone to dental problems down the road, Mike and I (Steph) realized we needed to start cleaning our long-haired sausage dog Django's teeth regularly. Like most dogs, Django refused to let us go anywhere his mouth with a dog-friendly finger brush. Django would shake his head and squirm violently away from the toothbrush whenever our hands got near his mouth. Sound familiar?

    Well one day I accidentally discovered an amazing trick. I stumbled upon a way to brush Django's teeth without the violent squirming and discomfort. I shared my idea with our vet who excitedly replied "You need to make a YouTube video and share this with the world!!!". So I did.

    If you are struggling to brush your dog's teeth because they don't like it, this video is for you. Here is a simple and very effective way to brush your dog's teeth and help you fight off tooth decay, gum disease and thousands of dollars in doggy dental bills in the future.
