It’s a common myth that dog’s mouths are cleaner than humans. In reality, dogs and humans mouths are both pretty dirty, but cases of transmitted diseases are incredibly rare. However, just like humans, dogs need to have their teeth brushed. Although it may be daunting to think of getting your dog to sit still while you scrub their choppers, it’s a process that, just like any other, dogs can be trained to enjoy … or at least tolerate. Before you get started, visit your local pet store and pick up some dog toothpaste – Crest doesn’t cut it for our furry friends. As you brush, speak to your dog in soothing tones, and don’t be stingy with treats and cuddles afterwards. In fact, jump in bed and give them an extra snuggle, like this bulldog and his owner. Before long, teeth brushing time will be a breeze.
