You hear all the time about how important your oral hygiene is. But what about Fido's? Your furry companion needs to practice good oral habits, too. A lack of opposable thumbs can make this hard, so having their human counterparts help them out is essential. Some dogs may hate having their teeth brushed, and others may love it. So, find the method that works best for both of you guys and get to brushing your dog's teeth. Brushing Your Dog's Teeth

The Finger Toothbrush

As long as your pup doesn't mistake your finger for a chew toy, you'll have the most control with this version.

The Doggie Toothbrush

They're double sided, one side with a small head and bristles, and the other one bigger for larger canine companions. These are great for brushing, although if your dog is a chewer, they may be more interested in biting the toothbrush than brushing with it.  

Brushing Dog Chews

There are a variety of dog chews out there that can help your pup remove plaque while enjoying a tasty treat. Dogs who are active chewers may not need any incentive to chow down on a tasty bone. Other pups may be a bit more finicky. If so, check out the Le Marcel Dog Bakery in San Francisco for a special pup treat!
