Now, place toothpaste on your finger or a finger brush. Gently rub the teeth in a circular motion with your finger. Repeat this for another 5-7 days or as many sessions it takes your dog to feel comfortable with this procedure. Remember to praise him and keep an upbeat attitude.
After your dog is used to having the flavored toothpaste in his mouth, you are ready to start with a toothbrush. You need to get your dog used to the consistency of the bristles on a brush. So, let your dog lick something tasty (the pet toothpaste you have been using or beef bouillon) off of the brush so he gets used to the texture. Let your dog do this for 5-7 days. Praise your dog.
