Introduce the toothbrush next. Put a small amount of toothpaste onto the toothbrush and allow your dog to lick it off. Same as before, reward and praise your dog with a couple treats.
Once your dog is used to the TTouch mouth massage, toothpaste, and toothbrush you can move on to brushing.
Clean your dog’s teeth in small, circular motions. Gently lift their lip and clean the outside of their teeth and gumline. Talk to your pet throughout the brushing. Clean their teeth in short intervals. Stop every 5-10 seconds and give them positive reinforcement like conscious TTouches on their body and cheerful talking.
Remember to keep the cleaning quick and fun. 😊
