Taking care of your dog’s grooming needs can be a bit of a chore. Here are 5 hacks to make the process easier for both you and your dog.
1. Put dog toothpaste directly on your finger. At first, you can let your dog lick the toothpaste off. Once they get a taste for it, gradually get them used to putting your finger in their mouth and rubbing the toothpaste over the teeth. The enzymatic toothpaste will help clean their teeth even without the scrubbing of a toothbrush. Once your dog is used to having your finger in his mouth, graduate to a finger toothbrush – a cap for your finger with bristles on one side. (Note: NEVER use toothpaste made for humans, and only use products formulated for dogs.)
2. Groom your dog after a long walk or heavy play session. They’ll be tired and less likely to fight with you when you groom them.
