Yes, the insides and tops are important too. However, that takes time, as the dog learns to tolerate brushing and trust your intentions. Good Luck, be patient....and give lots of praise. Giving treats is a good training tool, they can be slowly removed as progress is made with obedience.Quote:Originally posted by Thelma Lou:
... Also, about brushing, what about the inside of the teeth.....how do you get to those, or do you?
We also used the washcloth approach with Booker and eventually when she was comfortable with that we were able to move beyond to a soft toothbrush. We then got cocky, however, and decided to try one of those disposable electric toothbrushes on her... that was a REAL mistake and definitely caused a setback!Quote:Originally posted by threedognight:
Ginger and Bailey never would let me use a toothbrush, so I continue with a washcloth at least once a week.
