If your dog has stinky breath, brown and yellow teeth, or bleeds when they chew on their toys, you need to read this. I’m going to tell you what happened to Dobbie when regular teeth cleaning was neglected.
He learned the hard way but you won’t have to after reading this blog. Follow the simple steps below to learn how to easily clean your dog’s teeth without surgery.
How To Easily Clean Your Dog’s Teeth
Let’s get started…
First, get your dog used to having their mouth man (or woman) handled. We just opened his mouth throughout the day while telling our dog the command “it’s time to brush your teeth”. You can use any command here.
And don’t forget to give them some love or treats for doing so.
Second, our dog didn’t like Colgate lol and most likely yours won’t either. So grab some flavored dog toothpaste and let him give it a taste.
Maybe pick up a couple different ones and let your dog decide. You can also use enzymatic tooth-paste which will work even if you can’t brush. Just rub and let the enzymes do the work. I’m all about making it easy.
Rub some doggie toothpaste on their gums and see how it goes. If your dog enjoys it, then it’s time to grab the toothbrush next go round.
Next, brush their teeth frequently because you may not be able to thoroughly clean all their teeth. Keep going. This will get them used to the cleaning and you will be able to get to the rest of his teeth.
As always, show some love for good behavior.
Lastly, grab a chew toy for your dog. This will help remove tartar and plaque build up. A rope toy is great because as they chew and tear at it, the rope will fray, acting like floss. Remember I said I like easy. Every little bit helps.

I read a story about a dog named Dobbie and what happened when his owners neglected regular teeth cleaning…
Dobbie was adopted when he was about 1 year old. He was a very skinny but “healthy” dog. To help him gain some weight, Dobbie was given tons of love, food, and treats. Shortly after, they noticed his teeth getting yellower and browner.
They didn’t think it was too big of a deal because he was young until he stopped eating as fast as he used to and his gums bleed every time he chewed on his dog toy. They got with their vet who advised to start brushing but it was too late.
Dobbie has no other choice but to have surgery for a plaque removal process. During this they noticed he already lost 4 teeth due to plaque buildup. They felt bad and I know I would have as well. It is our responsibility to take care of these things for our dogs and this can be avoided by doing the steps above.
As for Dobbie, he has never had a cleaner healthier smile and lives a happy life with his owners.
Prevention is the key here. Grab some doggie toothpaste and chew toys and don’t let what happened to Dobbie happen to your beloved dog.
Thanks for Dobbie’s story and glad he is doing well. https://dogtoysadvisor.com
