I use dental chips/treats. I've tried the toothbrush route but the pup hates it and I feel foolish trying to hold him and shove a toothbrush in his mouth.

i like the blue rubber finger thing instead of the actual brush. i gave up on an actual toothbrush 2 dogs ago. I vaguely remember my mom handing me the toothpaste kit and saying "take the dog into the bathroom and brush his teeth" and I was like WHAT?! Anyway, I quickly learned from trial and error that the dog who was supposedly experienced in tooth brushing was having nothing to do with me shoving a brush in his mouth.

Gunny's much easier. He'd probably eat the whole toothpaste tube if i'd let him, so it's easy to get a finger in there and rub around.

If you use your finger or the rubbery finger thing, basically the dog licks the toothpaste and you can scrub around. If you can hand feed your dog (ie he's not food aggressive), you should be able to brush his teeth.

Yeah theyre expensive but say you brush once a week, one greenie for every cleaning, not too bad.

Or a lot of praise. Just make it fun.

When I first get my pups i pull their ears, rub their paw pads, their bellies, necks, scruff, nose, I pick em up, set em down for no reason, just mess with them in general. That way theyre not skiddish when I go to checking for healthy teeth, ears, eyes, etc.

Its all about establishing a routine and sticking to it. You'll see progress if youre consistent.
