    I had Jack's teeth cleaned last Wednesday and am now trying to brush them everyday and use the rinse. He thinks that I have totally lost my mind, and doesn't want to have anything to do with it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chloe won't even let me get close to her with it!!! LOL I figure it's going to take a little time and patience. I wish I would have started this when they were pups. I'll definitely do that next time!;)

    UGH... I know how you feel! Fozzie absolutely despises toothbrushes, even though I have brushed them since he was a puppy. He lets me do it, but he is not happy about it, at all, even with poultry flavored toothpaste. D=

    I am going to stick to bones. They do a much better job, anyhoo.

    Same here !!!! I've never done the job bones do !!! Have never needed a teeth cleaning either . I know it's more of a problem with small breeds .

    I don't brush. I can imagine Buster would tolerate it fine, Harry probably wouild aswell, but I think Mac and Sophie would have none of it.

    I noticed Gonzo and Fozzie both had a little tartar on their back molars... so I gave them each a knuckle bone to work on tonight. After 15 minutes, I took them away, and their teeth are now spotless! : D

    I would like to see a toothbrush do that.
