Owning a dog can be an absolute joy, but it does come with some challenges. For instance, your floor and clothes may seem to be covered in fur 24/7, gardening can be impossible with a dig-loving pooch, and don’t even get us started on trying to get them to swallow a pill. Fortunately, there are plenty of hacks to make your life as a dog owner more manageable. From removing odors with baking soda and vinegar to squeegeeing the fur out of your carpet, you’ll be amazed at these tried-and-true dog owner tips.
Apply Dog Toothpaste To A Chew Toy For Dental Hygiene
While canines don’t require the same dental attention as humans, some owners like to brush their dog’s teeth as a preventative measure. If your pooch has an aversion to the toothbrush, try smearing some dog toothpaste onto their chew toy.
The toothpaste will get into their teeth as they chew, especially if you apply it to rope for a game of tug-of-war. There are also specially designed toys that have bristles for a more thorough clean.
