I would not advise anyone checking a dogs mouth while they are asleep..especially a deep sleep. To attempt this one is looking to get bit. What would a person do if they were sleeping and someone opened their mouth..I'm guessing punch them right in the face, since they are now half up and don't know whats going on. As far as brushing the teeth, that is something that should be done and done on a regular basis. It doesn't matter if its hard to do at first, the dog will learn. I haven't been to a vet that doesn't ask if I brush their teeth. When you(not you, but a general you) have to pay and put your dog under for a dental, it will be costly and dangerous...since it does require anesthesia. Bones are good, but brushing should be a part of it too.

OP - I've found this product
Natural Pet Grooming Products - Pet Shampoos, Conditioners, Colognes, Oral Care, Stain & Odor and More!
used with brushing with an enzyme toothpaste really cleans their teeth up. It loosens the tartar and plaque.

It's highly advisable to brush your dogs teeth and will save costly dental cleanings down the road.

I find examining the mouth easier if you approach the dog from the side, and not head-on.
I agree. Do it when the dog is awake.
If you ever attempt to brush the teeth (recommended to everyone) be sure to give a treat right after. Yes it defeats the purpose a tad but the dog will take to brushing much more quickly
There's also dog formula tooth paste. Do not ever use human tooth paste. Don't ever use Xylitol. Use flavored tooth paste (beef, chicken) or try baking soda.

I like to slide the toothbrush into the mouth (get a kid toothbrush for smaller dogs, adult soft for bigger dogs, you don't need a DOG toothbrush), along the teeth in the cheek pocket, without prying the jaws apart. It makes the dog feel much less threatened that way.

Thanks for that link. I use the arm and hammer products now and they work great too.

I like this stuff. It works. The only issue I have is I can't find out what the "natural cleansers" are.

My dog eats his raw carcass's every night and the occasional rib bone.

Not a speck of tarter, and never had a toothbrush in his mouth

And if the day ever comes that your dog can't chew bones?? Will you brush the teeth then??? Just asking. I don't think that giving them bones is bad at all and it does help.

Okay, but I did it before and my dog never bit me ? but ok.. every dog is diff.
I know a lot of people who dont brush their dogs teeth.. my vet never asked if I did either.

its really not necessary... If I clean my dogs teeth every year or so then why complain?

I had a boxer, that NEVER got her teeth cleaned and her teeth were white as crap. very clean...

If I feel as if my dogs/pups REALLLLYY need their teeth cleaned then i will do so... its not a big deal, god.

! Bite your tongue - LOL...me guess I be sticking my fingers in his mouth.

Side note: and not suggesting as I am not sure that this is what helped, he did have the browning on his canines and although I had him on raw for a year + (was on kibble for 1st 4yrs - he's 8 now)...I started putting a dropper full of colloidal silver in his water - not for this reason either, just to kill bacteria in his water - a month or so later there was only a tiny speck. I had since stopped the CS and the specks are gone too
