How many brush GSDs teeth?

Just wondering. Seems a bit over the top. I have never brushed a dogs teeth. If they are ever anesthetized for any reason I would have their teeth scaled if needed. There are also cleaning chews.

He prayeth well who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast;
He prayeth best who loveth best
All creatures great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth All.

I brush my dog's teeth. I also give her raw, meaty bones to help naturally keep the teeth clean, too.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

I've had great results with the Oravet chews. I'll probably never brush her teeth either.

It would take two people to brush Ingas huge teeth. One to sit on the back end and one on the front with the toothbrush. She would think we'd lost our minds.

Less often than I should. He loves it, or maybe he loves the beefy toothpaste.....

Never. Raw food does it. There is no tartar buildup ever.

I wish we could afford raw. Sounds/looks expensive. Can you PM me to point me in the right direction research it some more? Whenever I see/hear about raw diet I only think meat, which isn't cheap.

I do. My 12 y/o still has pearly white teeth. i've brushed them her whole life. My dogs are not raw fed but they have clean teeth and do not have bad breath. I don't like for my dogs to be stinky and nasty. They sleep in my bed, they kiss me. So they get regular brushings
