IMPORTANT: Your dogs may need a lot more encouragement to chew on rubber toys. To start, play games with the stick, like tug, "keep away" or "hide and seek", to encourage your dog to want to get it. It is flavored, so most dogs will want to bite down on it.
If your dog still resists, try stuffing favorite soft treats, food, peanut butter or coconut oil inside the reservoir to encourage your dog to bite down on it. Be patient, your dogs may need multiple sessions.
Most dogs will eventually hold The Brushy Stick upright to chew on.
First let your dog get used to biting the brush for several uses, before adding toothpaste into the top reservoir. Do not add toothpaste onto the bristles, because they might just lick it off.
Each dog is a bit different and has unique chewing behaviors. Some dogs will need some extra help to start brushing. Use the following instructions to help build a positive daily brushing routine, only if your dog does not easily take to brushing:
- Add peanut butter, toothpaste, or favorite treat into the Top Reservoir. Encourage them to bite and play by waving the brush in front of them.
Once your dog starts chewing, even for a short time, be sure to use clicker or praise, and give them a treat.
Repeat daily, until this becomes a routine
