3. Find a Comfortable Position

It's important to find a comfortable position to brush your pet's teeth. If you stand over your pet or hold them down for tooth brushing, they are likely to feel threatened. This could cause them to become frightened of having their teeth brushed or even act aggressively out of fear.

Choose a location to brush their teeth where they feel relaxed and at ease. Try sitting at their level in front of them or to the side. If your dog appears anxious or uncomfortable, stop the session and try again when they're calmer.
