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 Bristly Brushing Stick upright to chew on. Every dog is different and some prefer to use the brushing stick lying flat. A small percentage of dogs may refuse to use it. There is No Guarantee that your dog will use the brushing stick, just like he/she may refuse to play with other toys. Some dogs are not toy motivated even when treats are involved!

Think of this as a “toothbrush” for dogs – something you always have around. When it is worn out, you buy another one.  Dogs that are light to medium chewers need to replace the product about every 2-6 months. Dogs with stronger jaws will wear it out much faster, so choose a larger size for durability. Not recommended for power chewers (a more durable design is coming soon). Always use caution and supervise your dog by removing any pieces that have broken off. Do not allow your dog to swallow pieces.

Instructions: To removes and defends against plaque/tartar, apply a few drops of Tropiclean Tooth Gel on the toothbrush.

Brushing Stick Tips:
1.) 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.
2.) 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
