Brushing Your Boxer’s Tooth
Show me an animal who enjoys brushing and we’d have seen the 1% of the minority of pets who enjoy a good mouth cleaning. However unpopular this activity is, it something that you will need to mind because like most pets – and humans – your Boxer dog will be prone to health problems if proper oral hygiene is not practiced.
For successful future tooth brushing, start off your Boxer while it is a pup. Incorporating grooming practices early allows your new Boxer to get used to these activities and become routine.
