Default Apparently I'm a Bad Dog Mom....

....because after reading the dental thread I realized I've never brushed either dogs teeth. I honestly thought it was something that you only did if your dog had a specific dental issue...

Sally is 9 and has a one dental a couple of years ago and Jack is 7 and has never had one. They do have antlers, water buffalo horns, and Nylabones always available and are fed mostly kibble with the occasional canned added in.

How do I start out brushing? How do I train them to accept it with minimal drama? How often do I brush? Do I just get one if those kits? How do I properly brush a dog's teeth?

It kind of sucks, I'm already the bath lady and ear cleaning lady, now I get to be the tooth brush lady-lol.
