I love my dogs so much.  They are a very big part of my family.  Let me introduce you to them.

Milk-Bone Brushing chews

Lady Jane is part Lab, part American Bulldog and may be the world’s greatest dog.  John has had her since she was a puppy.  She loves to play fetch, run around, and pull the kids on their sleds.  She hates the rain and gets cold quite easily.  She adores the kids, and has become quite fat because they are always trying to feed her.  When the kids and I hang out and play, Lady Jane  wants to be right there.  She loves to play with the kids and I, and wants to be right in our faces.  I probably wouldn’t mind quite so much, but man, she has horrible breath!

Buddy Boy, part Lab, part Rott, he’s old and kind of does his own thing.  Sometimes he wants attention, sometimes he doesn’t.  John found him when he was pretty young.  He was abandoned on the side of the road, starved, and covered in sand burrs.  John tried to find his original owners, to make sure he wasn’t just missing.  Turns out, we are pretty certain he had been abused.  He spent years where he didn’t want to be petted, would not come in the house, and is terrified of leashes, collars and water.  When we moved into our house 4 years ago, that changed.  He had gone from refusing to come indoors when it was negative temps, to walking right in the front door the day we moved in.  Since being here, his demeanor has gotten much better.  He goes for daily walks around the neighborhood, loves attention and knows his place in this family.  He is 16 years old now, and we cherish our time with him because we know it won’t be too much longer.  His fear of some things makes it impossible to brush his teeth.

Milk-Bone Brushing Chews

If you have ever attempted to brush a dogs teeth, you will know what I’m talking about when I say that it is a pointless, exhausting activity.  Plus, when all is said and done, nothing has changed.  There has to be an easier way!  Turns out, there is.  It is Milk-Bone Brushing Chews.

Milk-Bone Brushing ChewsI am excited about just how easy the Milk-Bone Brushing Chews are.  Get this:  my dogs brush their own teeth.  And, they love it!   Milk-Bone brushing chews are bones designed with a 75 degree twist that allows the brushing nubs to reach down to the gum line and clean even those hard to reach back teeth.  Not only do they clean those teeth, but they also help to reduce tarter build-up and freshen their breath.  More to love – they are fortified with 12 essential vitamins and minerals.

I was curious to see what Buddy Boy would do with these brushing chews.  You see, every time he’s ever been given a bone for as long as I remember, he will carry it around the house, throughout our 4.5 acres, and then lay down with it.  Take a short break, think about it, and repeat.  At some point, he will stop and bury it.  I’ve never seen him eat a bone, so I assumed he would do the same thing with these.  He didn’t.  He actually dug right into it, so they must taste good {I’m not about to find out}.  They have a chicken flavor, so of course the dogs get pretty excited about that.

Milk Bone Brushing Chews Lady Jane Brushing ChewsWhen fed daily, Milk-Bone® Brushing ChewsTM are clinically proven to be as effective as brushing your dog’s teeth twice per week based on the reduction of tartar build-up and bad breath These chews have even earned the Veterinary Oral Health Council’s Seal of Acceptance.

As you can see, Lady Jane and Buddy Boy are quite happy with their “treats”.  I’m happy because they leave their mouth healthier and happier.  I’m happier as well because I don’t have to do the dreaded brushing of their teeth.

Besides the fact that the dogs love these, they are from Milk-Bone which is important to me.  There are only a few brands of food and treats that we buy for the dogs, and Milk-Bone is and always has been one of the trusted brands.  These dogs know what that big red box of treats mean, and now, they know what this box of brushing chews means.  It means the kids are about to give them  treat and they are going to be very happy about it.

  • My chihuahua is too cute. She has learned so many cute tricks very quickly, my husband just taught her to “box”. She stands on her hind legs and my husband puts his fists out to her and she hits one then the other. I guess it is something you need to see though lol.

    • I bet that is hilarious. You should post a video on my blog Facebook page, I would love to see that!

  • My dog is a German Shepard/Rottweiler mix and his name is Bullet. Now, with that description you would think he would be a very ferocious guard dog, but he is truly the biggest spoiled baby you have ever seen. He is truly part of my family and I love him so much. He’s a great dog.

  • I have been with Delilah since she was born and Lucky is a rescue that had quite the rough start but is now the one of the best dogs I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

  • I have five rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds, none of who like having their teeth brushed. I’m always looking for better ways to keep their teeth clean. I’ve been wanting to try thiese for my pups.

  • My Sorcha is a dorky girl. She loves all animals and she really likes to be outside. She is half husky and half German Shepherd. She is cream and tan and has gold eyes.

  • My dog is a male basset hound who is 10 years old and his name is Biggles. He loves to lay in the Sun, and I have to get him out of it after awhile because he will get burned. Also, everyday when I watch the news at 5pm, he starts barking and makes me get up and go outside with him. Something about the music and the start of the news gets him going!!

  • My dog is named Nancy.. she is a chug and she loves to chew on things.. especially cell phones, let’s just say I was not the happiest person after I found my phone chewed to bits.

  • My dog is a Jack Russell Terrier and she is the sweetest. She is 16 years old! She is highly intelligent and my best friend.

  • I have 6 dogs my smallest is a chihuahua who has epilepsy.We keep his seizures under control with medication so he can have a healthy full life
