Book Dog Walk


Nobody likes having tooth trouble, and you certainly do not want your little furever friend to have it either. When choosing the right pup for you, know that there are certain breeds who are genetically predisposed to dental problems, such as small and toy breeds who cannot fit all 42 teeth comfortably in their tiny mouths. Narrow muzzled breeds, like Collies and Daschunds, can develop periodontal pockets which can lead to infections, and be subject to overbites too. Those smooshed faces we so adore in Pugs and other brachycephalic dogs are also prone to tooth problems. If you are looking for a pup whose teeth will last with regular brushings and cleanings, check out these top 10 breeds with the best sets around!
