Natural solution for cleaning dogs teeth

Good day, do you guys have any idea on how to keep a dogs teeth, breath and gums clean daily - but the natural way. My jack russels breath doesnt smell but the dachshunds breath is really bad. Why is that? Also - when they are outside for a while the dachshunds breath gets better but inside the house it starts to smell...if you know what i mean. is it because shes maybe more active with her mouth outside the house than just lying around inside? :)

Dear lil

The only natural way is to give them bones to chew. Brushing, mouth washes etc are all past natural.

First - what' s an unnatural way of cleaning teeth - using an angle grinder?

There are various things you can do, there was a question about this yesterday or the day before.

What dogs eat seldom affects their breath for more than a very short while - bad breath could be teeth, an infection somewhere in their airway (eg sinus, throat), or even a digestion problem. If it' s bad, see your vet. Either way, give them stuff to chew like hooves, large beef bones, etc.
