The Chew Brush is a bone-shaped dog toy that's meant to double as a toothbrush and clean your dog's teeth as they chew it during play. It's specified that the blue and green toy is made of food-safe plastic (as per the regulations of the American FDA) that can be cleaned with soap and water or via your dishwasher's uppermost shelf. The idea is that as your dog bites down on the toy, it'll gain access to small openings and inner bristles that'll help wipe away dirt.
The cost of Chew Brush is $14.99 plus $5.00 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Chew Brush at the discounted price of only $7.99 for a total price of $27.98.

So your dog can start making use of their Chew Brush, you'll need to offer it to them. You could either place it in front of them, toss it from a far distance, or hold it out in one hand with the aim of starting a game of tug-of-war. How you offer the toy to the dog should be based on the dog's personality and their usual preferences.
Once your dog has this toy in their possession, you should allow them to freely chew on it for at least several minutes. As they chew, multiple nubs on the outside of the toy will massage their gums. Meanwhile, their teeth will also travel back and forth through small openings in the toy's shell, a motion that will help remove tartar and plaque. Finally, hidden bristles within the toy will finish the job by aiming to remove any other types of dirt or food residue from their teeth.
When your dog is done chewing their toy for a while, it's a good idea to either wash it with soap and water or load it into your dishwasher. If you choose to clean it in the dishwasher, be sure to add it to the top shelf instead of the bottom one. Once it's been washed, it must be stored in a safe, clean location until you want to offer it to your dog again.
Some dog toys are designed only for large breeds, while others are made just for smaller pups, but the Chew Brush is suitable for dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. A little dog will be able to fit one of these toys comfortably into their mouth, but they're also large enough to satisfy bigger dogs and keep them interested. If you have multiple dogs in your household, all of them may be able to share one toy, although it should always be washed before a different dog begins to use it.
Each Chew Brush is mainly blue, which is a color that dogs tend to find attractive. The bone shape will also attract dogs to the toy since they'll notice that it resembles the shape of a rawhide bone that they'd normally chew on. As a result, your dog will probably need very little encouragement to start playing with the toy.
The plastic used to create this toy is free of BPA, latex, and other impurities that could potentially harm living things. As alluded to above, this plastic has also been deemed to be food-safe by the United States Food and Drug Administration. All of this means that you won't need to worry about your dog getting sick or otherwise exposing themselves to toxicity by using this toy.
If you have a dog that likes to play in the water more than they like to play on land, you may be happy to find out that this particular toy will float. It'll float in any body of water, so you'll be able to use it in a pool, a lake, a river, or wherever your dog likes to swim. The addition of this toy may even encourage your dog to get in a tub for a bath!
The Chew Brush has been invented by a dentist and his wife, who's a dental hygienist, so you can rest assured that its design adheres to the major principles of dental care.
If you don't have a toy like the Chew Brush, you might decide to brush your dog's dirty teeth with a regular toothbrush. This can be unpleasant for any owner, though, as the dog might choose to growl aggressively or even bite the owner's hand while the job is going on. Your dog will be unlikely to get vicious with you if you offer them this tooth-cleaning toy instead, though, since they'll see the whole thing as a game instead of an unpleasant chore.
Dogs typically don't visit dentists, so after a number of years of eating dog food (and possibly who-knows-what outside), their teeth may begin to smell quite putrid. This could even discourage other people you know from petting or otherwise interacting with your dog. Fortunately, by cleaning your dog's teeth, your Chew Brush will help eliminate any bad smell that their breath might be carrying and make the dog and anyone around them happier overall.
You should never apply toothpaste meant for humans to this tooth-cleaning toy since this type of toothpaste may not be safe for dogs to use. Instead, there's a dog-safe type of toothpaste available that you can squirt onto your Chew Brush before your dog uses it. To request it, you'll need to contact the toy's manufacturer.
Cats shouldn't be using the Chew Brush, even if they have dirty teeth or bad breath, because the vast majority of cats will have a mouth that's too small to comfortably accommodate the toy. In fact, if you were to offer it to a cat for use, chewing on it may literally hurt their mouth. To add to this toy's versatility, it would be helpful if a smaller version of it could be made available for cats or even rabbits.
For optimum results, it's best if your dog chews the middle of their toy instead of chewing the ends. The far ends of each toy don't contain any openings that'll remove tartar and plaque, so if your dog chews only on those, they'll lose access to that benefit. If you notice that your dog is only chewing one or both ends of their toy, you may want to point at or squeeze the middle in order to redirect their attention.
A dog's dirty teeth could eventually become infected teeth, and you might end up spending up to hours at a time taking them to the vet's office to have them professionally cleaned and otherwise treated. Alternatively, if you can get any dog to use their Chew Brush for a few minutes each day, you'll likely be able to avoid this sort of debacle.

I usually purchase chew toys/brush toys for my 2 year old lab. He destroys them in a few days. Usually, I spend very little on them so he can enjoy them more frequently. This one was more expensive and I decided to give it a try. As you can see from the photo, it only lasted a one time use for my dog. I thought it would be more durable than it is. I would recommend it, however I won't buy it again based on not being able to use it again.
