    At what age can you give a Frenchie pup dental chews? Dentistik?

      Hey Miri,

      As always, we would recommend consulting your vet about any decision like this. However, dental chews are usually designed for adult dogs that have their permanent teeth. Puppies tend to lose their baby teeth between 3 and 5 months, so the average pup could start on dental chews from the age of 6 months.

    Hello Frankie, I have 2 questions about my new
    15 week old Frenchie please:
    1. How should I keep the inside of his ears clean?
    2. He loves to play and nip but his sharp baby teeth are painful. How do I train him not to bite me while playing?
    Thank you!!!!

      Hi Crista,

      Thanks for your questions!

      1. You can keep his ears clean by using your smallest finger and a tissue, once a week. Don’t dig too deep, but just enough to remove any excess dirt and muck. If they are extra dirty you may look into some ear cleaner to really rinse them out monthly.
      2. There are several ways to train your pup to stop nipping when he plays, but the most important thing is to be consistent with your behavior. Use one “Stop” word, something like a stern “No” every time he does something wrong works well. You can also encourage him to bite one of his toys instead of your toes and reward him with treats when he listens. If it becomes a problem and you aren’t able to influence his behavior with positive reinforcement, you could use a pen or other form of confinement as a “time out” space. He’ll eventually draw a connection between the bad behavior and the punishment.

      Hope that helps!
