No, don't. Fluoride, which is found in most human toothpastes, is highly toxic for dogs. And some contain Xylitol (artificial sweetener) I gather, which is also dangerous. Buy a purpose-made dog toothpaste - or you can make your own using baking soda (lots of recipes if you google).

"It is also to be noted of every species, that the handsomest of each move best ... and beasts of the most elegant form, always excel in speed; of this, the horse and greyhound are beautiful examples."----Wiliam Hogarth, The Analysis of Beauty, 1753.

Dogs don't have the sense to spit out their toothpaste like humans do. They swallow it, which is a big reason by human toothpaste is a no-no. I make my own dog toothpaste, and use a bit of peppermint extract if you like the "minty" smell :P
