Anti-chewing Product Problems

1514 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Sasha1/2
Sasha loves Bitter Apple spray. She licks it off and then chews the walls. I've rubbed a bar of soap on corners, baseboards and cupboards... and she licks and chews that, too. She has bones and Kongs filled with peanut butter and ropes and squeaky toys. She's confined to a small bathroom with her toys when we're away. I need other ideas on how to discourage inappropriate chewing. Is there product besides Bitter Apple that might work?

Bitter Apple sometimes fails, b/c the tastebuds for bitter are in the back of the dog's throat, so he doesn't taste it until he chews and swallows. Capsaicin (Hot Pepper/ Tabasco) sometimes works. Otherwise, distraction, surprise, blockades ...
