Anti chew spray is tasty????

Can anyone recommend me an anti chew spray or anti chew spray recipe that works please?
I've tried Shaws and Bob Martin but as soon as I spray them on, Otto runs over and lickes them off then carries on chewing the furniture. I think I've got a sadist dog!
I always offer him a chew toy as an alternative but the furniture seems to taste batter, especially when I put anti-chew sauce on it!
Any help would be gratefully recieved.

Re: Anti chew spray is tasty????

Ha ha! I had to smile when I read your post. I'm sorry I can't ofer you any advice though cos I had precisely the same problem and I think it said on the back of the anti-chew stuff that I used 'effective on 98% of dogs' Evidently not on Vizslas! Good luck - I just endedup having to wait till he grew out of it (at about 1 yr old)

Try tabasco sauce.

Now why did I suspect it might be a Vizsla thing?
They're not actually dogs at all are they?!


Thank you for the suggestion Burrowzig. I was hoping there might be something a little less extreme as there is always a danger he will lick it all up and as yet pain does not seem to lead to learning!

Any other suggestions out there?

Re: Anti chew spray is tasty????

We used to have a GSD that sucked his tail we put tobasco sauce on it and he sucked his tail even more. Vic vapour rub is supposed to work. I used bitter bite but it didn't really work.

When I was young my family had a labrador Cindy that would eat anything we used something called bitter apple on things with her. That worked she wouldn't go anywere near anything with that on it.

Nothing worked with my setter she even ate the plastic tray out of her crate once.

Re: Anti chew spray is tasty????

bitter apple. but i recommend you make sure you deter them with the taste, best way wit so soaked some cotton wool in it then pop it in there mouth and hold it shut for a couple of seconds. they wont want to go near anything you spray it on.

Vicks Vaporub. They hate it. Plus it doesn't evaporate or drip off

Re: Anti chew spray is tasty????

skye started chewing our kitchen wall the other day, and i put on some Canac Pet Behave spray and she immediately stopped going to it. doesnt mean it would have an effect with otto though :P

chili powder is also a good deterant, just dont use too much hehe.
