    For our rottie that chewed the new kitchen table and chairs !!

    I wrapped cling film round all the legs..:cool:

    Got some butter or margierine and blended some extra hot chill powder into it.
    Applied the paste onto the cling film, and watched the dog drink lots of water after trying to chew the legs again.:rolleyes:

    She never tried it again !!!!!!! :thumbup::thumbup:

    i used cheap vix vapor rub from asda no stains left when bobby was at the chewy stage as he liked the walls could try that mixed in with hot water then let it cool down try that i dunno really.


    We also put some insanity sauce down on things he liked to steal that he wasn't ment to as the smell alone made him run for the hills lol.

    Have you tried vinegar - I mix t with water into a spray can and it stops Ruby chewing. The smell is not overpowering - unlless I have become immune to it:D
