    Anyone know a chew stopper substance that actually works?

    so far boo has taken a keen liking to my walls, door frames and skirting boards.

    I have covered them in chew stopper spray from p@h but he actually likes the stuff and chews more after ive sprayed it.

    as i live in a rented flat my landlord will not be too pleased to find is woodwork has been chewed to death. :(

    Not 100% if any of them work but i have been told to try lemon juice, vinegar or tabasco!

    Ive tried vinegar and it works for about 5 mins lol!! x

    I have the same problem, and we are renting also! Our skirting boards are dark wood and we just bought some varnish/paint to cover up over it each time he chews them! That way the landlady cant really tell! :D
     
  5. Hot chilli sauce is supposed to work - i dont know though havent tried it.

    I use a water pistol if i catch one of the dogs chewing - harmless and works a treat!

    I used a water pistol on my bun Lucky before, did not phase her one bit. lol
    Mind you there is not a lot that does phase the little girl. Got builders in at the moment, drilling and doing all sorts...and she would love to help them. :rolleyes:

    Do you think maybe if you bought flavoured wooden chews that I've seen then she'd lose interest in the furniture/skirting boards etc?

    Chew stopper worked wonders when I got normi but I ran out. I have been using tabasco since and he hasnt re-chewed any areas that I have put it on! x
