I was a little skeptical that this would work. But I sprayed it on the 3 spots that my 8 month old German Shepherd pup has chewed in the house and he has not touched them since! Very happy!! Since one was a chair I love and the other two spots were the molding along the stairs.
You'll know if you got it on your hands and didn't wash it off well enough because it will taste like nickels. Just like your puppy, all you need to do is drink some water to make it go away. I've only ever used this on the most important things to have the dog not chew - bandages, electrical cords, etc. Safety and health items. But I've never had a problem. This stuff works.
only spray that works to stop constant barking or chewing on body parts
I've had 5 different dogs I've used this for. I'm cheap and when I ran out, I tried a vinegar solution that I used only one of my dogs and it worked. My newest one found the vinegar wonderful and cleaned up the spray. Finally I bought some more Bitter Apple and he was not happy with me. Yep, the only thing all my dogs didn't like. I need more until I know Zeke is out of the chewing stage completely.
I have a new puppy that likes to nibble on everything. I was really worried about him getting into cords, and also chewing on the bottom of the couch. I sprayed this and he was disgusted - which is great. Very effective. He stopped the behavior immediately.
I tried a homemade version of this that did nothing to curb my puppy‘s behavior of eating the carpet so I was skeptical. Within minutes of spraying bitter apple on the carpet my puppy had visible reaction. She would go near the spot and then back away. I could not smell much but the smell was so strong to her that she has not eaten the carpet in weeks.
I have tried this on a variety of items; a bench to stop a puppy from chewing, a plant to stop a cat from chewing, and a wound and hot spot to stop a dog from chewing. This stuff does not work. I finally flushed it and recycled the bottle.
I love this stuff. It got my boxer pit mix to stop eating my carpet in my old apartment and his bed as well. But when he became obsessed with his paws that's when we really put this to the test and it did good for a little bit but then he kept obsessing over his paws again. That's why I gave this a 4 star. Now I have a 1 year old half blue nose half red nose pit and he eats everything. So I tried to buy this and seems like it's been out of stock for a while now... what is going on?
Product Works exactly what it’s suppose to do discourages chewing. My 6 month old Rat Terrier say’s it taste YUCKIE. Saved our furniture and stair carpets.
Have used for years for each of our puppies. Makes training much easier. Much more effective than other brands I have tried. Pleased that Chewy carries Bitter Apple.
