When is it going to be back in stock?
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?
Does not work
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.
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.
Has controlled each of our puppies
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.
Great Chew Deterrent
I love this product. It’s a safe effective way of keeping chewers from chewing things you don’t want your pups chewing.
This product didn't really work well. After my human sprayed the area of carpet I was chewing, I let the smell dissipate then I went right back to that spot. Mommy says it's because I'm from a stubborn breed....I say it's because I like her taste in carpets!
Know how to use it.
I've had great success training my dogs with this product. You have to know how to introduce it properly so that when they smell it, they know it tastes bad. So many just start spraying objects expecting it to deter. That doesn't work for all dogs. A trainer explained to me... spray a cotton ball, then place it in the dog's/puppy's mouth and gently hold closed for a couple seconds. Then let them spit it out. Once they smell a surface that has been sprayed they remember the taste. Has worked for me every time and I've rarely had to respray items I didn't want chewed. It helps to redirect their attention to appropriate chew toys.
Flat out: this stuff actually works
My guy is a bad chewer. Everything, shoes, cords, rugs, cardboard... but most problematic is he chews on baseboards and drywall. A squirt of this and he stops for good. Weeks later and still hasn't touched the spots i sprayed. And it doesn't smell like anything to me after a few minutes.
Does the job
It does the job but requires respirating, for example, on a wood hutch corner, everyday. The taste does repell our German shepherd pup from a hutch in the kitchen but it it took a week of daily Re spray for her to loose interest in that.
Bitter Apple has been a great find to keep my puppy from chewing many things, biting my clothes and getting into unwanted items. He is 11 months but still likes to explore and get into things that he shouldn't. Bitter Apple is a safe way to deter him safely and gently.
