Default So I thought I didn't have a chewer

So I've had Hardy for 3 weeks now, he is 11wks old. I thought I had lucked out and not got a chewer, as all of our rugs and furniture is still in-tacked. This morning I left him alone in the living room (a rare event) while I did my morning bathroom routine. To my surprise when I came out he had unraveled a good portion of the area rug under our coffee table. No big loss as it was a cheap rug.

I think the bitter spray you can buy in pet store sound like a great fix.

Has anyone used these products with success?

Pros/Cons?

A home made recipe would be great as the pet store spray costs $20 a bottle and my accountant (Wife) wont authorize the purchase.

Thanks Again

I've been using bitter apple spray to get Ozzy to quit pulling out his tail hair. So far, it works great. Just wish it would last longer.

At this age supervision and redirection to the appropriate object, or temporary confinement are the only effective methods to prevent puppy distruction.

It isn't possible to spray everything the pup might decide to chew on. If his puppy teeth are giving him the command to chew, he's going to find something that feels good on those teeth and gums!

i agree, he is teething and needs to have something to keep his mouth occupied!!! those puppy teeth hurt when they come out. try getting a damp hand towel and freezing it, then let him chew on that it will help the pain and keeps your rug safe.

I've used the spray and it's not worked - Harley is very distructive so I need to crate her even if I go upstairs for 30 seconds. It's amazing what they can do in such a short period of time LOL

None of these sprays have worked for any of my dogs, my comforter and box spring can attest to that. Supervision will be necessary.
