Today, I bought some bitter-apple spray to stop my puppy chewing on everything. Later, I found out how effective it was, when I tried to eat a sandwich, and gagged at the horrifying taste on my hands. My dog seems unaffected, and continues to chew the table legs. FML

The pet store I bought it from told me it might not work and some dogs actually enjoy the taste. I would definitely go with the different spray idea or just use a different method.

#1 her problem is that she thinks dogs have the exact same taste buds as humans.
#13 you don't have to respond to #1 to get your comment read.
You just have to post something funny, and if it gets thumbed up enough everyone will read it before they read #1's comment.

Maybe wash your hands before you fucking eat?

This reminds me of the time in high school one of my teachers old us about how she put in her contact lenses and couldn't figure out why her eyes were burning like the fires of Hades. Turns out it was from the hair gel on her hands. I was like, "You don't wash your hands before you touch your eyes?" And everyone looked at me like, "You do?"


I guess common sense (and Hygiene 101) isn't common anymore.


Yeah, I find it strange how some people don't wash their hands. I mean, don't they ever feel like washing their hands? I wash mine all the time, even after I feed my cat. And I don't even touch the food, it just smells terrible so I feel filthy... My logic.

My friend had to buy that spray for the trim of her walls so that her rabbit would stop chewing on the edge of it. It didn't stop the rabbit from chewing on the walls, but it stopped us from enjoying the cookies we made later. :P

75, the purpose of mousetraps is obviously to delicately and gently snuggle the mouse with a metal spring-loaded rod designed to swing at the mouse's neck swiftly and forcefully. Death is an unintended side-effect that was not discovered until post-production due to a lack of inhumane animal testing.

When I first got my Yorky, he started chewing on the corners of everything! My little sister thought it would be a great idea to put hot sauce so he would stop. It didn't stop him, he would just sit down and eat the wall-_-


Use Original Irish Spring soap (the GREEN not the blue). It's non toxic and works better than bitter apple. I used to use it for my rabbit chewing on wall corners but it's just as effective on leather couches and furniture!!! Good luck OP and hang in there

have you considered the possibility that maybe even after vigorous washing with soap the taste still remains? like many things of that sort, perhaps the taste doesn't come out so easily.

Just because she could still taste it on her hands does not mean she didn't wash them. I used the same kind of stuff for my dog( who also thought it was yummy seasoning) the problem is it sprays out in a really fine mist & winds up everywhere. I washed my hands, made myself a snack, and apparently some had made it to the top of my coffee table, because when I wiped my mouth with my napkin, all I could taste was the awful flavor of grapefruit. Took me & my boyfriend at the time to clean that crap off everything. Our best guess was the ceiling fan spread that nasty stuff way farther than we ever intended.
