I purchased this product in hopes that it would meet the expectations that all of the previous reviews had set and it exceeded them. We have two dogs, one large and one small, that every time they're left at home alone they eat parts of the furniture to show their displeasure in our leaving them. No matter what we gave them to play with or chew on to curb this problem nothing was working. I ordered this product and the next time they were going to be left at home I sprayed down every part of the furniture they could reach before we left and when we came home the furniture was still intact and they actually chewed their rawhide's. This product is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! The value for us was also great because all it took was the one time of spraying everything down to curb their furniture eating habit. I would definitely recommend this product to any dog owner with chewing issues. It was a life saver =) The only possible downside is that you want to test this on the furniture fabric first to make sure it wont stain. It didn't on ours, but it is a warning on the product.

We recently purchased patio furniture for our home and I did not want my 2 puppies tearing everything up or even lounging on the furniture. I bought the Bitter Apple Spray but was of course, skeptical. My dogs will chew on almost anything in sight. I first sprayed my son's stuffed animal that the puppies cannot resist chewing on every time they come across it. After spraying, I laid the stuffed animal on the floor and they ran up to it, sniffed it and walked away & they never touch it now! This has happened with all the items I have tested this spray on. Now that our patio furniture is up, they have stayed away from everything thus far. Although it may not affect some dogs, it works great for us and I would highly recommend this product!

My friend has a golden retriever who's a real sweetie, except for one really annoying problem: she's a maniacal licker. (I mean the dog, not my friend.) Anyways, before coming to visit, I now spray this stuff all over my hands, forearms, and lower legs. The pooch takes a couple of licks out of habit but then quickly turns away with a puzzled look on her face. Now I can visit my friend without being given an unwanted tongue-bath.

I had to use this stuff when I first got my puppy because she was eating the house! But as soon as I sprayed this a few times on the walls, couch, even white carpet, she learned to chew on the toys that didn't tase so bad! It never stained and I bring it to dog proof any new place we go to, just in case. I highly recomend this for pet owners with dogs of any age.

Of the deterrents I've tried, this is the first one I found that works. The only thing I don't like about it is how often it must be re-applied.

  • A. I have used it for this by holding a kleenex over the raw spot and spraying around it. Works pretty good.

  • A. I would not put it on broken skin. Ouch, it will likely burn. You can use it on skin but not broken skin.

  • A. Please, take the dog to a vet first, it is better to get the right medicine and the dog get better, than over the counter that they end up allegric to and it cost you hundreds to get them well again. I learned the hardway. what started with a small hot spot on my little ones back ended up with her chewing all the fur off her back and legs..why...?? she was allergic to the bitter apple. Cost in the end..??$378.
