However .... I now have IzzyDunk who loves to chew through my dining room table chair legs. She had other options ... very expensive bully sticks to chew on and a bucket full of chew toys. Is Izzy interested in them? Absolutely not. Whenever it is quiet in the house, and she is not in sight, the dining room table chair legs are getting thinner and thinner.
I tried Bitter Apple. No luck. I tried wiping them with orange juice. Again no luck. To make matters worse, the chewed wood was unfinished whereas the finished wood obviously remained the same. It looked terrible.
Now, I never poured Tabasco sauce down her throat, but I did liberally paint the entire chair legs with the hottest Tabasco sauce I could find at Whole Foods. (Of course, the Queen Isadora Duncan deserves the best Tabasco sauce available). I watched and waited. A miracle! No chewing. No more obvious bite marks! And even better was that fact that the orange in the Tabasco sauce made the raw wood on the chairs looked as though they were finished (unless one looked closely).
