Getting Wolfie to Stop Chewing and Teething
This training blog is going to be rather short, because I believe I have found the Holy Grail of dogs chewing and teething.
I was at a client about two months ago and our discussion turned to their dog's obsession with chewing on wicker and hands. Besides the normal corrections that we always teach, I wanted to provide them with a "Plan B". I knew that the mainstream suggestions of the "Don't Chew on Me" items from the pet stores never worked, so I turned to my favorite suggestion of Hot Sauce.
They said they had some Hot Sauce and went to get it from the kitchen. Being from Southern California, I assumed it would be a Mexican Hot Sauce. I was wrong. My clients were originally from China so they brought out some great Mandarin Chinese Hot Sauce! (I hadn't had any of this stuff since I frequented a little place called The Mandarin Wak in California!) This stuff was HOT!
I put three drops of this stuff on my hands and rubbed it in. I then let their dog come back to my hand, (earlier he chewed on it), he took one sniff/lick, and he was done with that. I put a few drops on the furniture he was chewing. After one snip, he was done with that activity.
If your dog has a chewing problem, I think that Chinese Mandarin Hot Sauce is the way to go. (Since I am also a hot sauce lover, I want to way that is is also really tasty!) For more information, please contact The Best Dog Trainers in South Florida.
