Q. Is there a collar and leash you can recommend that my puppy won’t chew off?
Hello.

I purchased a sensation collar from you a couple weeks ago. My border terrier had chewed it off within a few hours. This is an ongoing issue. Finding leashes etc that he can?t chew off. Do you have any recommendations for leashes and collars that are resistent to a pups chewing? I have ordered and used a number of your products and appreciate the consistent quality and advice on the website and in the newsletter.

Thanks.
Jenelle

A. I wouldn’t put anything on this dog that he could reach to chew (harness, leash) unless I was supervising him. If he isn’t on a leash WITH you and you are in a position to supervise him then he should have any reachable equipment taken off and he should be placed in a secure crate or kennel with an appropriate item for him to chew. So much of raising puppies is management of their experiences and environment.

You can try using Bitter Apple spray on your leashes and harnesses as an adjunct to interrupting him when he chews in your presence but I would not rely on that for prevention.

I hope this helps.

Bitter Apple Spray can discourage animals from fur biting, hair chewing, and hot spots. Bitter Apply Spray is also a great training aid for dogs and puppies. Spray Bitter Apple directly into the dog's mouth twice a day for three days. Then put one spray of Bitter Apple into a spray bottle filled with water. Spray everything the dog may try and chew. THIS WORKS!!! After 3 days of tasting Bitter Apple the dog will avoid anything that even comes close to smelling like Bitter Apple.
