Spray Your Worries Away, No More Red Spots Or Chewed Up Shoes.

There are several ways to train your pets and the worst thing that you can do to them is to beat them, there are other alternatives that are available to us other than that option. One of the ways to train a puppy or dog or even your wife is by using this stuff. Most of the time this will not work on your wife unless she is sleeping to eliminate snoring, one quick spritz in the mouth while she is snoring and it will also stop immediately. The only problem is that your wife is probably going too wake up, and you will probably need to choose your battles to one that can not hit back.

One of the ways that you can train your pet is by purchasing this Non-Toxic Bitter Apple spray from your local pet store for right around five dollars a bottle. This can be used on all types of animals such as cats, dogs, ferrets, birds, and yes even horses. This is a more human way to train your pets with out hurting them. Teething time is the most pretentious time in a pet’s life and it can be very frustrating for the pet owner. When you come home from a hard days work and you see your furniture or favorite book shredded into a thousand pieces you could lose your cool and strike out at your pet. By using this, the destructive behavior will all come to an end. Once you start to use this, you will either see an immediate improvement or you will see no improvement at all. It’s just that simple.

The most popular use that I have found for this spray is if your pets are either biting or scratching excessively, then all you have to do is to give them a quick spray and if this stuff works properly you will notice an immediate improvement. They will just stop scratching and biting. This is supposed to stop them from biting and scratching at any hot spots that they may have. When sprayed on any furniture legs or shoes or even hats or what not, that they have a tendency to keep chewing on this will also help in that area.

As far as I know, I do not see any side affects or adverse reactions on my pets. I have not personally sprayed this in my own mouth to see what this tastes like, but it is supposed to leave an unsavory taste in their mouth after they get a good taste of this stuff. This is supposed to stop any dog or cat from the continual licking of anything, but there are just some animals that this just will have no affect on.

The only thing that you have to worry about is if you spray this in their eyes, if you do just flush them out very well, and they should be just fine. The only active ingredients in this stuff are water, Isopropanol (20%) and bitter principals and extractives. You can purchase this stuff at just about any pet supply store; we got ours at Pet Co, for just about five dollars a bottle. This little bottle could possible last you just about three weeks depending on how much you use it.

There is no guarantee that this stuff will work on your puppy, dog, or wives snoring, but for five dollars for an 8 ounce bottle it is well worth the try. They do sell this stuff in the larger 16 ounce bottles for about ten dollars a bottle, if you think that you will need that much. I have found that one small bottle usually does the trick.

hahaha. Great review. I will have to try on my husband for his snoring. :-) I tried the jell type on my dog when she kept on chewing her leash. It some what worked but I finally got her to stop by "yelling" at her not to. My dog definitely has a tendency to chew and scratch. I let her chew on her toys, but am I supposed to not let her do that? Are we supposed to completely eliminate chewing behavior since dogs can't really tell what object is acceptable for chewing?

Training your wife with this spray might land you in the dog house.  Training your puppy with it though, not so much :P  By the way,  I added some information to the bar on the right, including the wiki, and some tags, so that this review will end up in the Pets Community.  Thanks for sharing, Harold! :)
