Grannicks Bitter Apple Spray
Works great... usually!
I've been using this product for around 20 years, and have generally had fantastic results. However, I have had a couple of pets (1 dog, 1 cat and 2 ferrets) who LOVE the taste of this spray. The others (5 dogs, 8 cats, 7 birds, 3 rats and 1 ferret) disliked the spray and as a result stopped chewing on their prospective targets.
Highly recommend this product!

A comment on comments
I keep reading that people have used this to spray on themselves to keep puppies from biting them. Puppies bite, especially when teething. This product is intended to be used on the DOG to keep the dog from biting itself, pulling out fur and licking hot spots. It was not intended to spray on leaves, furniture and the like. Works great for the use intended.

Wonderful, effective product
My cats like to eat my plants which they then puke up all over the house. Not anymore. I spray this on my plants lightly and they stay away and it hasn't harmed my plants. I have to re spray about every two weeks.
Reading some other reviews, I think I will try it on my Saint Bernard's legs because he licks them compulsively until they hurt. Didn't know you could put it right on the animal.

Worth a try
I have had mixed success with product. I was trying to prevent two 60+ pound mastiff/pit mixes from chewing on their bedding at night while I slept. After a few weeks one of the dogs has not chewed on her bedding while the other is continuing to rip holes in her bedding. Basically the one dog tolerates the taste of the spray much better unless it is freshly and very heavily applied. The success of the product will vary from dog to dog as one should expect.
