product highlights

Grannick's original spray formula is designed to discourage fur biting, hair chewing and licking of hot spots. Invented by a pharmacist in 1960, Bitter Apple spray leaves an unpleasant yet harmless taste on your dog's fur to discourage licking, chewing and biting. Keeps dogs from licking wounds and hot-spots, so they have a chance to heal properly.

Ingredients: Water, isopropanol 20%, bitter principles, and extractives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this spray We have 2 cats that seem to like to chew cords. Someone told me about this spray so thought I would try it. It works wonders! They don't like the smell and they no longer chew the cords. They were chewing my oxygen tubing so I sprayed it and no more worries. I have already told others about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product my daughter has a 1 yr old golden retriever and he started hair chewing on both his hind legs (same spot)..his skin looks great no sores no fleas(on flea preventative)so she got the bitter apple and has not returned to those spots. Tried chewing other spots, which was expected,sprayed, and has not chewed..bad habit to break but with the bitter apple it has helped!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will be buying more I love this stuff! Not only does it keep my dog from chewing on the couches and walls but it also seems to calm him down out of a hyper state. I have a Shiba Inu and he hates the smell and taste of this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Works like a charm! I have two dogs. One is an American akita (Bella) and the other is her 9 week old pup (Luke) mixed with a husky (huskita). Bella wasn't much of a chewer when we first got her but she eventually loved everything that had to do with sting or electrical cord. I bought this and she stayed away from it completely. 2.5 years later she had Luke and he is a little harder.. He likes to chew EVERYTHING. I sprayed this on everything he liked to chew on, especially the electrical cords, and he won't touch them now. You might have to spray it two or three times for them to get the point but it definitely works and I would recommend it to anyone with a chewer. I sprayed it on the bottom of the boxspring where he likes to chew and he was so upset he barked at me for 10 minutes! haha! He knows it tastes awful and he wouldn't dare to touch it again. This stuff is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This stuff really works great. I spray it on anything I do not want the dog to touch. He will go up to it and start to smell it and back away shaking its head. He does not like the smell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good product This product works well for keeping your dog from chewing on the legs of furniture. It also works well as a training tool. My only complaint is that you need to reapply every other day, it seems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Pekeapoo HATES this stuff! I tried the Nature's Miracle bitter spray right off the bat, and my puppy wasn't fazed a bit...so I switched to Bitter Apple. You do have to spray it every day on the really hot spots around your house, but it's totally worth it. My coffee table was the first thing I sprayed with Bitter Apple, and he hasn't gone back to it again...granted, he's gone to other things, so I'm constantly finding new "favorite chew spots" to put on this list. This morning, Euro found a new place in the living room. All I did was bring out the Bitter Apple bottle and he took off to chew one of his toys instead. He does not fear all spray bottles though, so no worries there. This stuff is GREAT!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for my Lab OK, so Labs chew EVERYTHING and I know this. But I was hoping this would be a deterrent to him chewing the wood frame of his dog door. I saw no decrease whatsoever in his chewing after liberally dousing it with this spray. That said, every dog is different and it may work for your dog but it didn't work for mine.

Can I spray this product on my hands for a short period of time to stop my puppy from biting them? Puppy won't give up at night before bed so I thought maybe I could use the spray a few times. Then ill wash my hands after puppy calms down.

Asked by: Wendy Byrd
I am currently using it on my toes and fingers to deter my chihuahua puppy from biting them. I only wish I had thought about this 4 weeks ago. The Vet says he'll stop when he gets his adult teeth. In the mean time, I'll use Grannick's Bitter Apple.

Can I apply this product directly to my dog's nose to keep him from licking it? His nose is in bad shape from incessant licking, which started from mild nasal dripping. He just licks off vasoline/moisturizers.

Asked by: Crested Owner
Yes, this can go on the dog's nose, but jeep in mind it has alcohol in it, so it will be very painful. Have you tried a bactine spray? Its like Neosporin but comes in a spray that has a horrible taste and strong antiseptic smell (my dogs hate Bactine worse than bitter spray.) This would help the dog stop licking and help heal the wounded nose. Whatever product you use, I wouldn't spray it directly on the nose-that's very aggressive punishment for a pup. Spray on your hand and apply to the nose, then offer a food treat and affection so they know it's not meant as punishment :)

Can this product be safely used on cats?

Can this be safely used on plants to keep my cat from chewing on them?

Asked by: SPQHLS

How often do you have to apply this?  Is it every day or every other day?  Does it eventually keep them from chewing on things without having to use?  We have an 8 month old pit/terrier that has been chewing up sofa cushions and base of loveseat.
