Used as a training tool, dog anti-chew sprays are made with either all-natural bitter flavors or bittering agents. Once your dog tries to chew on something you’ve sprayed it on, they’ll be smacked in the face with a terrible taste. (The same way you’re smacked in the face with the smell of rotten eggs when they let one rip.)

While puppies would absolutely benefit from a product like this, older dogs set in their ways might also need a refresher on manners. No dog is too big or too small, too old or too young to break a chewing habit. Note that it might take a few weeks — many of these anti-chew spray brands advise you give a minimum of two weeks to make sure this works. Ahead, find our picks for the best dog anti-chew sprays!
