    Default Chewing collars

    Hi just wondering if anyone has any ideas how i can stop Charlie chewing my other dogs collars? For some reason he leaves his alone but we have got through 5 collars each for the other 2 over the past couple of months, its as though Charlie thinks hes the only one that should look good in his collar!!! Hubby is now banning any more collars untill i can stop him. He's 14 months old now so is'nt teething and he does'nt chew anything else. Any suggestions Please x

    Spray bitter apple on the other dogs' collars!

    Bitter apple is good (though Brooklyn will still eat this!). It is a bit of trail and error to hat your dog won't like.

    To get Brooklyn to stop chewing things (now all these suggestions won't work for a collar, some I just use in the garden... But thought I would list them anyway in case it helps you brainstorm):
    Tabasco Sauce
    Vicks Vapor Rub
    Coffee Grounds
    TeaTree Oil ( this is actually good for repelling fleas...but Brooky hates it!)
    Lemon juice (though this has to be constantly applied)

    Hope that leads to some ideas!!

    I'm not sure how to stop him from chewing, but if you can somehow order or get hold of a brand of collar called Lupine they are guaranteed for life. Whenever a collar, harness or leash is chewed just pack it up and send it back to Lupine with a note. They will send you a new one to replace it. They have cute colors and patterns from small to large dogs. I love 'em! www.lupinepet.com
