    Default Dogs and Lemons?

    I was reading an article that suggested using lemons as a deterrent for licking, as in putting lemon juice on your skin so that when the dog licks you, it tastes the sourness/bitterness.

    I don't really have lemons in the house ever, but have any of you tried this? Or do any of your dogs love/hate the taste of lemon?

    My old cocker hated lemon, she would even make yuck faces! My great dane loved to chew lemons and play with them until the juice came out, then she would make yucky faces.

    IŽve tried bitter apple / lime spray to keep dogs (and years ago a ferret) from chewing things (including my hands)

    With the ferret it was very very funny. You wonŽt complain about puppy bites again after you experience a ferret biting you (in play, just as dogs do). When she bit me I touched her tongue with my previously sprayed fingers, she would go mad making yucky faces and rolling over the carpet to get rid of the taste. It cracked me up and taught her I tasted awful.

    Misha doesnŽt care about lemons (she will eat them full). I have never given Homer a lemon, but heŽll probably eat them too (he eats his poop which is worse than any lemon )

    I think it falls into the same category as Bitter Apple spray. For some it works, for some not. In HKs case, I think the bitter apple spray made her like the Haralson apple tree even more. Siggy pic on the left. Thats the sour face from eating one of the apples. One of the apples that she could not get enough of.

    If you find that Abbey likes lemons, you could try wasabi. After eating sushi one evening, Boo helped me load the dishwasher. He inadvertently got about a tsp of wasabi off a plate. You should have seen the faces he made!!! Now he thinks before he licks. 8)

    LOL I didn't think lemons would really work for that. Wasabi might be a good one, although if I remember correctly she likes horseradish...
