    Default How to stop collar chewing

    How can I stop my smaller dog chewing the $70 anti bark vibration collar off my larger dog?

    I have the same problem with my rotties braught beautiful studded leather collars (one hot pink) and within a day they were in a thousand pieces all over the yard.
    Only way I found to keep collars safe is to not leave them on. Doesn't help you if it's an anti bark collar but goodluck

    Only thing I can think of is if you catch the little dog doing it, say NO and give it something it can chew. I've been lucky, bella is a mad chewer but has never been interested in their collars!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    vicks vapour rub on the expensive collar - or separating them (putting one in the house and one out) or one in a crate and one out, so the little one can't eat things it shouldn't. The big dog probably asked it to fix the collar tho.

    Have a few things around that are ok to chew - like big kongs with frozen roast chicken pieces in (try these the first time when you're home because some dogs do manage to get themselves into trouble with these).

    Ok, lets give vics a go with my nice new dog council tags. Slathered them in vics and left dogs overnight. Got up this morning, neither dog has a dog tag on!
    grrrrrrr they've been chewed off by each other, ganging up on me!

    I have found that the nail biting stuff from the chemist works well on plastic!

    If they are really into it, nothing will stop them. I would have previously given adive to use vicks, or other deterrents. But having just recently been through several weeks of hell trying to keep a dog from chewing at a wound plus ensuing bandage/collars/everything possible I will only offer the advice of separate them, or give up on the collar.
