If it is PICA then there is not much you can do as it is believed it's caused by pathological changes in the brain and can be inherited. You can perhaps increase excercise and change your dog's diet, of course after it's diagnosed and examined by veterinarian. DO NOT PUNISH your dog by spraying it or by any other means because it is not helpful and therefore not necessary.
