I have two dogs that like to chew the dog tags off each other. They have chewed up the normal rings, wire ties, even a small padlock I have used to attach their tags with.

What you suggest to use?

What's to chew then?



Then the damn dogs need dentures.

What about that stuff they put on babies thumbs to keep them from sucking them? I painted my baseboard in the kitchen with Tabasco/cayenne mix when I kept my pup there while he was teething. Nipped it in the bud.

Aloe vera. Break a peice off of the plant and squize the juice on the tags.

It taste like crap.

Are they trying to chew off the tags specifically or are the tags coincidental victims?

Sometimes dogs will play (or fight) by biting each other on the throat. If both of your dogs have wet fur around their necks, this is probably what they're doing. If that's the case, be careful. Dogs have been known to get locked into the other dog's collar. They then will go into a biting frenzy with one or both possibly ending up dead.

If they are targeting the tags, it's obvious that they are planning an escape and are attempting to change their I.D. before the break. Just get their prints and put out an all points bulletin after they get out.

One idea is to draw down

On a more serious note:

I don't own a dog, but Jarhead_22's idea makes sense to me. The only dog I ever come into contact with, my GF's German Shepherd, doesn't have tags.

They mangle those split key rings making them sharp. The aluminum rabies tags they chew up. I actually have to put their rabies numbers on metal tags.

Great idea about the bitter apple that they put on dog bandages.

???

Aloe vera is a common food item here in Taiwan. In summer, one of the more popular drinks is a citrus-ade (I don't know what the fruit is, tastes like a lemon but they are small and round and green) with cubes of aloe vera gel in it "to promote health". They sell aloe gel in cans for purposes of consumption, too. Tastes fine to me; I used to get a half-liter of the 'ade every day on my way home from work to get my vitamin C.

Squeeze some habanero juice on the tags. Dogs eat shit (as in "fecal matter") all the time, but if you incinerate their tongue that might get their attention.
