Lately Kananga has started chewing on some furniture. Nothing very damaging, but it's a start of a bad behavior. I thought it'd be best to find something he despises to prevent him from chewing further since he's doing this while i'm away.
He has plenty of toys out to chew, so that's not the problem.
I read on here that tea tree oil works really well with deterring basenjis. I had my doubts….
Put some on a q-tip to see how he'd react... wow... I've never seen him react to anything that way before. Instantly curled his lips and shook his head walking away. He wanted nothing to do with that. So I took the q-tips and rubbed the oil over the chair leg he had started to chew and the corner of the couch that he sometimes gnaws on. He would not go near either.
Hopefully this is all the chewing he'll do, but now I know how to prevent a bad habit from getting worse.
