You can try spraying bitter apple or bitter yuck on it! It works great, you can get it from almost any pet store! It is non-toxic and just tastes yucky! You will have to keep reapplying it until Candy learns that her harness "tastes bad"

Good luck! :D

I agree that you could use no bite spray. If you keep using it, then soon your dog will realize that whenever she bites it (even if the spray isn't on) then it'll be a bad taste. After about a month or two, she should get it.

Rusty used to chew his harness all the time. The best thing to do is to take it off whenever you are not walking her. She doesn't need to have it on all the time, and it could just be that it is uncomfortable for full-time wear. (Lots of harnesses rub dogs raw under their arms, for example.) It may be a little inconvenient, but the inconvenience is worth the money you'll save not having to buy a new harness every time you turn around.
