Saydee had a brief love affair with electrical cords. We did exactly the same thing Ann mentioned above. "Leave it" is a good phrase, but we also sometimes just said "NO!" in a stern voice. Either way she new it wasn't gonna fly with us. The bitter apple worked really too. She took one taste and never went back. (Bitter apple is also handy for a whole plethora of other issues from leash chewing to carpet fringe chewing). I think the biggest thing is to keep Pancakes in your site at all times, because catching her in the act is the most effective and quickest way to stop the problem. Hang in there, it won't take long if you're consistent. It only took a few reminders for Saydee to get the hint. Now she will nap next to my laptop cord without even thinking about chewing it.
Oh, and always stick a better alternative in her mouth, so she knows there are things she CAN chew on!
