The first part of the training is to include appropriate chewing. There are toys that should attract your Pomsky to chew on it. It should be the perfect size and color. Just be sure that it does not swallow it. Never give it something that is related to things around the house it can chew. You can give an old bag to chew on but it will not comprehend the difference between that one and the new bad you are currently using.

· White vinegar
· Lemon juice or apple cider vinegar

Buy one with the correct comfortable grip that fits your hand and makes it easy to use. Buy one that can spray at any angle and has a wide mouth so it is easy to fill it up. You cannot risk it by using a bottle that once had something in it.
Step 2: Gather the ingredients. Add 8 ounces of white vinegar and 15 ounces of apple cider vinegar into the bottle.

The lemon juice and apple cider vinegar has the ability to create a pungent and sour taste.
