Bella likes lemon juice (in small quantities) too, so that would likely result in chewed furniture.
1. Don't allow your puppy to chew on furniture, or it will be harder to break her of the habit. Crate her if you have to.
2. Get some Bitter Apple spray, and use that on your furniture, and everything else that she chews on. Get the bigger bottle....
Edit: You can also spray the Bitter Apple on your hands. Don't allow your puppy to continue to bite your hands. I know others will disagree, but if you don't nip that in the bud, there's a good chance you'll be battling this for months. It's normal puppy behavior, but it is possible to control it if you're willing to do what's necessary. We eliminated 95% of it by squirting lemon juice in her mouth (while saying "no bite") using one of those plastic, lemon shaped squeeze bottles that you find in the produce section. When she didn't bite, she would get lots of praise ("good no bite"). We had to use a lot though, because as I mentioned above, she actually likes the taste of it in small quantities. She would lick it off the floor.
