Either use steel for the bottom section that he could reach, or put a piece
of pipe over the ropes to protect them.  Be sure to make the ends of the
pipe smooth or use something to keep them from rubbing through the rope.

Here in the states they sell a 'bitter apple' anti chewing liquid that is
pretty good, I'm not sure how long it might last outside in the weather
