I have been fed up with the dogs getting into the trash…tired of picking up garbage on the floor. Tired of keeping it “out of reach on the counter (ya right ) …and tired of yelling at the dogs to get down ..or out…or even some thing I won't write here because it;s family site... You have a Lab. you know what I mean…
So here is my solution
Metal Trash can at your favorite department store.. $49.99
“Parts” at your local hardware store$ 8.99
30 minutes with a drill, screwdriver and a set of Pliers and…. FINALLY
DOG PROOF TRASH CAN!!
Works for Kids too….
Great idea... I might end up doing that!
Nope. My dogs would figure that out. especially Lily LOL
The sound of Rhys rolling the metal can around on the slate floor: priceless.
The garbage at my house will stay on top of the fridge

I keep my can in the laundry room, door shut. That solves it too
thay can rol the can around all thay want..as long as i'm not scopping up coffee grounds at 7am...LOL
I haven't had to go to the length of the hardware store lock. My metal has done just fine for 5 years no lab in the trash.

I guess I'm lucky, ours is just under the sink, Sammi has never gotten into it. Same with her treat's and food, they are just in a cupboard door that could easily be opened. Hmmm I'm going to go kiss her snout and tell her what a good girl she is, since she got in trouble for stealing a napkin off the table tonight
Hey, great idea!!! I have the same can, but have to keep a baby gate in front of it to keep them out. That gets annoying.
