    SmileFinally a Dog Proof Trash Can !!

    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!!


    PRICELESS





    Works for Kids too….

    The sound of Rhys rolling the metal can around on the slate floor: priceless.

    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.
