- How do i keep my dog out of the bin?
My dog keeps going in the bin and spreads the contents over the kitchen floor. I need a dog proof bin. We must be on our 6th type of bin but he gets in every one. Unfortunately the bin has to go in the kitchen, where his bed is, and we dont have room for one of those in cupboard bins.
Any ideas as he has broken the bin and we need a new one.Posted 5 years agoporter_jamieSubscriber
i can leave food on the floor in the front room next to the dog (pizza or something) and go out of the house shopping or something for an hour and he will not touch it.
but, every now and then he decides to empty the food bin all over the floor. bizarre. and you can’t train him out of it if you don’t catch him at it.Posted 5 years agosomafunkSubscriber
A mate had a similar problem with bins and kitchen drawer handles/cupboard handles being opened and the contents emptied etc so he bought some naga chilli spray and sprayed it round the bin lid and kitchen unit handles, it worked after a few applications and now the dogs are very well behaved.Posted 5 years ago
Ah yes. Dogs in the bin. We had 2 black labs (both sadly passed away recently, although not a result of the bin!) who were fascinated by the kitchen bin. We put a baby-gate across the kitchen door area. One night, their dream came true and my daughter left the gate open. At last, what they had always waited for:

@davidjones has the answer, if you don’t know how to train the dog not to go in the bin get some help from someone who does.
The lazy answer is to take rubbish out to the external bin (I assume wheelie) a few times a day
FWIW perhaps we are lucky or our dog well trained, she doesn’t even dare touch a bin bag kept on the floor, she does go hunting any old sh1t outside on a walk mind.Posted 5 years ago
