I have never seen those at my Walmart. What department are they in? Maybe I wasn't looking in the right place. I'd like a few of those!
The vittles vaults are so expensive. I love them, but everytime I'm about to buy one I chicken out at the last second
The vaults would drive me nuts, they are such a PITA to open and close. I just have no interest in spinning the little thing and having to set it in the hole just right to get it to spin back on. Things like that drive me nuts.
The picture above looks nice, but I am wondering if the lids just flip up or is there some kind of deterence? We store food inside the house, in the laundry room and the dogs have access to it. We have never ever had a rodent in the house, unless you count the hamsters I used to have as a kid at my parents house. Flame away, but for almost 30 years of dog ownership dog food in my family has ALWAYS been stored in a newly purchased small garbage can, the 13 gallon looking variety. Both of ours are top opening, the dogs can't get in them, and OMG but no we don't store the food in the bags either. Somehow, by some grace of god
the dogs have always managed to survive such neglect.
I do actually line one of the cans with a regular household trash bag, because it has a little gap at the bottom for, I don't know, drainage? I'm sure that's worse than the can itself by some peoples standards.
My son does like to help scoop the dogs food in the morning and he has a hard time with the top opening cans once the food goes down a little, he's only 2. So a side opening would be nice for his sake, but perhaps not the dogs who might help themselves. We go through food pretty fast here though with four big mouths to feed. One eats one food out of one can and goes through it in a month, and the other three dogs go through 35 lbs every 10 days or so fed out of the other can.
