securing kitchen cabinets

Can anyone recommend a dog-proof kitchen cabinet lock, particularly for cabinets where there are 2 doors opening from the middle?

The plastic baby locks look like a decent design, but I have heard that the plastic is flimsy and it looks like it could be easily chewed off by a determined and bored dog.

Thanks!

You can do a magnetic lock, but that can be kind of a PITA.

I have a few friends that have a Great Dane who likes to get into cupboards they tie them closed, but that could be a pain. If it is just one double door cupboard what about a small metal slider lock just screws in, might look the greatest but would do the job.

What about the plastic locks that are inside the cabinet? Again, not convenient to open easily but can't be chewed off.

Like this one:

Like this one:
I thought that's what he was talking about, is there another plastic kind? There's just enough room with the cabinet partially open like in the picture that a really determined dog could probably stick their nose in and chew at the plastic, but if the OP was referring to some other kind of plastic lock, the one you posted would probably be the best and easiest solution.

I assumed they meant the kind that goes around the knobs of a cabinet. Like this:


After I posted it I thought that if the dog already knew to open the cabinets then yes, a determined one could snap those easily.

How is he opening them? If he is pulling on the nob/handle just remove it. Have you caught him in the act?

I had these for 8 years and never had a problem. Used them for all 3 dogs none of my dogs ever showed an intrest in getting in the cabinets.
