Need some help with the garbage problem.

Hi, I have tried every trash can available, with lids, no good, with step on control, no good, motion sensor, no good.
Is there anything out there that works?
Pretty tired of putting garbage on the counter.
I have tried bitter apple on the trash, nope, he seems to like it.
Hope someone out there has an answer.
Thanks in advance.

We have a small broom closet in the kitchen and we keep our trash can in there. Do you have anything like that?

Mine is on the counter. Sorry.

I put a small trashcan under the kitchen sink until both of mine grew past that stage. Then reintroduced the regular can. It took one 'nope' and it hasn't been a problem since. The trash can wasn't a battle I was going to fight.

Although, I keep thinking I should go back to the small can under the sink. At least I took the trash out very often lol

I have always had my garbage can in the cabinet under the sink. It has nothing to do with dogs, though, I just hate seeing a garbage can in my kitchen. I also don't like using the floor space for a trash can. In the laundry room I have a little thing that hangs inside the door under that sink that is made to hold a plastic grocery bag for garbage.

I have three dogs and the oldest one(non GSD) is the only one that will go into the garbage. I use small plastic bags that hang on the upper cabinets or on the back door in the kitchen. I take them out every night and if I forget I have a mess(if they are on the door). She is 8 years old today, I got her when she was about 10 months, so I haven't had a garbage can for 7 years.

Always frustrating.
We have this one simplehuman® Rectangular 50-Liter Brushed Stainless Steel Step-On Trash Can - Bed Bath & Beyond&
and the dogs have never been in it.

management is the key. keep your trashcan as empty as possibe, especially when the dogs have unsupervised access to it.

keep dogs crated when you're away

find someone who knows how to use an e-collar correctly and set them up.

trash digging dogs are very frustrating and they can could eat something that could hurt or kill them.

Another vote for SimpleHuman. Love their products. We have this one. In the other house we had the trash that was built into a cabinet.
