Does anyone have any ideas how to stop a dog from getting in the trash. I am at my wits end!!
These are the things I have tried:
1.The trash cans with the lids didn't help at all. We put the trash in a cabinet he got in it. He has scratched the cabinet door to get it open. We tried putting a chair up against the cabinet, he pushes the chair and gets in the trash.
2. I have tried using vinegar around the trash they say dogs can't stand the smell of vinegar doesn't bother mine. He gets in it.
3. I tried rubbing alcohol - doesn't bother him.
4. Started spraying him with a water bottle when I catch him, doesn't stop him.
Does anyone have any other suggestions. He is a well fed dog and somewhat overweight. Of course all the midnight garbage buffets don't help. You would think he was starving!! He also likes to counter surf. I hate to put the garbage bags on top of the counter and he has even gotten into that at times. So sick of coming home and finding trash from one end of the kitchen to the other. Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed. HELP!
