A trash can?  YES, we are recommending a specific trashcan!

Dogs love to get in to the trash, that is a universal truth.  For our home (and pack of boxers) we searched and searched and finally came across this great rectangular kitchen trashcan made by Simplehuman.

What makes it so special?  The lid.  When closed the lid sits completely recessed in a frame – there is nothing for a dog to hook a nose or paw on to open.  Believe me, Nitro has given it his best over and over again, and has finally learned to settle for licking the edges…

While this may seem a bit pricey, you get what you pay for.  Nice stainless steel construction, and completely dog-proof!
