Jake has a habit of going threw the trash. I luckly stop him before he fully gets into it, but later he trys again. I tell him no trash can again and again but nothing is getting threw to him! Any suggestings on how to teach him no?

Don't know if it is possible, but my trash can is in a cabinet. Oy could put it in a room with a closed door or a can with a tight lid. Hope something helps here

Have you tried to maybe spray the outside of the trash can/bag with sour apple spray? You can buy it at your local pet store and after a few licks of that I don't think he'll want to get into it again. its meant to be spray on stuff you don't want them to chew on, so I guess the trash would be under that catagory. Good luck.wave

If I can go by my Jody's personality, there is no such thing as "no". She is completely compulsive and doesn't seem to want to stop herself when we tell her "no" about anything she wants to do.
We love her anyway, but it does get old sometimes. Especially the barking.

Buy a big silver trash can with a step on lid opener. It has an inside plastic can so you can put the top ends of the bag between the silver can and the plastic can on the inside. It keeps the trash from smelling and closes tightly. It is also tall, too tall for my short little babies. When cousin Ella, big dog, comes over, she does not touch the trash can and she LOVES trash. This can may cost alot, but it is worth it.

I am a trash eater myself. My mommie had to buy a metal trash can with the step opener like Oscar and Callie are talking about.
It sure keeps me out of the trash. way to go

I have the same problem. After a year ive found that the best solution is hiding the trash can under a cabinet or perhaps on an elevated surface.
