I've got to agree here. Training a dog not to get in the trash is a first step, but it will not work on every dog. It has worked for mine, but I consider myself mostly lucky. I have had 3 Dobermans, and none of them got in the trash. I have a flip top can and can put bones on the top of a pile of garbage and they would not dream of getting into it..........training or luck? BOTH!!CoAl-s-Mom said:Some dogs with all training in world will still get in the trash. Securing the trash can is the best option for this.
OTOH, an open trash can with used kleenex (or worse) in it is fair game!
