simplehumanÂ® 13 gal. Semi-Round Plastic Can
We have a dog, about 40 lbs, who will go through the trash if given the chance. We recently bought this trash bin to to thwart her attempts. So far it has been working great we've had the bin for about 1 month or so. we found she moved it from the wall a few times with out tipping it. she has tipped it a bunch of times and occasionally she will tear up the bag of the that sticks out from under the lid and drags the trash can to our bed room. She knows she isn't suppose to do this but part of it she gets bored and does it.
We use to had the same issue with out recycling can getting tipped over but we purchased a shorter bin so she can sniff it and realize the newspaper isn't something she wants, with out spreading it every where.
I recommend this trash bin. It has taken a bit of abuse from our dog and is still thwarting her attempts no matter how hard she tries.

I love that this takes normal trashbags--not just the expensive simple human variety. My only issue is that the "lock" can be hard to tell if it's on or off, so if you step on the lever when it's locked, it feels like you might break something. Nothing HAS broken, but it makes me a little nervous.

Ended Dog's Snack Time
For the longest time we struggled with our dog getting into our lidded trash can. He would just stick his head in and graze whenever the urge hit him. I was content to stick with the trash can because I couldn't see spending money on a more expensive kind but my husband had had enough. He researched options and came across this one which we ended up purchasing. It opens quietly and closes gently. But most importantly, our dog hasn't had bite from it since we started using it. We did have a problem with the pedal breaking but it has a warranty and was replaced without any trouble.
