To keep your kitchen clean, a garbage can is always necessary and indeed, there are many brands on the market to choose. However, when it’s about dog-proof, there are not many options left.

It’s upset to find your kitchen gets messed up by a tipped over garbage can and a guilty dog in the vicinity every time you go home. How to deal with this long-term problem?

In this article, I will introduce some most practical dog proof garbage cans. By comparison, hopefully, you can find the one which meets your own requirement.

Features A Reliable Dog Proof Garbage Can Should Contain

Sturdy: Sturdy enough that it makes it hard enough for your puppy to chew through to get the contents inside or damage it easily.

Stay-put lid: The garbage can’s lid should keep closed even if it’s tipped over by a naughty dog.

Weighty: If you have a large dog, then, a weighty garbage can is supposed to be needed. The heavier it is, the harder it will be for the dog to tip it over.

Option 1 Aicool Smart Trash Can

This is a 13-gallon sensible eco living trash can made of stainless steel which is easy to clean, sturdy, and fingerprint-proof. It has an intelligent sensor which detects anyone approaching and tells whether it’s a human or an animal and in this way, it decides whether to open the lids or not. You just need to stand approximately 15 to 20cm away from the trash can and wave your hand to and it will respond without touching it.

Moreover, Aicool Smart Trah Can supports remote App control, automatic bagging and offers environmentally friendly liners in high quality.

Price: 299 dollars

Option 2 Simplehuman Butterfly Trash Can

This trash can is in 45 liters / 12.5 gallons and is one of the best choices for dog owners.

Based on the butterfly design, the can’s lids are divided into 2 parts, one on the left and the other on the right. Once you step on the pedal the lids will open and after release it, they close slowly.

Even if your dog is smart enough and figure out how it works, the way the lids are design with the butterfly mechanism makes it impossible for your dog to put its heads inside and get the garbage there.

Another practical feature of Simplehuman Butterfly Trash Can is its narrow design. The design keeps the can slim to fit any places at your home while it retains the 45L impressive capacity.

Option 3 Von Haus Stainless Steel Bin

Similar to Aicool, Von Haus is also a dog proof garbage can with a sensor. But it’s much larger in the size of 50L. It’s made of stainless steel and is available in a cream, black, or brushed finish. An LED sensor at the front of the lid detects nearby movements to open the lid and after 5 seconds of inactivity, the lid will be closed automatically.

Meanwhile, manual operation is also supported because there are opening and closing buttons on either side of the sensor.

The bin is 37cm wide, 30cm deep and 73 cm high which makes it very difficult for your dog to knock it over.

Option 4 Simplehuman Dog Proof Garbage Can with A Locking Lid

The reason why I introduce this trash can is because of the price and design. The can comes in 4 different colors – black, grey, stone, and brown.

To prevent dogs from having access to the garbage inside, the can has a lock at the front of the lid. Only when you pull the lock out, can you step on the pedal to open the can or lift the lid all the way up with your own hand. If you step to open the lid, it will close after you lift off your foot. And if you use your hand to lift the lid, the can will stay open.

The trash can is 50 liter / 13 gallon.
