Does your dog eat stuff from your trash?

Mine does, we put our trash in a bag in the kitchen and throw them every day, its mostly cartons of milk and other stuff we've used to make the food, she always sticks her face in the bag and takes stuff out of it, takes them to the living room and chews them for apparently no reason at all...Its becoming a pain to pickup chewed botttles of chocolate milk from my sofa and I've shouted at her for doing so many many times but she never listens...she is a b***h, both literally and not...

My Shepherd mix goes in the garbage can so we put it up so she can't reach it.

I tried that but she would stand below the bag and just bark and cry all the time it was impossible to have some peace and quiet like that, I'm starting to believe that my dog is a female (transexual) reincarnation of Satan...

hehe. As much as annoying as it can be, sometimes ignoring them is the best thing. Yet again each dog is different. My shepherd mix will carry on and on until she gives up and realizes she not going to get her way.

You are a lucky person, but as these things go, your dogs probably do something else that is annoying you, If not, then WHAT"S YOUR SECRET?

I have a 4 months puddle called mark (Marky) he takes everything from the trash ... I have to close all the doors and let him closed in my room ... I asked the vet what I should do ... and he said it's he want to play so nothing to do with it =/

I think yours does it because its still small, when dogs are small they grow their teeth and want to chew on everything...Mine chewed (and totally messed up) all the plush toys I had as a little child...I didn't really want them, I had them as a decoration since I wasn't still playing with plushies but I had them on the shelf above my bed and she would climb my bed and go and catch them with her mouth and bring them down...and then they would experience plush toy hell...

My dog goes into the little garbage cans in the bathrooms and takes out kleenexes and tears them apart, I hate it too but the only way I keep her out of them, is to keep the doors closed.

Thankfully I don't have that problem...I would hate it if I had to pick up milk cartons with dirty kleenexes inside them, its just...yuck!

Well if I let him he would. I had taken the bag out of the container last week and put it aside to get the rest of the garbage in the house and I find him with his face in the bag. I couldn't believe it. I of course got him out of there but I need to make sure I put the bag where he can't get it. I seriously think my dog would eat just about anything if you let him.

No kidding, dog DO eat everything...mine has even eaten the stuff she PUKED! I know how disgusting and ridiculous it sounds but we were in the car and she puked (perhaps she got motion-sickness or whatever its called) and my dad said he'll clean it up when we reach our destination...well, let's just say he didn't have to clean anything up by the time we stopped...

well mine smells (and probably could eat if I let her) other dog's waste on the road...I think most dogs are like that. But closing the door won't help in my case, my dog has superpowers...seriously, she raises her front feet and freakin' opens the door...

Mine would be we have a tall tough trash can. Their favorite booty though is my wife's tissues. They'd chew up the whole box given the chance.
