Three years ago, I rescued a golden retriever named Molly. Though she is really adorable, she is an aggressive chewer and at 100+ lbs, obviously loves to eat! Most of us know when it is time to stop eating and take home the doggie bag, but not Molly. Having tried to cut back on her food a bit to improve her overall weight, I quickly learned that I could no longer leave the dog food bag on the floor in the pantry as someone would eat until her heart was content.
So, I searched and searched for the right container to solve my dilemma with very little luck. I had checked out the local pet stores, but they didn’t offer containers large enough to store a 15 – 20 lb bag of dog food. The ones I did find were not covered and were too bulky for the area I wanted to store the food in. I came across this utility bin that was just the solution to hold a 20 lb bag of food while keeping it fresh. The latches were an added bonus to ensure someone couldn’t stick her paw in the cookie jar.
