In my previous post some people asked what we did for dog-proof litter box. You just need a large storage bin, simple litter box, and some sharp knife. After we made this, I saw online that many other people came up with this:) Anyone has a different suggestion? Right now it works great!!!! :)
Cut a hole in one side of the bin. Insert litter box towards the other side and that's it :)

    My only problem is that the chihuahua can get through that hole. Any comments on this?

    I am just waiting for my kitten which I have never had one before I have a cockapoo & am just worried that she could get into the litter box, I haven't bought anything yet for the kitten,what would suggest,, I have a spare plastic storage box with a lid, do I make an entrance in one end just big enough so my cockapoo can't get into it ???????

    top entry boxes are great too. although a small dog could just jump up on it and climb in as well. My german shepherd and black lab no longer get "kitty treats" since I changed to the top entry box. Simple enough to cut a whole in a larger plastic tote with lid. Lay a piece of scrap rug on the lid to catch litter trails.

    Been doing this for years and have 2 tips: 1)Cut the hole toward the top of the box, so even more of the cats litter will get left in the box (and small dogs can't climb in). 2) Just dump the litter straight in the rubbermaid tub, works especially well if you use scoop-able litter or if you have multiple cats.
