    The best idea is to get a heavy duty trash can that is too big for the dogs to knock over. You can purchase them at Lowes or Home Depot. Don't spray anything on your trash that could be toxic to may end up killing one of them by accident.

    Buy trash cans with locking lids to put the bags in.

    And start getting tough with the pound. Keep calling them repeatedly and if they still don't answer call the humane society.

    hot peppers 99% of dogs cant stand them and hot source , put the peppers in there break them open so the can smell it and the seeds are out if they do eat it, and pour hot souse on any meat or paper that touched the meat. it wont hurt the dogs, even though they might think it will, and after 1 or 2 times they wont come back. but there are a few rare dogs hot there that do lick the sot stuff lol

  • Make him your dog. Be sure to spay and neuter ever if they're not your so it won't get worse.
