yup...almost half a bag fits in the dish storage.....i use the setup that has the removable lid...nice and easy for travel...
Thanks everyone it seems like a waste to buy a specific storage container made for the food when I can get a trash can or bucket with a lid that will be more durable.
I bought a plastic container that has a foam gasket and a snap lock lid at Pets Mart.
It's smaller, about the size of a typical kitchen garbage container. I got it for food while traveling. It can only hold about 15 pounds and a scoop and 2 pans. The foam gasket works great. It keeps food for a long time. They sell them in larger sizes and they were reasonably priced.
A plain old trash can works too.
One of the old style aluminum trash cans. Been using the same one for over 30 years!
Due to being out in the Boonies, I buy my dog food in 10 bag lots. I store it in a clauset that is more or less mouse proof (mostly more). I then put the bag in a galvanised garbage can with metal lid which sits on a rolling platform to go to each kennel run. I've had rats chew up all types of plastic containers and yes I have put out rat bait, but I fear the dogs getting hold of some of it. Works for me for 23 years now,Bill
My dad had these, but his were made by Purina as a promotional thing I think. I remember them as a kid. Not sure what he did with them when he moved. They hung on the wall!
Metal can and lid/bungee straop, Vittle Vault or Avery food bag for the road depending on how long I'm gone.
