    I keep Charlie's food in a big tupperware-like tub. He has, of course, figured out how to get the lid off and get himself a bite to eat whenever he feels like it. Then it sits there with the lid off for hours until I notice it. I put that darn lid back on so many times that I'm kind of over it and have just been leaving it off and letting him "graze" the past few days. Will it get stale? Is there any problem with this? If so, any suggestions for something I can keep his food in that he can't get into? That dog is like Houdini.

    Get an air-tight container like this. And yes, Kibble can go stale.

    Thanks. I'll give it a try. But I just about guarantee Charlie will find a way to get it open. He got the sprayer unscrewed from the hose, and then got the hose unscrewed from the faucet. He now drags the hose (which is ruined with teeth-holes) around the yard all day, having the most wonderful time.

    I find them hard to open from time to time, especially after my husband has closed them. Lol. I hope it works! Good luck.

    I keep mine in the pantry closet so they can't get to it.
