There’s no mistaking what goes in here! Stencils and spray paint make a poop patrol bucket that’s fun, quick to make and ready for action.
Choose a container that’s appropriately sized for the number of furry ‘children’ you have. We used a six-gallon galvanized trashcan but a five-gallon plastic paint bucket works just as well.
Make sure the container has a locking lid to contain odors and avoid spills. You can purchase scented trash bags or simply tuck the bucket a safe distance away from the house.
If you have Chihuahuas instead of Great Danes, simply use a smaller container and adjust the setting on your printer to resize our stencils.
