Need water bucket ideas for the constuctionally impaired

Claus has developed an obsession with the water bucket. He is not content until he has flipped it upside down and done Lord knows what to it. I have managed to keep it to the kennel fence with a locking threaded snap onto the bail of the bucket. I thought I had fastened the body of the bucket tight enough to the side with the extra thick rubber bungee. Claus apparently has developed close to prehensile paws, and somehow removes this. I do need to be able to empty and clean the bucket occasionally so welding it to the side is impractical. The bucket is a nice thick stainless steel, so he can't eat it.[-o< why he can't be like his sister and happy destroying the locust wood stump I put in the kennel for them I don't know.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Re: Need water bucket ideas for the constuctionally impaired

a concrete bucket would be nice. I don't have a convenient water faucet near the kennel, and I wonder if I would not find him with his tongue stuck to it in cold weather. I wonder how he hasn't stuck his tongue to the bucket yet.

Re: Need water bucket ideas for the constuctionally impaired

If there was not so much snow around my buckets I would take a pic. What I did was place the curved decorative concrete blocks around my buckets creating a hole for the bucket to slide into and then I secure the bucket handle to the fence. One day I hope to use mortar to hold them together......

For the dogs here that are obsessed with the buckets, they leave them alone......my buckets are the heated ones and in the warm weather the cord fits inside the bottom and in the winter I run them through PVC and under the fence....have not had an issue with the dogs destroying them since I made the blocks around them.

things needed.
1.small plastic trash can(like from the dollar store or something). Easier to manipulate than a 5 gallon bucket when time comes to pop the bowl out.
2. salad or mixing bowl that you or your significant other are not attatched too. Big enough hold a significant supply of water, but that will also fit down into the trash can.
3. 50 lb. of qiukcrete.

take the bowl and place it in the bottom of the trash can( make sure it sets well in the bottom), with the open side of the bowl facing down.
mix the concrete fairly wet.
pour into the can on top of the bowl, allow to cure, 24 hours is always good.
After curing, pop the bowl out of the can, sometimes this can be a pain, but it can be done.
Then you have a bullet proof bowl, and very inexpensive, yes its heavy, but it works. I usually keep a scrub brush laying around too properly clean as needed.
Now, I have had bulldogs that would attack these as well, not to many other breeds though, if this behavior still continues, get the bowl out of there asap, this is a teeth wrecker for sure.
GOOD LUCK.

Re: Need water bucket ideas for the constuctionally impaired

We had the same problem with a couple dogs. They would eat hard plastic buckets, rip the handles out and puncture small galvanized or stainless buckets. We went to galvanized livestock tanks similar to these http://www.barnworld.com/sa/c/galvan...tock_tanks.htm

Even full of water some of our dogs drag them around but at least they don't eat them or dump them.
