Angry Litter tray puppy

Hi just wonder if anyone can help, my border collie pup has a new thing.. eating the cats mess out of the litter tray.
now my malamute got over this a while ago, we've moved the tray so the pups couldn't get to it, but seems the collie is still slim enough to get to the litter and has just now had a messy feast... not best pleased with him.

Anyone have any ideas on stopping him from doing this!? I don't think its fair the cats having to be in a different room as i'm trying to get the pups used to having them around. PLEASE HELP!

hi...i had this prob when ruby was a pup, eating the litter and poop out of baileys tray...i solved this by buying a covered litter tray...i think it was about £20 so not cheap, but worth it. it looks like a small plastic pet carrier but has a vent ontop and a 'cat flap' at one end...bailey only took a short while to get used to it and ruby lost intrest...problem solved! good luck...let us know how you get on.

Oh that is disgusting.
What worked for us was using a hooded litter box. I've even seen homemade litter boxes that are actually storage boxes with a hole cut in the top so kitty has to jump in and out, but doggy can't poke his nose in.

My previous cat was an indoor/outdoor cat. So she was locked in the laundry at night with her litter box & went outside in the day time. If I forgot to empty the litter or close the door the dog used to get to it.
The cat I have now is an indoor only cat & I have her litter tray in the bathtub. We no longer use it & its an old bath so rather deep. Blossom usually goes early morning & I can usually smell it & empty it straight away. Tilba & Sooty haven't tried to get to it or haven't had the chance.

Oh yes, the old litter box crunchies. Having always had indoor cats, I have had to deal with this problem more than once. For the most part I don't even notice it until the dog decides to kiss me after a special snack, major yuck and near puke, lol.

Anyhow, the litter boxes are kept in the service room part of the basement where I don't have to smell them other than the daily cleaning and being out of my smell reach, I don't have to do this more than once a day. I have learned the hard way, aka, kitty poo breath, to put a childs gate up into this room. The cats can easily jump it and so far it's keeping the dogs out.

Don't ask me why, but some dogs can not resist the litter box crunchies the same way some dogs can't help but roll in any dead thing they can find. Right now both my dogs always seem to find what ever dead thing the barn cats leave and I'm not sure what is worse, litter box crunchie breath or dead thing fur, lmao.

oh good luck! I had this problem with oats...but not cat litter, rabbit litter! she loves to eat my rabbits business and like skunkstripe said...disgusting! I had a simple solution though...shutting the cage when the rabbit is out, but it means i have to keep an eye incase he wants back in. If oats, however, ate any droppings that the rabbit left outside his cage, i would remove it from her mouth, tell her a firm no, and take her away from the cage. She doesnt seem to bother much now.

I have a hooded litter tray and have it placed so that the entrance faces the wall with a cat sized gap that Loki can't get round.

Well the cats got the nerve to come into our back yard while Lucy was out! We haven't had anything to clean up since! She always runs out to that spot with high hopes every morning though!
