I currently have a litterbox that I removed the cover from for our cats. Bob seems to be doing ok with that, but the dogs are now constantly cruising the boxes looking for snacks. It usually isn’t a problem since I scoop 4x per day, but every once in a while they score a jackpot. We need to keep the dogs out of the boxes and I’ve been considering one of these:
Does anyone have any experience with a tripod using one?
Good question! We’ve seen some smart litterbox hacks for tripawds around here, but none specifically come to mind that have a cover.

Looks like a good idea in theory! I do not have any experience with the box. We always use uncovered boxes, but we do not have dogs looking for snacks here😉
Did you read the reviews? The lid just sits on top. Will your dogs knock it off? I can’t see what the inside looks like , will Bob be able to turn around in it comfortably? Measure what he uses now and make sure it will be at least the same size. Sorry I can’t be of more help. I would read reviews on it and go somewhere else and read more reviews . You will have a better idea what people think of it.
If you do decide to try it let us know.
Give Bob a chin & ear scratch for us!

I was wondering if you did end up giving the booda dome a try? I was looking into it a while back because the steps going up into it looked like a good idea, but I ended up going with a different one due to cost, and just used a flat cat scratcher board that we already had as a non-slip ramp up into the one I got, which seemed to work well for my hind-leg amputee kitty. Hope your kitty is doing well and you found a solution 🙂
