He could eat food that could make him ill, not to mention other things like aluminum foil.  If he is outside, make sure that the garbage cans are secure enough where he won’t be able to get into them. Get cans with a twist locking lid used to deter bears. Keep the lids on tight and keep the cans out of your dog’s sight it possible. Consider different sprays that are available at pet stores which will deter your dog from going near the cans. There’s  cayenne pepper and powders like bitter alum. Don’t depend on these sprays alone. It is very important that you make sure that your dog cannot get in your garbage at all.

Keep your dog properly exercised. Have him fetch his dog toys on a regular basis. This will prevent a lot of bad behavior. A dog that is under exercised and under stimulated will be more likely to act out in destructive ways.
