I found mine on Craigslist. Had grape juice in it. $20 in Garland. Just check for your area.

Not really Tomball/Conroe, but I used to buy them for various things around the ranch and also to hide in for SAR dog training. There was a guy along Hwy 69 between Kountz & Lumberton that sold clean barrels. There is another one just south of Lufkin on Hwy 69. The ones I have are plastic - don't know if you want metal or plastic, but last I saw, he had both kinds. Just tell them you want clean ones that haven't had fertilizer, etc. in them.

Check with your local car washes and get them from them. They only contain soap.

Mine was soft drink concentrate and smell like grape. Took weeks to get it where I thought the dog could stand it. But for sure drink syrup.

Go to your local Co-op, they always have some and they are tagged for their uses

If you have a chewer, be sure to trim the door with some metal, this is just the metal for the edge of a roofline on a house that is just flattened down & bolted on with short bolts & acorn nuts on the inside, then I painted the trim blue to match the barrel. I built this one for Bleu when he was 6 months old, a year & a half later, he hasn't torn it up yet. He has chewed on the wood frame at the bottom but not enough to have done any harm.
