Chemist and physician here. There are a couple things worth clarifying here before anyone gets too upset.

First, let's talk about what going "rancid" is. Rancidification is a chemical reaction where an oil is oxidized. More specifically, an unsaturated oil like olive oil reacts with an oxygen molecule and an oxygen atom is added.

The word rancid sounds bad, but there is nothing unhealthy about rancid oils. Rancid oils tend to be noticeable as an off flavor, but that's it. Some quack doctors like Andrew Weil publish blog posts saying rancid oils are dangerous but that's just clickbait journalism, not science. Here is a citation from a 2015 scientific article that discusses the safety of rancid oils.:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/...MC4681158/

Spoiler alert: they are safe.

Oils go rancid when exposed to air and light. There is nothing about this container that is going to accelerate the process unless you store it in direct sunlight. Even if you did, the worst that would happen is that there would be a slight change in flavor.

TLDR: do NOT worry about dog food going rancid.

Or option 3 (what I do), use a 15 gallon can liner and discard the liner between each new bag.

Hey, the bags that your pet's food comes in are specially made to protect the food. Keep it in the original bag.

Good price. Alltime low per CCC. Made by IRIS. I paid $22 for the IRIS branded one of about the same size.

Can liners typically won't be food grade plastic, but I guess if you can find ones which are.

The Iris containers are junk. They dont use enough plastic so they are very weak. And the plastic seems to be especially brittle. I tried to get one from Amazon twice and neither survived Amazon's poor packaging.

I disagree. I have used these for years, for dog food, cat food, bird seed, and duck food and have always been extremely pleased. I keep them on my screened porch outside, and have never had any issues with them. Keeps all bugs out, too. Well worth the $12.

Great container, had since 2016 bought for $17. Quality enough for my 2 year old to push around and play with it. May have to reglue seal once. Havent had any rancid food issues, have not cleaned once. Feed victor gain free, rated 5 on dog food advisor. holds a 40lb bag with plenty of room for cup, or left over food

Looks like a good deal. I have a plastic container that I use for 20 lb bags of bird seed that is falling apart. Hopefully this will hold up better.

If you don't do one of these things, fat deposits build up on the plastic walls and go rancid. As you add new food, the already rancid fats will cause newly added food to go rancid much more quickly than normal, and you'll be feeding your pet rancid food.
