It’s fun to place an order for a new lead or collar, lots of handmade dog toys to keep your dog active and stimulated, and all of the health supplements that our dogs require for our pets growing array of health conditions.
But, when that order arrives, do you know where you’ll put it all?
We’ve got some ideas for keeping your pet gear organized and easily accessible. These methods will ensure you’re not hunting for a lead when it’s time for a walk, or to easily grab a traffic leash when you’re answering the door. Best of all, you’ll never lose your dog’s favorite toy!
Organizing gear also helps out your pet sitters, dog walkers and family or friends who help with the care of your pets.
1 Designate a Drawer
One of the easiest ways to organize gear is to use a dresser storage tower that can be placed near your front door. This gives you plenty of access to grab your things on the way out the door. These drawers can easily hold your dog’s leads, treats, toys and other gear. Depending on how much you have, you may need a drawer for each dog or a full set for each dog. Whichever you choose, make sure you use tags to keep things labeled and easy to find.
2 Toy Cubbies for Pets
Organizing your favorite fun toys can be challenging when your dogs are dragging them out at all hours. But, we love these clever bins to organize toys for each of your dogs. These linen bins are easy to clean, easy to access and easy to close. If you have an especially clever dog, you may need to purchase plastic storage with lockable lids, but the point is that they are available!
