pet organization

As Franklin has accumulated more stuff, I’ve been working on finding ways to store items in a pretty way.

So far, so good. Here are a few little spots around the living room that are pup-friendly.




Right near the front door we have this little hook, found at Zara Home.

This has been his leash, harness, and coat hook. It’s simple, cute, and easy to use each time he needs to go out.




The chest near the front door also has a drawer with his brush and 30′ leash for dog park walks.




On the top of the chest, we have trays and bowls for both Mr. Lively and Franklin.

Franklin’s hammered bowl from Nate Berkus’ Target line houses extra baggies, treats, and clickers.




On the kitchen peninsula, we also have a cookie jar with his medications and other treats. This my favorite way to disguise dog items in a pretty way.




For dog toys, we have a wooden wine crate.

Truth be told, I have the cutest little french woven basket for his toys. But Franklin’s more fond of chewing the basket more than his toys… so I’m crossing my fingers that one day I’ll be able to use the basket instead of the wine crate.

And if you look closely, you’ll notice he’s put some marks on the edge of this bin as well.

Other than these items we have a big brass trunk in the hallway that houses extra food, shampoos, and his puppy coat.

We also have a binder that has all of his medical records which has proven to be really handy.

Hopefully some of these ideas might prove to be useful for others with pet products scattered about the house.

    much cleaner than Oliver’s storage! he pulls his toys out of the box every chance he gets!

    Lol! Franklin is big on taking them out and playing with them too. Luckily he doesn’t have too many, so pick up isn’t usually too bad.

    Thanks! I hope you borrow them for your own home!

    Aw, puppy toys! We use a plastic bin to hold our puppy’s toys. It’s not pretty, but it works for now. We also keep a binder with all her medical records by the front door so we can grab it in a hurry when we need it.
