BEST dog organization ideas to keep your home tidy

Here I’ve put together lots of organization ideas for dogs: how to store toys, dog food, leash, and other things. These tips are especially helpful if you have more than one dog. Use these tips to keep your home tidy!

Dog leash storage ideas

If your dog’s leashes and collars lie everywhere, it’s time to think about a special walking station. It’s best to put it close to the exit.

If you hang a shelf or locker, you can store other things you might need outdoors, such as poop bags, travel water bowls, bug spray, etc. You can also leave a clicker or other training equipment here, as well as outdoor toys and some of the treats you use at training sessions.

Here are some ideas for making a dog walking or leash station:

  • 🌟At a minimum, you can hang hooks for collars and leashes.

Organizing dog toys

Once you’ve dealt with storing things for walks, it’s time to think about how to store toys. My advice is not to give your pet all the toys at once. It’s better to keep a couple of toys for daily use and change them periodically to keep your dog interested. 

You should also have some special toys for training and the crate.

Dog food organization ideas

Finally, we got to the kitchen. Here we need to set up a comfortable food station. I opted for a ready-made food station with retractable food bowls:

When we had a regular food bowl, my Frank constantly moved it all over the kitchen and made a mess on the floor. But these retractable bowls solve that problem.

And there’s a big compartment for food storage right above the bowls. And you can store training treats on the shelf above.

If you don’t have room for such a large food station, consider other options for placing dog bowls that will help keep things organized:

Dog grooming storage ideas

Finally, we need to find a place to store dog grooming supplies such as combs, shampoos, nail clippers, ear cleaners, paw wipes, etc.

Where can you store dog grooming supplies?
