Dog Food Storage

Thursday, September 19, 2013

 Yup, we were those people that had our big bag of dog food sitting out in the open allowing our pup to help himself, making dinner & snack time whenever he wanted.  
I knew we needed an airtight container and loved all the cute jars & canisters that people use for dog storage.  But having a big dog meant I needed a large container and for some reason cute ones are hard to find.  I bought this trash can from Walmart.  The touch lid is great for quick & easy opening & closing.  And I found a scoop that is the perfect serving size for Rawley's meals.
 
With most of my organization I love hidden storage.  In a small home it allows for everyday items to be hidden in plain sight and of course I'm a sucker for baskets.  When I came across this woven hamper in the laundry aisle at Target I knew it would be a great way to conceal our dog food storage bin along with Rawley's other treats & toys.
Now dinner & snack time look more like this!
 

What do you use for your pet food storage?

  1. I bought a big aluminum garbage can from the hardware store to store food for our big dogs!

  2. And Rawley is wondering why he got the raw end of this deal! We use the 5 gallon air tight buckets from Lowe's for our dog food - and we store it in the garage.

    1. Yup, Rawley's still pouting! I'm so envious of a garage! I'll have to check out those buckets from Lowe's ~ are they clear, plastic, galvanized etc?

    2. They are gray with a gray lid - but they also have the Lowe's logo. Could be spray painted or given a good decoupage treatment!

  3. Great idea! We used the same thing, but I got so tired of looking at it/tripping over it in our kitchen that we decided to put it on a shelf in the garage, right next to the door. The kids can still reach it (it's actually at a perfect height!), so it's a win-win in my book!

  4. This is awesome! We have a large dog, therefore the cute containers from Ballard don't fit the whole bag of dog food and I don't want to store the open bag of dog food somewhere else, etc. We also have a very small home. Right now our dog food is in a rubbermaid bin on top of the dryer, which happens to be in our kitchen. It's all kinds of awesome ;) I am inspired, however, and will see if I can find something *cute* to put on top of the dryer instead.

  5. We use the large white lidded trash bin from Ikea found here: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10218923/#/60045656

    We love it so much that we bought a second one to use as a recycling container right outside our back door.

    Loving your blog and so glad I discovered it this morning.
