Default Dog Organization

What do you do with all your dog's crap? LOL

A little over a year ago now, I started getting more organized. His stuff used to be just... everywhere.

I got rid of some stuff, sold others, etc, to 'clean up' a bit last year.

Here's what I have. Can you tell a spoiled rotten dog lives here?

Anyway, I'm still living at home, and I have my own back area of the house (living space, bathroom, then my bedroom).

So, he's pretty much taken over my closet space.


I recently started hanging his collars on the rack, and harnesses. I found it easier to keep track of, see, etc. You can also see some of his coats hanging up. MY part of the closet still needs work (that white shelf thing hanging up is sooo messy and unorganized. My next project).


That whole plastic storage bin thing is his. Top drawer is bully sticks, chews, etc. Second drawer is bandanas and costumes. Third drawer is just whatever else random stuff I have (Dremel, etc). Oh and that little basket on the bottom holds his holiday shirts, sweaters, etc that I have. I only put it out like that for the picture, lol.


This is on the back of my closet door right now. I tend to shove things in there, so again, kind of needs to be cleaned out. Just have some sample food bags in there, shampoo, brush, teeth stuff, etc. I got that thing for really cheap (like $4 or something) -- good purchase though! It helps me keep stuff off the ground, counters, etc.


Our collar collection. Believe it or not, it got less! I sold a few collars, gave some away, etc, so this is what we're down to. To be honest, he doesn't wear like 75% of them. The main one he wears is the Paco, and the Kong collars for when I know he's going to get really wet/dirty/etc. The two personalized black leather collars with his name on them don't fit right - and since they're personalized, well, not really sell-able or give-away-able, LOL, so they just stay sitting pretty.


This is hanging up right next to my closet door, in my bedroom again. Got this little thing for really cheap too (the Woof sign), and again, so worth it. This is our stuff we grab a lot, so I keep it out. His ezydog harness, Puppia harness, Kong leash, and two coats.


This is right outside of my bedroom door. We have a bar in my back room and there's a wine cooler/fridge thing and that's what this stuff is sitting on top of. It's easy access, food (his food bowl is right underneath this), and meds (heartworm, etc), and treats.


Then there's his toy chest.... yes personalized, LOL. My mom got it for a Christmas present last year for me. I love it. Looks good, and easy to throw toys, bones, etc so they're not laying all over my floor. It's in my bedroom under my TV.

So yup, there's all of our crap! I'm limited space in the house, so that's why it ends up all in my bedroom and closet, LOL, once I have my own place, I'm sure I'll have another organizational method.

I love the toy chest...we need a toy chest...we have a big basket by the hearth that all their toys go into but a toy chest would be much cuter.

I think Jackson has as many collars as all my dogs (including Temporary) combined... :P

But outside of that...yeah...I have a LOT of dog stuff...a lot...really a lot...I mean we just got a 21ft^3 chest freezer just for the dogs...

I believe it. And like I said, the sad thing is... he really doesn't wear most of them. I have no desire to add any more fabric-type collars. I've definitely turned into a leather collar gal, and then having a few plain-ish sporty nylon collars (like, I love the Kong collars. Super plain but still cute, look good on him, and stand up to a lot of gettin' dirty, LOL)

Yeah it helps that I haven't gone down the leather collar rabbit hole...yet lol. I was on the brink with Mira and then won a pair of gorgeous NearlyNakedNeckwear collars for her that are perfect and so very kind to her coat plus still have a soy webbing one for swimming that dries fast so I think we've backed away from the edge...for now...

I have a basket by the door with her leash, harness, slip leads, and poop bags. Next to it are flashlights for night walks, and a lint brush for when I head out the door to work. (See her secret santa slip lead in the pile?)


In the closet is a rubbermaid box with all her extras--jackets, leashes, food dishes, etc. (You can see her beautiful coat from last year's secret santa sticking out! She got to wear it last week when it was FREEZING cold!)


In the family room is her basket o' toys, next to the tv.


In the pantry on the bottom is another rubbermaid box with her food.


Treats are in another cabinet.

And other than that I have a toy basic in the livingroom and I leave cups of Fromm around the house at doorways and things for training.

Wowee! Jackson has a lot of stuff!

Organization? What is this "organization" you speak of? Gypsy's crap is everywhere. We try to put her toys into a basket sometimes, but she disapproves. There's a dog toy - or six - in every room of the house.

We just moved and I found 4 medium moving boxes of dog stuff not counting the stuff we kept out as "essentials". I have issues. We'll be redoing our organization and maybe removing some of the excess since our house is smaller.

I don't know where my photos are but I used to have a couple drawers in the garage and a big coat rack in the guest bathroom.

Well, we have this...


And then, it's just...everywhere :/ lol

Also, I refuse to inventory my things, then I will just think about how much money I would have if I didn't buy ANY OF IT!

I kind of have stuff everywhere, but it's all contained to bins for the most part so it doesn't seem so chaotic lol.

This is where the bulk of my junk is contained - treats, nail trimmers, dental stuff, extra collars, Halloween costumes...


Canvas tote kept on the bookcase upstairs. Mostly shampoos as you can see LOL. Brushes and a billion bandanas.


Cupboard above pantry. Contains my dad's Beggin Strip stash, medications and frequently used treats.


Our stash of Trader Joes treats in the back


We keep bins of their food out in the garage, but we are too lazy to go out there every time we feed the dogs, so we keep a smaller supply on the counter next to the fridge. Bin on bottom is Juno's, bin on top is Lucy's, and Ziploc bag is Happy's.


And finally.... our first aid/health care stuff. Heartgard, thermometer, bandaging supplies, stethoscope etc.


Their leashes are just hung on hooks with our jackets. And... I think that's about everything... other than the toy box lol.
