For many of us who have pets, they are an important part of the family and are pampered in their own unique way. For me, since I don’t have any children, my dog probably gets a bit more attention & is spoiled rotten. I try to incorporate her dog products into stylish pet decor with streamlined organization that keeps all her essentials in one place.
I mean com’on… look at this face!!
When trying to incorporate your pet’s things into your home decor I suggest creating one particular area that everything will be stored. The things that are going to be out in the open, like the food and water bowl, look to find a similar style that will blend into the rest of your home. In our new house, Dexie’s things are right off the entryway. This is where we happen to have a custom built-in cabinet and it allows for easy access to any necessities before or after a walk.
On top of the built-in cabinets I utilized some glass containers to store her treats in a wood tray along with a few additional decor elements and a small trinket tray for our house keys. This is way more functional than having a bunch of random treat bags laying around.

Inside the cabinet is where I store any of Dexie’s health supplies (i.e. flea & tick medicine, ear wash, etc), brushes, poo bags, dog food, pet costumes and extra treats. Everything has a home whether it’s in a decorative box, bin or basket. Just because it’s inside a cabinet doesn’t mean it should still be a mess!

As for the food and water bowls, these have actually moved about 4-5 times as the one flaw my dog does have is that she is a HORRIBLE water drinker. She makes a mess! It started off in the bathroom but then it was just in the way and who wants to sit on the toilet with their toes wet from dog water… it just wasn’t working. Thankfully, with the help of this galvanized boot tray from Target, I moved her dishes out into the entryway and then purchased this set of dog bowls and bone stand from Pottery Barn so it looked pretty sitting out. Now I’m happy!
The rest of Dexie’s “doggie space” is devoted to her leashes and toys. A few years ago I had grabbed these rod iron letter hooks from One Kings Lane and placed them here in the entryway to hold her leashes and collar. This has turned out to be really helpful in not just throwing them down anywhere, but rather they have a strategic home. I just added the bench from TJMaxx for a place to put on our shoes before we go for our 2-3 daily walks.
Underneath the bench is a basket with some of Dexie’s toys. She has a few of these baskets around the house thanks to Barkbox!
I hope you enjoyed our little home tour of Dexie’s doggie supplies! I love that we have a little dedicated area for all her things and it’s aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
