Dog Food Storage Ideas

I decided it was time to build her something that would prevent these messes and also store her dog food. I sketched up some plans and came up with this DIY dog food stand with storage underneath. It keeps her water and food dishes from being tossed around, and I can store a whole bag of dog food in it. I built it to fit a 10 gallon storage tub, so this is definitely a project for big dogs. Be sure to download the printable plans for the materials and cut list.

Your dog food can go bad if you spend a lot of time outdoors. As a precaution, it’s always good to keep it at cool temperatures. Of course, if you’re camping or outdoors in general, this can be difficult. That’s why the Petpac is a great choice for active dog owners who like to take their pets on their adventures. Your dog food will always be fresh– plus, the container comes in a ton of patterns! What could be better?

The perfect way to keep my lab, Lilly, entertained for an hour! Unlike a lot of kong stuffing recipes which use treats and fattening foods, the bulk of this kong is dog food taken from her dinner to keep her athletic figure. I use her dog food mixed with some non-fat greek yogurt and unsweetened applesauce and then top it off with pumpkin puree. Pop it in the freezer for several hours and you will have a wonderful food enrichment tool – and an hour of sanity during puppy hood. by mollie

Dog Food Storage Ideas

Before I tell you how I made my dog food storage bin, I have to take you back several years.  It was Christmas time and my firm was receiving lots of client gifts, which included a lot of food deliveries.  One client sent some yummy popcorn, that came in a large, round, gold tin.  When it was empty, someone was about to throw out the tin, but I saved it in the nick of time.  In that moment, I had no idea what I would do with it.  After getting home, however, I realized it would be a nice way to store Titan’s food.  It stayed the original gold color until this past weekend.  Now, it is orange and fabulous.   Read on to learn how to make your own.  This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.  Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

We used to use an elevated wooden thing (? sorry, brain NOT engaged this a.m.) that contained both the food & water bowls. Alas, it would get so gross from food slobber and the water would run off of it and get under the lip of the water bowl… Therefore, as a friendly warning – I would ensure that the dog food is contained with its own lid so that if water does drip down it doesn’t get into the food… (ewwww!) and you may want to either use polyurethane over your wood, veneer it with something waterPROOF, and/or use a laminate or acrylic lid/top – for easier cleaning.

HELLO THERE!  Today I am popping into show you what is one of my absolute favorite projects and it was so, so easy.  As you know, we have been working on our kitchen makeover, and I knew it wouldn’t be complete without a project focused on our sweet dog, Titan.  So, I created a pretty dog food storage bin for him.  The best part is that I did it for $0!

Etsy has some seriously gorgeous pieces of furniture– and they happen to store dog food. Unless you’re a carpenter, this kind of storage will be harder to make on your own. However, the piece will fit seamlessly into your house. Guests will be none the wiser that Fido’s food is inside!

Dakota lives under this crazy pretense that everything must be for her, so she wasted no time helping herself to lunch while I was trying to take pictures of the finished dog food stand. I’ll admit that this is a pretty big size, but the height is perfect for her and she has no problem reaching her food and water. The dishes are easy to remove when they need to be filled and I love that it looks so much nicer than having her big bag of food out on display.

I’ve been on road trips where I had to put my dog’s food into plastic baggies. Not only is this not the most stylish accessory, but the bags are also impossible for pups to eat out of. This portable bowl by Cport Products solves that problem. Whenever your dog is hungry, simply unzip the container and place it on the ground. Voila! Instant bowl.

I originally wanted to buy the fancy coffee table hinges that would lift the lid up and out of the way, but at $50 it was a little expensive for a dog food stand. Instead, I bought these narrow utility hinges for the back and then the lid support hinges to keep the lid from slamming down if the kids were filling the dog bowl. I was originally going to use two of the lid support hinges, but you’ll notice that both of these hinges say “left.” Not something I paid attention to when I was standing in Home Depot.To help the lid sit flat against the box, I grabbed my 3/4″ chisel and mortised the hinges. Since I couldn’t mortise the lid, I went deep enough on the box for the whole hinge to sit flush with the rim. Don’t let this step intimidate you. It’s super easy to do on a project like this.

Harry Barker is the Chanel of dog food storage. While the company’s containers might be a little more pricey, there’s no denying how nice they look. They actually add to the style of a room, rather than detract from it. The pattern below is called toile. Well, well, fancy aren’t we?

We all want to have a house that looks like it came straight off of a Pinterest board. But when you have a dog, it can be hard to make your house look completely Conde Nast chic. However, every pup owner can take small steps to add a little glam to their animal-filled life. One great change to make is the way that you store your dog treats.

This item is currently sold out on Etsy, but it would be easy to make yourself. Simply find a shelving unit, decorate it however you desire, and place your dog food inside. If you don’t want to make indents for the bowls but still want to keep them hidden, simply place them inside the container! DIY isn’t as hard as you’d think, after all.

Love it. With two big dogs, we always have ugly bags of dog food everywhere and them eating out of plastic containers. Time to change that. Besos, Sarah Journeys of The Zoo

I love the clear containers with the little dogs on top, so cute! I use a lot of baskets for kitchen stuff which is good for treat bags, bones & such. For kibble I use a plastic container with screw on lid. I really need a bigger one but I don’t have the floor space.

Hi Marche, I have had readers adjust this to hold two dog bowls and a water bowl in the middle. Basically, it is just made to be longer. I actually now have two dogs and our puppy is big enough now that it’s time to build a new one. I’ll be sure to post the plans when I do!

I’m not entirely sure what this little creature is, but it’s definitely adorable. If you’ve got a quirky side, then this method of storage is perfect for you. In fact, PetEgo has tons of other tins like the one below. Check out their website for more options.
