DIY Doggie Treat Station


I already had these mason jars with chipboard labels from the Dollar Spot at Target that I use for keeping crunchy training treats and chew treats for Ruby and Boca, but when I saw these darling treat jars on Irresistible Pets I knew they needed improving. I immediately started perusing eBay for some plastic dogs, and had to have the set that included a toy which could pass for a Norwegian Elkhound. I intended to paint them but I like the way they look in black and white too...

I also wanted a nicer way to keep the clickers, extra treats, nail clippers, medications and all the rest of the doggie items I reach for frequently that were cluttering my countertop. I found this three drawer organizer at Michael's, but I won't recommend it because it fell apart immediately and my dad had to reinforce it for me. I have seen sturdier ones at The Container Store. I purchased the chalkboard labels and like that I can change them if I ever rearrange the contents. 


I completed my spruced-up doggie station with this framed print, also from Michael's. I was so excited to find it because I've been wanting something similar. I love the vintage look and the colors are perfect for my kitchen/dining area. There are so many fun ways to organize canine accoutrements and turn your home into a pup's paradise - I've even started a Pinterest board for my dog-friendly dream home. These little projects just make me want to do more!

  2. I recognize the buddy biscuits! I keep all of B's stuff in the fridge in their original bags. Now that seems so lame after seeing your set up!

  3. I have our treats pretty well sorted into cleaned peanut butter jars (we buy a brand in glass, with metal lids) and IKEA canisters. I use the quick-and-easy sharpie+masking tape label system. I do need a better solution for the "stuff" though. There's a storage bin in the pantry, plus a flowerpot with nail clippers and such, but it's always overflowing.

    1. This countertop display doesn't even begin to contain all of it...I have another bin with regularly used medications, then a cupboard below for food, more treats, and I keep the overflow food, treats and toys in my hall closet. It's a little ridiculous.

  7. Lara, you know how much I love crafts! I am going to definitely steal your idea, but use the station for Wynston's supplements he's on now. Great post!!!

    1. It really could be used for anything! I have clickers, head collar, calming cap and the like in the top drawer, treats in the middle drawer, and medications, grooming equipment and first aid in the bottom drawer.

  8. Love the jars; much better than the containers I have. I'll have to stop by Goodwill to see if they have any used jars that I can wash and use :)

  9. Fascinating information I haven’t been experienced such information in quite a long time. My pooch absolutely loves these natural rawhide bones. Not only does he look forward to his night time ritual which always includes a bedtime bone or two. They allow him to settle down & know it’s time for bed, not playtime. I highly recommend these bones for any dog. The ingredients are top notch and all organic. If you love your pooch, you'll always include bedtime bones in their daily rituals. Keep on Sharing!!!
