A dog walking station can help to make life easier when it is time to take your dog out of the house. There is nothing worse than running around looking for a leash, or a collar, or some bags in order to take your dog for a walk. A dog walking station is something that every homeowner who has a dog needs. A dog walking station is very easy to set up and arrange. Below are some ideas to help you get started.
Do you know those hooks that you hang in the hallway that people use for coats? Well this can easily be used for your pet items. Place at least four to five hooks in the hallway. This will be the spot where you can hang the leashes, the dog collar, and any other items you may need for the dog. You can even get fancy with the hooks you choose to use. They make doorway hooks that look like animals such as a fox, or whatever other animals you may want.
Personalize the space
I realize that this is just a dog, but there is nothing wrong with personalizing the space for your pet. You can hang up a picture of your pet, or you can place a plaque with the dogs initials on it above the hooks. This really helps to add to the decor of the hallway as well as making items easier to find. If you want it to blend with the rest of your decor you will have to be creative, so it does not come to be a dog junk space.
Over the door shelf
An over the door shelf rack is the perfect way to store items for your dog. These types of shelves can be found at Walmart, and you can keep everything that your dog needs on the shelves. This includes the doggy bath wash, and even the small towels can be placed their. If you have a hallway door near the front door this would be the perfect location. Having the towels there makes it easier to grab so you can dry off the day. The shelves can also be mounted to the wall. You can decorate the area with some pictures of the family with the dog on the wall around the shelves.
A cabinet is easy to use for a dog walking station. You can make the cabinet yourself, buy a used one from a garage sale, or from a thrift store. The doggy cabinet works well because you can add all of the supplies in the cabinet. The best part is that you can still use the top of the cabinet to hold your items, and it will not stand out too much in your hallway.
