I used to keep it in my kitchen during the winter months. Not sure where I am going to keep it this winter since it has grown so much due to boarding and the Sunroom is not heated. I thought about getting a space heater when it gets too cold, so i can still feed outside.. I have an extra table for the boarding dogs if need arises.

Anyhow, this is what it looks like. I have three to four different measuring cups and interestingly, hills cups are a different size than an iams cup. My dogs get a single cup that would translate into two iams cups etc..pp

I basically keep everything in one place. From Medication, to treats, to Shampoo and Dog Cologne, to left over food from previous dogs, extra leashes etc.

Would love to see how your Set Up is, especially if you have 4 plus dogs. At times I have up to 13 dogs, so being organized is important, and I still feel that I can always improve. What you see in the pictures is basically just for my own four dogs. Am I the only that crazy?

Desitin - excellent for perianal fistulas

Sandra: I will tidy up the dog supply room and take a picture for you!
Thanks, that would be great. My kitchen is definitely too small. This set up with the table works much better.

This is basically what it looks like when I feed mine. It works best in the Sunroom, since we have so much space in there. The b&w dog is a regular boarder. :)







...and year, the Sunroom def. needs to be renovated. ;)

Oh man, I need a set up like this! I've got four dogs and right now everything is on the main kitchen counter, lol! With the exception on the dog food, we have two big air tight containers, two because my GSD is picky and I often have to change his food around to get him to eat. I would love to have one central location for everything and hmm even have a spot in mind, just need to get a little cabinet to stick there... Thanks for giving me an idea!! :D

That is how I used to do it. The dinner table was packed with the food of boarding dogs. The house was literally consumed by the dogs and one day I was like: I have to do something about this and now we have a home again. LOL

I tend to keep my dog essentials in two places: the dog room and my dog trailer's storage compartment.

Here are the trailer items. Mostly equipment for IPO, SV conformation equipment, grooming items, cleanup items (puppies - gotta love them!), emergency first aid, treats, emergency food, my boots, chair etc.

Right front boxes:


Need to get everyone fed - will post dog room a bit later! :)

Trailer: WT-Metall | Hundeanhänger
WT-Metall | Produkte

Safety, security, comfort, organization, temperature control, keeps my vehicle clean, able to transport other people, keeps all dog items in one place, and it is my on the go kennel. My dogs are comfortable, cool, and relaxed - not panting in the car and I don't need to scramble for shade at any event. Actually better for me to park in the sun to activate my solar panels! :)

I travel almost every weekend (shows, training, seminar, trial, whatever) - I can't bring 5 dogs into the hotel room with me (nor would I want to) - they stay locked in the trailer with temperature regulated via fans and cooling system in the summer and insulation in the winter.

I've got 4 dogs and I've got stuff spread out all over the place. They have a drawer in the laundry room for leashes/brushes and collars. I have a huge 50 gallon plastic trash bin with locking lid for their food also in the laundry room their cookies and glyco flex are in my pantry and their medicine are in my medicine cabinet in the kitchen.. They have a toy box on the floor in my living room and dog beds are in a short hall and in my bedroom. I have a couple of crates in my front room for them to retreat into if they so desire. I feed spread out too, one in the dining room, the two labs in the kitchen and one in my computer room. They also have a beenbag chair in my spa room and they help themselves to the futon in the front room. They are banned from all other furniture and my bed. LOL

They don't travel with us my kids come stay with them if we go somewhere which isn't often. They do come on day trips in the car or we will tie down their crates in the back of our pickup.

That is an excellent idea. Especially when you get those 50 pounds bags and you always have 20 pounds left because the storage bins only take up to 30.

I want one so bad. I'm wondering if my parents may give me their trailer, now that they are no longer in the sport. After all those years, it's still in excellent condition. :wub:

It makes it easy to mix food too, or you can keep a couple of different smaller bags in there. :)

How much do one of those trailers cost?
