With two hungry dogs, we go through dog food often! Stocking up on dog food is ALWAYS on my list, and I typically head to PetSmart so that I can bring the entire family along. We like to look at the fish and gerbils and birds while our dogs enjoy the entire shopping experience. Sometimes we let them “pick” out their own dog toys! ;) Since my son is getting older (and therefore getting into every thing!), I need to get creative with WHERE I store our dogs’ toys and food. I am reorganizing our doggie play room to hide dog food and treats up high. I created this simple dog food storage crate to do the job!
I first stopped by PetSmart to buy Purina® Pro Plan® for our dogs. If you’re interested in trying this food for your dog, visit the Purina® Pro Plan® MyPLAN website to get your dog’s MyPLAN recommendation and a rebate offer for a free bag of Purina® Pro Plan® Dry Dog Food (4-6lbs, up to $18.99.)

I was able to find all the different varieties of Purina® Pro Plan® easily at my local PetSmart. It has real chicken, beef, lamb, or salmon and is the #1 ingredient found in all Purina® Pro Plan® dry formulas. It’s also the first dry dog food brand to use and be founded on the idea of real meat as the #1 ingredient to help promote total body health. Every high quality ingredient is chosen for a specific purpose.
Additionally, Purina® Pro Plan® wants to give your dog the nutrition to be his absolute best, helping him to be energetic and resilient, and maintaining an ideal body condition, healthy skin, and a stunning coat. Because being the best your pet can be means something different for every dog, they have a wide range of dry and wet foods, snacks, and supplement bars that can be found in five specialized platforms. Each one contains products formulated for a dog’s taste preferences, age/dietary considerations, or activity/lifestyle.
My toddler loves to fill our dog bowls each day, and it is a “chore” that I gladly let him do. However, he can be a bit messy and we end up finding dog food hidden under the couch or scattered across the floor. To combat this without sacrificing style, I wanted to use a crate to store their dog food and toys. You see, toddler toys and dog toys actually look very similar. They’re soft, usually squeaky, and a lot of fun to play with! ;)
Dog Food Crate
- You can find unfinished crates at most retailers. They’re a great thing to have especially if you are a blogger! You can use them as decor, storage, or for fun crafts!
- Grab a few colors of paint and a sponge paintbrush.
- Decide on your design. I just did stripes. I also tried to do a marbleized effect on one of the rows. I used the sponge brush and lightly blotted it back and forth.
- When the paint dries, embellish with stickers. I don’t exactly have a steady hand so stencils or freehand wouldn’t have worked very well! Fill with a bag of Purina® Pro Plan® and all the toys that can fit!

My furry friends enjoy their meals and now I have a bit of my sanity back. Here’s to staying organized and keeping the dog food out of my toddler’s reach! ;) The crate will be stored on a shelf right above their food. It’s easy access and was a cheap DIY. One spring cleaning project at a time, right?
