Anyone who lives with dogs knows who's really the master of the house. You can, however, take back some control in your home by reining in all their stuff. Stepping on a soggy, drool-drenched tennis ball is no way to start your morning. Instead of letting your house go to the dogs, keep it together by keeping all their toys and treats in one tidy spot. All it takes are a few easy-to-install organizers from Command™ Brand.
Make Your Pawesome Pet Command Center
The secret to keeping your pet's stuff organized without it all getting lost in a bag or jumbled up in a basket? Hang it up. You'll be able to see everything easily and grab what you need when it's time to go, plus you'll be encouraged to keep your pet's stuff clean when it's on display. (Don't fret. Those little plastic bags you save for accidents can still stay hidden in an organizer.)
What You'll Need
- Command™ Dry Erase Message Center
- Command™ Slate Terrace Hooks
- Command™ Slate Picture Ledge
- Command™ Satin Nickel Wall and Cabinet Organizer
- Pet portrait (because, why not?)
- Leash and collar
- Food and water bowls
- Pet bed or pillow
- Toys and treats
- Plastic bags (tucked away, of course)
What You'll Do
First, put up the Command™ Picture Ledge by following all package instructions. Installation is easy, there are no tools or nails required, and it won't damage your walls. Designed to hold up to 5 pounds, it's perfect for tennis balls, pet toys, and maybe even a small pet portrait.
Next, install your Command™ Hooks. Measure a few inches down from the bottom of the picture ledge, using a level. Measure 2.5" in from each end of the picture ledge and mark with a pencil. Then, space your hooks 4 inches apart. Hang by following the installation instructions on the packaging, and note that the Command™ Terrace Hooks hold up to 3 pounds, so they're perfect for collars and leashes.
Then, hang the Command™ Dry Erase Message Center. Framed with a slate border, the dry-erase board is the perfect place to leave notes for the dog walker or reminders to pick up pet treats. It also includes a little ledge for your marker and three hooks for keys or collars (this one holds up to 2 pounds).
Next, install the cabinet organizers. We stacked two on top of each other. They're waterproof and rust resistant (they're actually designed to work in the bathroom) so they hold up well against drooly dog toys. Each organizer holds up to 6 pounds, and like all Command™ Products, comes with all you need to hang it. No nails, no mess, no worries!
Last, pull up your pet bed. Find a spot for the food and water bowls, and you're all set.
Of course, your own pet's gear might require a slightly different setup — fewer hooks, perhaps, or more organizers. The combinations are really endless, as long as it works for you, and you can always change it up whenever you want.
NOTE: If your project requires other Command™ Brand products, make sure to check the package instructions for weight limits and step-by-step installation tips!
