User Topic: Decorative dog food storage ideas?
incredulous

I have two big dogs, and I'm looking for a decorative dog food storage container that will hold a big bag of food-- maybe 30 pounds? (don't have one of the bags to see how big the bags are, but I think that's about right.) I have a raised feeder that stores food, but my dogs don't like to eat out of it, so I'd like to find something different. I don't have a closet or anywhere else to hide the dog food, so I'm looking for something I could leave out in my family room to store the food. Nothing too rustic, but it doesn't need to be real fancy either.

Any ideas from some of the fellow dog lovers out there?

Thanks!

Ikea has some painted garbage cans in nice colours and different sizes that are little retro in feel. I have one large and one medium in my dining room holding my kid's toys and I like how they look. The large one is big enough to fit a big bag of dog food, I think. The lid isn't airtight but it is close fitting.

You could use something like this


I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper and complain.

If this isn't what I consider soulmate crap, I don't know what is.

I have my 30-lb bag of cat kibble in a large plastic tote w/lid, but that's not really livingroomworthy. How about a nice antique footlocker/chest that could double as a table.

Oh I have an answer for this. We had a Great Dane, and a Golden retriever so we had to have the raised bowls. We also went through a lot of dog food, about 40 pounds every 2.5 weeks.

So we went to Target and bough one of their Hall benches, has the back that goes up about 5 feet and has hooks for coats and such, and bench part has a lid that lifts up, and you can store stuff in it.

My H then made an insert that had holes cut to hole their food and water bowls (used a rubber gasket for the water, so it didn't get the kibble wet) then stored the kibble underneath. It worked great, and when we had company coming, just flip the lid down.

It worked out really well. We are down to just one smallish lab these days, so we don't use it for that anymore, but still have the insert stored in the garage attic.

Former Great Dane owner here. Two at a time...

I bought a plastic wastebasket/recycling bin with a hinged lid. It's about 2 feet tall, 2 feet wide, and maybe 18 inches deep.

It holds a 50 pound bag of dry dog food, and I kept the scoop in it.


Take care of yourself. There's a great future out there. It won't come to you; you have to go to it.

I used to have a golden retriever. I would purchase 40lb bags of dog food. I kept it in a Rubbermaid container. For a while the container was decorated with some decorative tape. Eventually the container was put inside an old toy chest/bench. It worked well.
Also had the raised bowls, I used plant stands. It worked. Still use smaller ones for the cat. His food 30lb bag, fits in an old kitty litter plastic bin.

I had to have something with a heavy lid, as my dogs could flip open the Rubbermaid, and latching lid type containers they sell at the pet food store. Nothing like spending money on something you think will work to find that your dogs ate about 20 pounds of dog food when you get home!!!!
