1 Start with His Bed

His little tail will be wagging for sure with his new cute bed! Do you have a small table or over extended shelf? Put his bed under it. Then add some class by applying Velcro under the table and sticking a set of curtains under there. It gives him a little security while adding a little class to your room.
2 Keep His Treats Safe

Does your little pooch always tear into his box of treat? A better, and prettier way would be to store the treats in a food canister. These containers are made to protect your food from air, and thus drying out. So, now your dog’s treats will stay fresh longer and look nice sitting on the shelf.
3 Add a Cabinet

A cabinet, or maybe a shadow box, would be great sitting on top of your table. It’s a great place to store your doggy essentials. Stick on a few stick-on cup hooks to add more organization.
4 Stock a to-go Bag

Whether you are on the way to the park, or on a visit to moms, pack a bag. Include a couple of treats, some water, and a “pooper” bag, just in case! Don’t forget an extra leash for an unexpected walk.
5 Store His Food Better

Use a kitchen trashcan to stash your doggie food. It looks way better than the bag you purchased it in. And it keeps longer. Try a motion-operated lid for ease of use. Who knows, you might decide to get one to actually hold you trash!
6 Cure Carsickness

Does your pooch love to go for a car, after he’s emptied his stomach on your back seat? Try this: a gingersnap cookie! Treat him about 10 minutes before your trip begins and give him another one half way through the trip. The ginger will calm his queasiness and both of you will feel better about your car ride!
7 Keep Fleas Away

Summer is here, and with the great weather comes fleas! We hate fleas as much the poor puppy! Keep fleas away with a great non-toxic remedy. Lemon essential oil is toxic to fleas, but not to dogs. Apply it to his neck, behind his ears, and around his tail and rump area. One taste of the oil and the fleas will say bye-bye!
