What would you put in your perfect pet friendly home?
To say I’m beyond blown away with the post we have lined up for you today is an understatement. The gorgeous Casey from Pretty Organized is here to share her super organized doggy drawer. Who knew slobbery dog toys, tangles leashes and all those bits n bobs we have as dog owners could be so neat? Take it away Casey…
Hey guys! I am SO excited to stop by today & share one of my space-saving projects with you!
We live in a tiny house & recently made over our entryway into a dining room. We used the STUVA series from Ikea to create bench seating with storage, and one of those storage drawers is now home to our dandy little doggy drawer!
We keep everything right by the front door, so whenever we get ready to go for a “W” (we can’t say “Walk” without starting a happy commotion around here), we can just grab whatever we need & head outside.
I separated their extra collars and leashes into smaller baskets to help keep them from getting tangled. These drawers are really deep, so I re-purposed an adjustable cabinet shelf to create extra space under the leash baskets. I had a shoe box that fit perfectly, and I just covered it with an old towel to make it a little more slobber-proof. Voila! A great little spot to stash their toys.
On the right, I decided to dedicate a basket to grooming. A little towel is tucked in the corner for wiping wet paws, and all of their brushes, nail clippers, etc. are nestled in an old coffee container. I also tossed all of their monthly medications (flea meds, heartworm, etc.) into a Ziplock bag.
I love our new doggy drawer! Everything is easily accessible, right by the front door, and all in one spot. Using all white containers helps keep the deep drawer nice and bright. The plastic baskets are easy to clean, and if the towel lining the toy box gets too gross, I can just toss it in the washer. Easy peasy!
How do you keep YOUR pups on point?
My name is Casey, and I live in a sweet, tiny little house in Delaware, USA with my hubby and our two adorable rescue dogs, Basil & Chase. As a longtime fan of Serena’s beautiful blog, I am absolutely THRILLED to be guest posting for Pretty Fluffy!
I used to be a total mess, but after I let go of the idea of “perfect,” I found freedom. I stopped trying to fit the mold & learned how to make organization work with my natural habits, and I have become obsessed with creative organizing solutions ever since! When I’m not drooling over the latest amazing pet-friendly project features over here, you can find me happily tinkering away on my own blog, Pretty Organized, where I share my addiction to aesthetics, small space storage ideas, DIY projects, and all things aqua!
Happy Friday Pretty Fluffies! Today I am guest posting over at the lovely I Heart Organizing.

Also just a little reminder if you follow Pretty Fluffy on Facebook. Due to change in the new algorithm to promote their paid feature content, only around 10% of fans will now see our updates. Which sucks, because I put a lot of original content on facebook just for our awesome facebook fans – and now you may be missing it!
