This is Oliver, our adorable Boston Pom.
There’s two things Oliver loves: eating and long walks. Anything outdoors is his favorite. Taking Oliver for walks is something that our family loves to do. As our kids are getting older, they’re starting to enjoy helping with this. They like to get Oliver ready for his walk by putting his collar and leash on or getting a waste bag to take with us.
To make it easier to find Oliver’s things, we decided to create an organizer for his leashes, collar and bags. We also are sharing a great coupon for one of Oliver’s favorite meals from Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® DISH. He loves the Nutrish DISH Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe.
DIY Dog Wall Organizer
What You’ll Need:
Piece of Wood (I had a small wood serving board I wanted to repurpose, but you can use any piece of wood and stain to your liking).
Cabinet Knobs or Hooks
Drill & 1/8 Drill Bit
Screws (for jar & screws that come with cabinet knobs or hooks)
Hose Clamp (Find in plumbing section at home improvement store)
Start by laying everything out and making appropriate marks on the wood (for hose clamp & knobs). Decide on placement for vinyl lettering. I opted to do a paw print and my dog’s name.
Next, prepare the hose clamp that will hold the jar. Wrap the metal around the jar for a test fit. Mark the center back with a marker, and then mark where you want to cut the excess off. Remove the jar and set aside. Grab your screw and find a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the screw. Drill a pilot hole through the metal where you marked and into the wood. Clip off the excess length of the hose clamp with wire shears. (You may want to sand this if the edges are rough).
Insert your screw through the hole in the clamp and screw it into the pilot hole you made in the wood. Insert your jar into the wire hose clamp and tighten the wire around the jar by tightening the screw on the clamp with a flat head screw driver.
For the knobs, mark and drill the hole for your knobs. Find a drill bit that is the same size as your knobs bolt. Drill a hole where you marked on your wood for the knob and attach knobs.
Apply vinyl lettering as directed.
Place on your desired spot on the wall. I knew the placement of my organizer could change AND I get really antsy about placing holes in our walls. I used heavy duty wall adhesive strips instead of drilling. However, if yours is heavier or you use a larger mason jar, you may want to attach to the wall with screws for safety.
Now, all of Oliver’s things are in one spot. It’s much more organized and we’re not hunting for his leash or collar that was seeming to get lost. You could use the mason jar for treats or waste bags, like we did. With walks more organized, Oliver can focus on his other love – eating! We love Nutrish DISH, which Rachael Ray created – inspired by the recipes from her own kitchen.
The recipes are made with simple, wholesome ingredients like real meat or fish and do not contain poultry by-product meal or fillers. I also love that a portion of the proceeds from Nutrish DISH is donated to The Rachael Ray Foundation which helps animals in need through Rachael’s Rescue. Oliver was a rescue puppy and so we like that these funds are used for food, medical supplies, treatements and more for animals in need. I purchase Nutrish DISH on Amazon.com – it’s so convenient to subscribe to or add to my one of many orders.
If you want to try Nutrish DISH and change your dog’s food — here’s a food transition tip: Gradually introduce the food by incorporating it into your current dog food over the course of 7-10 days. Slowly replace your dog’s current food with Nutrish DISH until it’s completely switched over.
I hope you try out the wall organizer and that it helps make organizing your dog’s walk supplies!
