How to Build a Dog Food Station with Storage

DIY Dog Food Station with Storage

One of the challenges of keeping a pet is the mess they often create. We love our dogs, but every pet owner knows that having a dog running around the house can mean endless clean-up duty!

Does your dog love to tip his/her bowl over, always making a mess with his food or water? Well, here’s one project that might just solve your problem…

A dog food station with storage! It secures both water and food bowl at a suitable height so that your dog does not spill his/her food and he/she can eat comfortably.  The storage keeps the dog food supply from being out on display, too.

This featured dog food station can fit a 10-gallon tote box perfect for big dogs. And if you’ve got a small or medium-sized dog, then simply adjust the measurements. In other cases though, you might need to redesign your own dog food station because this design obviously won’t work for tiny dogs. 😉
