Our little dog is such an important part of our family. Dedicated walking companion, protector, cuddle buddy, bed warmer, teammate, and comic relief, I just can’t imagine our lives without our furry best friend. It’s for all these reasons that any extra work or mess made by Fido is completely worth it, including the mess of pet food. However, although you just have to accept some mess with pet food, that doesn’t mean you have to store it in style-killing bags or containers. Here are creative ways to store your pet’s food.

A FAN-ister of the Canister
I’m a fan of the pet food canisters from Ballard Designs. What I’m not a fan of is paying $65 for a thin metal can. Make your own version instead for a fraction of the cost using holiday popcorn cans. Plus, you can munch on your own popcorn Scooby snacks while you whip up this easy DIY.
Glass Is Class
Keep your storage more classy with a simple glass jar. Glue or stick on animal inspired shapes, vinyl stickers, or even paint to customize the jar specifically for Fido. You can find glass jars at many home decor stores. My favorite are from Cost Plus World Market.
Pamper With the Hamper
