Southern Mom Loves: Set Up a Treat Station for Your Dog!

Set Up a Treat Station for Your Dog!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

We love to treat our pup. Whether it's a new toy or something yummy, our furry baby always gets the good stuff. The problem is that we weren't very organized about it. We would have half-empty treat bags all over the top of the fridge and toys all over the house. I decided to get organized and set up a treat station in one area of the kitchen so that everything has a home and we can see at a glance if we need to stock up on treats or replace worn toys and I'll show you how I did it.

First, if you're new here, meet Hermione. Her markings make her looks extra sad, which is probably why she gets all the treats.

Her new treat station has a bin for her toys, grooming tools, meds, and I popped a leash in there for walkies. :) This has been really helpful because I don't know about your dogs, but mine is like a toddler. If she sees the same toy day in and day out, she gets bored with it. This way we can put them out of sight and when it makes the rounds again, she'll be super-excited about it!

It also contains a few jars to house a variety of treats. I grabbed clear jars so that we can see when we need to stock up and I attached them to each other so they'll stay neat-looking on the counter. Also so that one of the kids can't run off with the treats and later you find the empty package in their room because they were trying to teach the dog to dance. Not that that's happened or anything.

I grabbed everything I needed for this treat station at Walmart. I already had a bin so I just needed clear jars (housewares) and to grab more treats (pet section).

We're giving her Milo’s Kitchen® Homestyle Dog Treats. If you check the ingredients, real chicken, beef or duck is the first ingredient listed. They're totally free of artificial flavors and they're made in either Spanish Fork, Utah or Siloam Springs, Arkansas.

They look like real jerky, sausage slices, and meatballs. Our pets are our family and they deserve treats made with the same quality of ingredients and care that we would want for our own food. Nothing says "I love you" more than something made with love and care.

While I was in the pet section I may have grabbed a few more toys, too. :)

 Let's Set Up a Treat Station!

  • Jars with airtight lids
  • treats for each jar
  • hot glue gun
  • a bin or basket

First, fill your jars with treats and seal the lids.

Next, apply a large dot of hot glue to the center of a jar side near the bottom.

Slide it into the side of the next jar, making sure they are in line with each other. You can slide them together against a wall to make sure they're flush with each other.

Repeat with any remaining jars. Now they'll stay nice and neat looking on your counter. :)

Get a bin or basket that is big enough to fit all of their toys, meds, grooming tools, and leashes/harnesses. If in doubt, go a little larger. Look for taller bins instead of wider at the base. It will save you counter space. :)

Fill the bin with all of their pup stuff and you're done!

Place it all on a counter in the kitchen or a table by the door, wherever is a convenient spot for you to grab it and get playing!

Does 'Miney want a chicken meatball?

Hermione wants ALL of the chicken meatballs!


Do you have one area set up for treats and toys? Will you be setting up a treat station of your own? I love to read your comments!
