BLOG: TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR DOG’S LIFE

image

In today’s world where we’re always on the go and “busy” is a way of life, being organized is critical to navigating everything we want to accomplish in a day. We use apps, lists, calendars, and other organizers to keep ourselves on track — so why wouldn’t we do the same for our four-legged friends? 

Between appointments, vet visits, and playdates with other pups, our dogs’ lives can be just as busy and fun-filled as our own. Keep up with everything your pet needs with these tips for organizing your dog’s life:

 

Keep important papers in good order. Create a special file where you can store documents containing important information about your dog. Keep all records of vet visits or medications in your file. Type up details about your pup’s routine, diet, special needs, and quirks to include as well; this comes in handy if you ever need a petsitter or dogwalker.

 

Write important contact info, like phone numbers and email addresses, of vets or other caregivers on the front of your dog’s file so you don’t have to go hunting for business cards or scraps of paper every time you need to get in touch.

 

Be prepared for minor accidents. While you should always seek out medical attention for your dog from your vet in case of injury or illness, having a doggy first aid kit on hand will help you deal with minor accidents. Items in your kit can also help keep your pup calm and stable until you can reach your vet.

 

Include the following items (and don’t hesitate to ask your vet for specific first aid kit recommendations): first aid book for pets, contact information for regular vets and emergency vets in your area, self-clinging bandage, gauze pads, antiseptic wipes or spray, hydrogen peroxide, spare leash, and/or pet carrier.

 

Organize toys and supplies. Keep your dog’s toys, leads, and collars nice and organized (and your house tidy) by making use of Waggo’s fun toy bins and totes. Made of sturdy canvas and available in a variety of colors and patterns, they’re the perfect way to keep your space clean while ensuring all the pet supplies you need for play and exercise are in one place and ready to go.

 

Designate a spot for all your doggy needs. You can organize your own space even further by designating a specific spot to house all your dog’s supplies. Toy bins can easily be stored in mudrooms or laundry rooms next to airtight food containers. And put pretty collars and leads on display by hanging them above your stored items.
