As dogs become more a part of our family, I find most of my clients are looking for mudroom ideas for dogs.  Let’s make it a dog-friendly laundry room.  Check out my video below:

Mudroom Ideas for Dogs

Now that homeowners are starting to utilize their laundry rooms or mud rooms for pets, I thought you’d want to see some great suggestions how to make that part of your home more pet-centric!

There is a whole industry that is moving towards catering to pets.  Let’s go over a few neat things to consider for your mudroom:

  • Lockers or cubbies – great to store food in airtight containers.  Another place to store toys, leashes, jackets and dog bones
  • Dog crates built into cabinets – this is a great place to have your dog crate – hidden away and under your laundry room folding station!
  • Dog washing station in the laundry room – if your dog gets mud or dirt on his paws, it would be a great way to rinse off his paws or give him that occasional bath.  Would totally save on grooming fees.
  • A place to Store Dog Bowls – train your dog to drink and eat in the mudroom too!

Final recap – I have three dogs.  They are a huge part of our family.  But honestly, they need a place, just like the kids, to store all their toys, leashes, bones and food.  But I really have enjoyed having their dog crates stored away to keep the smell down in the rest of the home.  My wife enjoys the fact we have a dog washing station in the laundry room too.
