When we first make the decision to introduce a dog into our lives, sometimes we forget to consider the amount of ‘stuff’ they bring with them. While it can look unsightly to begin with, there are many savvy organisation options out there, designed specifically for the more style-conscious animal lover. Here is a round-up of our top eight stylish dog storage solutions, guaranteed to add a certain je nais ce quoi to your home.

There is also space for keys, a purse or wallet and your phone, so everything is in one place. Available at store.styletails.com.
2. PET FEEDER STATION
