Reader Question: Pet Stuff Storage (Part 2: Hooks for Leashes)

key and leash holder made from recycled scrap materials

Hooks are a natural answer for hanging leashes by the door. While there's obviously no need to buy a dog-themed hook for the leashes, there are a number of options if you do want such a hook. Many of them didn't do much for me - but here are some that did catch my eye.

The Happy Puppy key and leash holder above is made from recycled scrap materials, which means each piece is a bit different from all others. Update on January 10, 2012: See more of the Yardbirds key/leash holders here. There are cat versions, too.)

Bones are a common theme in leash holders; here's a dog bone rack. Update on January 9, 2012: The site that was selling this leash holder no longer has it.

Great stuff. Have you seen the dog and cat toy storage boxes at They are repetitively inexpensive and will hold all kinds of things for your pets. Take a look.
