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.
And here's another dog-bone-themed leash holder.
Moving beyond metal options, here's a mosaic tile bone-shaped dog leash holder.

This leash holder comes from Nancy DeYoung.
You can get a leash holder custom-made with your pet's name. Update on January 9, 2012: The site that was selling these seems to have disappeared.
Over on Etsy you can get a paw print leash holder.
And moving away from simple wall hooks, here's another way to store leashes.
Update on June 6, 2009: You can find one more hook in Part 4 of this series, listed below.
