We recently fitted out a garage that involved a bespoke dog shower and it got us thinking about all the other ways you can accommodate everything your dog may need, in your garage space.
From hanging up leads to installing a good quality floor that’s easy to clean, here are some ideas on how to make your garage dog friendly.
Add in easy to clean flooring
There’s nothing worse than coming home from a lovely long walk and your dog leaving dirty marks all over the house. If you are lucky enough to have a garage then adding in some easy to clean flooring can certainly cut down on the clearing up. Simply create a space where you can clean up the dog first (see our later note on a dog shower/bath), before they go into the home.
Install shelving for all those dog food deliveries
If you have bulk deliveries of dog food, they can take up quite a bit of space. Shelving is a good way of being able to stack it all neatly and keep it out of the way until you need it.
Hang up dog coats, leads and bags in style
Find the lead, harness, collar and dog bags when you area ready for a walk. Hang them up on hooks for easy access.
Create a bespoke dog shower area for after those muddy walks
Being able to reverse into the garage and put the dog straight into the bath or shower is a game changer. We have helped customers create bespoke showers/baths as part of their garage makeover so they can minimise mess and get the dog clean and shiny again!
The photos below were part of a wider garage makeover installed in June 2021 where the customer wanted a bespoke dog shower installed. Making use of a corner space, we built a frame with space for the plumbing to go in underneath and panelled it in our wall cladding to keep it waterproof. This is a bespoke design depending on the space you have and the size of dog, and can be added to your garage makeover as part of the design.
