DIY Leash Hook + Dog Treat Jar

Being a stay-at-home mom is one of my biggest blessings, but it is so easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to being active and getting outside. My kids love to go out and play and our dog, Winston, is extremely active, but sprinting around the sofa just doesn't always cut it. Thanks to IAMS™ Visible Difference and a quick and easy DIY we were able to establish a better routine and get our whole family into a more active and healthy lifestyle.

With two young kids and a crazy dog always underfoot, I needed a way to get out of the house on a regular basis with ease. I came up with a fun DIY Leash Hook + Treat Jar to make our daily walk more enjoyable and less of a hassle. I absolutely love the way this turned out and think it would make a great gift for any pet owner!


What You'll Need

Wooden Plaque - Metal Hooks - Pint Size Mason Jar - 3" Pipe Clamp - Paint - Foam Brush - Picture Hanging Kit


First paint and decorate your wooden plaque as desired. I bought a foam stamp from the craft store, but you could always hand paint or use a stencil or vinyl cut out!


Once the paint has dried fully, attach your hardware on both sides! We used a drill to screw in the hooks and a simple hammer + nail to nail the pipe clamp onto the plaque. Be sure to nail your pipe clamp down before screwing in your mason jar.


Now you're ready to hang it up and fill your jar with some yummy homemade treats!


Winston is always waiting by his hook for us to take him on a walk, but staying active isn't the only thing he needs to keep up that energy. Just like the first step to a happy person is a healthy diet, the first step to a happy and healthy dog is what's in his bowl. With a puppy who tends to suffer from skin sensitivity and allergies, I have to be as picky as he is when it comes to buying his food. We opt for IAMS Grain Free Dog Food because it's the perfect combination of taste and nutrition that my active boy needs, and the fatty acids from fish oils keep his skin healthy and coat looking sleek and shiny.


Before and after a good long stroll, IAMS gives Winston just the right amount of protein and carbs to keep him energetic and visibly happy. Not 100% satisfied? No worries! There's a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back! I especially love that I can just pick up a bag in the "Pet Care" aisle of my local Walmart while I'm shopping for myself and my kids. Nothing like getting groceries for the whole family in one-stop shop!


I love how these easy walks are making my family and my dog feel great! Ready to start seeing the IAMS™ Visible Difference in your pets? Enter the #IAMSVisbleDifferenceSweepstakes below for your chance to WIN IAMS for a year or a $125 Walmart gift card!
