Using A Storage Unit As A Pet Owner

by Irma Soto

As a pet owner, you may look around your house and property and see so many pet items taking up space. A lot of these items may not be in use right now because of the time of the year or because you are in between pets that would use those items. No matter what the case, you may want to put your pet-related items somewhere safe. By having a secure place to store them away from your home, you can keep them in good shape, and you can free up the space they are taking up. Here are some examples of pet-related items you can put into self-storage and reasons why this can be in your best interest: 

Dog houses - If your dog isn't spending much time outside right now, then their dog house may not be getting any use. When you leave the dog house outside and it's not being used, then you are just exposing it needlessly to the elements. This can cause the dog house to become weather-worn, and it may not be in good shape when you want your dog to start using it again. Also, the dog house can be a place where pests like spiders or even rodents will make their homes. You can keep the dog house in a self-storage unit until your dog will be using it again. This way, it will still be in great condition, and it will be pest-free. 

Pet cages - You may have some extra cages for birds, rodents, rabbits, ferrets, or other small animals. If these cages are being kept outside, then they can end up becoming rusted due to exposure to the elements. They can also take up a good amount of room, and this can be inconvenient if you are keeping them in the garage or somewhere else around the house. You can put all of your cages into a self-storage unit until you need them, so you won't have to worry about them getting rusty or taking up too much space. 

Dog agility course equipment - If you work with your dogs doing agility courses, then you may have so much equipment you don't have a good place to store it all. You won't want to store this equipment outside because it can be expensive to replace, and you won't want it to be damaged by things like weather or animals. This is why it's a good idea to keep dog agility equipment you aren't currently using stored in a self-storage unit, where it will be safe and secure until you need it again.
