I live to make my dog happy. If you have a dog, I’m guessing you do too (unless, perhaps, you’re a monster).

At 50 pounds, he’s a sizable pup, and I feed him a mix of bagged and homemade food. So that means a big ol’ 25-pound bag of food can usually last upwards of two months. Retrieving food from said bag to fill his bowl with can get messy, and I've wound up with bits of kibble on my kitchen closet's floor at least a few times a week. More importantly, the bags aren’t resealable, so once summer rolls around, I worry that his food might attract all sorts of unwelcome pests and get soggy from the often-unbearable New York humidity. And no one’s dog deserves a bowl of subpar grub filled with creepy crawlers.

Enter this three-piece airtight storage combo, which has made doggo meal time 100% stress-free since I bought it nearly two years ago.

With a 33-quart capacity, the deceivingly spacious big container fits the contents of the entire 25-pound bag, and the smaller container is perfect for storing treats or any other pet supplies you might want to protect from the elements and vermin. It also comes with a handy food scoop, conveniently marked to indicate ½ cup through 2 cups, in ½-cup increments, so you're not just winging it and can feed your pup the precise amount they require — and essential for doggos on a diet.

The BPA-free plastic set is narrow enough to fit in even the smallest of closets, and if there isn’t a closet available, its simple, unassuming design — and availability in 13 colors — makes it easy to match any room décor without looking out of place. The large container has 360-degree wheels for convenient access, but you can you can opt to leave the wheels off if you'd prefer a stationary storage container.

It’s also a customer favorite on Amazon and Target — so if you don’t trust me on this one, trust the thousands of five-star reviews to back me up. Fresh food = happy pup = happy you. I mean, just look at Bailey!

"This food storage container arrived deconstructed with the small box in the larger box and the wheels in a separate baggy but was super easy to assemble! Took less than two minutes as you just have to pop the wheels in. We washed it before putting food in it but it didn't have a strong plastic smell or anything like that. We got our pet's name in a vinyl decal, which was the perfect touch!" —Ashley M.

The smaller bin is also the perfect size for storing canned food, with the set adored by cat parents (and, apparently, cats themselves) as well.

"This product is awesome!! Fit my 16 lb. bag of cat food with room to spare. Quality plastic, nice latches, wheels roll great on the carpet and a scoop. You can't ask for a better food container. Here is the best part: The top bin fits an entire flat of can food and still closes perfectly. I am completely delighted with this purchase. Even the kitty approves. ;)" —KAshley

Got birds to feed? Yeah, it's got you covered for that too.

Original review, 5/25/13: "I use this for my wild bird seed and love it. Rodents hate it, lol."Update, 6/22/16: "I still love these containers! They have remained airtight, rodent-proof, and insect-proof (even keeping a shipment-obtained weevil infestation IN the container). I've purchased several more for other pets in my family." —L.M.T.

Just some more happy pupperinos livin' that fresh-food life!!

"Terrific pet food storage container system. The lower container holds two 12 lb. bags of dog food. The top stackable container with color-coordinating scoop is perfect for blending dog foods. My English creme golden retriever pup will be a very large dog, and after researching nutritional needs of large-breed puppies, I am able to blend a mixture for feeding in the top container. The blue color matches my kitchen too! Initially there was a slight plastic odor which I was able to easily eliminate by placing an empty open dog food bag inside for a few hours. The wheels make it easy to move for refilling and cleaning beneath. The latches are of sound quality as well. Best of all, it's airtight so my dogs have never even tried to open it themselves. Highly recommended product." —Savvyshopper

Even destructive doggos on a mission are no match for this bad boy. No more coming home to a food strewn about the floor and a guilty lil' pup hiding in the corner.

"Not only are these containers airtight, they are also dog-proof! I left my three boxers inside the house with two sets of these containers and came home to find them in various places in the house, with numerous scratches and bite marks, but still closed and the contents safe! Attempts at self-feeding were foiled! Great product!" —Diana Nicholson

Get the three-piece set from Amazon for $18.89+, Target for $22.99, or Bed Bath & Beyond for $22.99 (color availability varies).
