you may need this one day:) a dedicated doggy mud room! A room just for the dogs and their stuff - this might sound like a waste of space, but if you have big dogs, you know how awesome that would be! Especially the built in dog bath.
Upcycle dog bed or cat bed from chair. what if each dog had this chair around a lowered table for the party tablescape? For the kitty cats! Thrift store of garage sale chairs and a simple cushion / pillow! Paint and use a fun bright print!
