While many dogs would eagerly down a whole can of wet dog food and immediately beg for seconds, most pet owners know how important it is to offer our pets optimal nutrition through controlled portions of a well-balanced diet.
So, when your dog is eating a diet that includes canned dog food, what do you do with that partially eaten can? If you’ve tried covering it with plastic wrap or a little plate, or if you’ve dared to leave it open and uncovered, you know what it’s like to have the food go bad too soon, or solidify into a gross and sludgy blob. And let’s not even mention what the fridge smells like!
Canned dog food lids are one of those pet supplies you didn’t know you needed until you have one. They’re convenient and come in all sizes, often in multi-packs so that you can have more than one can open at a time (and bonus: canned dog food lids can easily be used on canned food for humans, too).
To make your life a little easier, we’ve rounded up nine of the best without skimping on quality or style. Whether you’re looking for something simple, a multi-pack, or something cute and practical, read on for some canned dog food lid suggestions that will work well for your needs.
The Best Canned Dog Food Lids

If you’re looking for canned food lids with a little bit of everything, these silicone covers check all the boxes: they’re affordable, BPA-free, dishwasher-safe, fit most can sizes, and somehow transform the top of the can into a four-legged animal with a tail.

Do you have multiple pets, different size cans, or want to stock up on lids so you don’t have to wash them as often? Maybe you don’t need all those bells and whistles, colors, or shapes.

Need a food lid for your pet dog that’s not only useful, but also has that cute, bespoke vibe? Need a cat can cover in a stylish neutral or a subtle orange? This lid set comes with two cover lids, made to fit most sizes. Not like your pet really cares, but these paw-shaped silicone lids have a cat and dog on them, which according to us makes them pet-neutral and perfect for canned food for both.Find on Chewy
Just when we thought it couldn’t get any more precious, we saw these. Like most of the silicone can lids we found, these fit three standard sizes. What takes these lids to the next level is the ears, of course. They come in other colors, too, for those of us who like even more flair. And of course, they’re dishwasher safe (and even good for cans of human food, too).Shop Now
This dog food can cover is officially for the canines. Store your pet’s food in style with this dishwasher safe, plastic cover lid. Beyond its adorable dog face design (and the fact that you have to gently tug its ears to remove the lid), this can cover is extremely practical. It fits up to four sizes of dog food cans, making it a great value for something so nicely designed.Find on Chewy
While these aren’t officially made for dogs, we thought they deserved a mention. Pop top can covers aren’t for everyone, and you do need to make sure the lip of the can is clean for them to work. However, if you master the technique, a bejeweled set like this can work as can covers and mug covers for you. Nothing but the best for you and your BFF.Shop Now
