Air Conditioning Dog Houses Are The New Genius Cool Spots For Dogs In The City
With much of the country already sweating through the dog days of summer, a new company is offering four-legged friends a much-needed place to cool down. Air-conditioned houses for dogs are popping up outside of restaurants and stores across the country thanks to a company called DogSpot. Via: Yahoo
Dog owners with their furry friends in tow, you now have a safe place to keep them while they dine, shop or do business.
The service for dogs operates similarly to the way Uber works for humans.
Dog owners use an app to reserve a nearby house for their furry friend up to 15 minutes in advance. The owner can unlock the house via the app, and then also monitor their dog on the app through a webcam. The fee is 30 cents per minute or a $19.99 monthly membership.
DogSpot founders, Chelsea Brownridge and and Todd Schechter, created DogSpot after their experience living with their rescue dog, Winston, in Brooklyn.
"He has a ton of energy so to get him out of the house on as many walks as possible was really important," Chelse said. "I started to realize how many times he couldn't come with me outside because I'd just be going to a store or restaurant for a few minutes", she told Yahoo and added, "There are all these things you do every day in a walkable city like New York where dogs aren't allowed to go inside." DogSpot is now expanding to dozens of cities across the U.S.
