Cities throughout the United States are beginning to offer dog houses with air conditioning and a puppy cam.  DogSpot, on of the makers of dog houses, available to rent by the minute is launched in Brooklyn, NY;  Los Angeles, CA; Seattle, Washington D.C.; San Jose, CA; Orlando, FL; Kansas City, MO; Columbus, OH, Chattanooga, TN; Jersey City, NJ; Charleston, SC; and several more cities. 

DogSpot partnered with local businesses that were committed to be more dog friendly.  When data came out showing a change in consumer behavior- dog owners were switching stores to go to the stores that were more dog friendly, took more time in store, and made more unplanned stops when there were options for their pets. 

The success has led to more cities and businesses participating across the country, offering more uhm…pet-time-shares.
