Dog parking used to mean tying up your dog while you ran into the store, but one company is changing the definition entirely.
Having a dog in the city can be both exciting and stressful. While on one hand it’s fun to be able to walk around town with your furry friend, many stores and restaurants don’t allow pets inside, so you’re forced into dog parking and having to leave your pooch behind.
Those sad eyes as you walk away are enough to crush your heart, but what can you do?
Enter Dog Parker. This business had the creative idea to provide a new place for dogs to stay while their owners are shopping or eating so they can feel safe, comfortable, and protected —- no matter what is going on around them. Taking the meaning of dog parking literally, these neighborhood houses are a one stop shop for everything your dog will need in the short time that you’re gone.
Dog Parking: The New Way
When you leave your dog tied outside, there are many dangers he could face. From dog napping to an altercation with another dog, your pup might not be safe left alone on the sidewalk. Dog Parker offers the perfect solution for modern dog parking with a climate-controlled dog house that you can easily rent while you’re away.
While inside, the only way to remove your dog from the box is to have the card that unlocks the door. Otherwise no one, and no dog, will be able to reach him and do him harm. Dog Parker can also come in handy to protect your dog from the elements in case a sudden rain or snow storm comes your way.
If you want to continue to walk your dog around the city without having to worry about his well-being, or you don’t take your dog outside because you’re afraid of the dangers of dog parking, a business like Dog Parker is for you. Neighborhood dog houses like these are starting to pop up in cities across the country, and they’re making dog parking simple and safe for the entire community.
How Dog Parking Works
Dog Parker’s mission is to give you more time in the day to spend with your pup. Setting your dog up in one of their houses is fast and easy, and the Dog Parker app allows you to reserve a dog house up to 15 minutes in advance.
The membership cards include a key code that is unique to you, so you won’t have to worry about anyone with a card coming and taking your dog. While your dog is staying in the dog house, he’ll have a temperature-controlled environment as well as ventilation to keep the air fresh. Each house even has a web cam installed so you can check on your dog with the app to see how he is doing while you’re gone.
After you leave, the house is able to sanitize itself with a UV light that kills all bacteria. The interior of the house is also non-porous and firm, so it’s easy to clean if your dog happens to have an accident. With an always clean house, you won’t have to worry about diseases or your dog getting sick.
The app is your connection to your dog while you’re away. You can have all the information about your dog that you need right in the palm of your hand. With the app, you can control the temperature in the box to make sure it’s comfortable and not too hot or cold. You’ll also have a running time of how long your dog has been inside, and access to video to see him in real time. You can even unlock the door right from your phone. The app also offers 24/7 support so you can find all the answers to your questions.
These houses were designed with your dog in mind, so the two of you can spend more time together. You’ll be able to quickly run your errands and return to spend the rest of the day with your dog, who’s already outside and ready to go. Right now, Dog Parker is only available in New York City, but look for neighborhood dog houses coming to your area soon.
