Sidewalk Dog Sanctuary Co. Expands Services to Oregon
DogSpot’s advertising partner at Zupan’s Markets in Portland, Ore., is Portland Pet Food Co.
DogSpot has expanded its sidewalk dog sanctuary services to Portland, Ore. The Brooklyn, N.Y.-based company makes high tech sidewalk houses that are placed at the entrance of locations where dogs are prohibited.
The app-connected houses are a safer and smarter solution when customers are shopping with their dogs, rather than leaving them in the car or tied up on the street, company officials said. DogSpot houses feature heat and A/C, auto-sanitizing UVC lights, a puppy cam and an app-controlled lock, according to officials.
“People who have dogs get it—you don’t get a dog to leave them cooped up inside all day,” said Chelsea Brownridge, co-founder and CEO of DogSpot. “The best part of their day is going out on walks around town, heading to the dog park and spending time with you. We’re making it possible to say, ‘Wanna go for a walk?!’ more often and more safely than before.”
DogSpot’s entry into Portland begins with three Zupan’s Markets locations in Burnside, Macadam and Lake Oswego.
“Zupan’s Markets is committed to providing our customers with a grocery experience like none other in Portland and Lake Oswego,” said Mike Zupan, president and CEO of Zupan’s Markets. “We don’t want any member of the family to feel left out, which is why we could not be more excited to introduce DogSpot’s high-tech houses, sharing a safe and secure solution for our food-loving customers shopping with Fido.”
Portland Pet Food Co. is Zupan’s DogSpot advertising partner.
“We are thrilled to be the first partner for DogSpot at Zupan’s,” said Kate McCarron, founder of Portland Pet Food Co. “We appreciate and share Zupan’s and DogSpot’s commitment to the safety and health of dogs. These high-tech houses are a great alternative to tying up a dog outside the store or leaving your dog in a car. As makers of all-natural dog meals and treats, we applaud new innovative options that bring health and safety to our community and we are pleased to be a partner of Zupan’s and DogSpot, who share our vision.”
Customers can access the houses through the DogSpot app, available for both iPhone and Android users, where they can view the locations in their area. Houses can be reserved 15 minutes prior to arrival.
