"Outside each of its three Portland-area grocery stores, Zupan's Markets has placed climate-controlled dog houses that shoppers can rent while inside the stores. The homes are provided by DogSpot, a New York company that has homes placed in Seattle as well.

Each home is air-conditioned and secure using a door that can only be unlocked by the person that rented the home through the app. They are also self-cleaning using a vet-grade UV light that sanitizes the bacteria after each use."
