Taking your dog with you on the NYS Thruway? Well, they've got you covered this summer with air-conditioned dog houses! Yes, 10 thruway rest stops are offering air-conditioned dog houses so when you need to stop at a rest stop, your dog can too!
These dog houses are called "DogSpot" and are available to rent for 30 cents per minute. Each dog house has a glass door and offers a camera that you can view from your smartphone. They are equipped with air-conditioning, as well as heat for any time of the year. Worried about the cleanliness of them? Well, each house has sanitizing UV lights, and is also cleaned daily.
I think this is a great idea and I hope they are implemented at more locations in the future. If you're wondering which rest stops have these dog houses, check the list of them below and let us know if you'll be using these in the future.
DogSpot dog houses are available at:
- Junius Ponds
- Clifton Springs
- New Baltimore
