High-tech on-demand climate-controlled dog houses exist

This is the Dog Parker. It's an on-demand, self-contained, climate-controlled, auto-sanitized urban dog house.

Going into the store and they have one of these sitting outside on the sidewalk? Pull out your smartphone, open the shelter with the app, and put your pooch inside while you shop. There's a "Puppy Cam" in it so you can spy on your dog while it's locked inside.

Dogs seem to like it (though the door isn't closed in any of the photos):

All of the pups were loving Dog Parker at the Atlantic Antic festival! Especially the AC inside! Man was it hot that day! That didn't stop us from having a blast! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸŒž . . . . . . #brooklyn #dogsofdogparker #dogsofbrooklyn #brooklyndogs #barkslope #prospectbark #mccarenbark #dogfriendly #doghouse #dogsofnyc #nyc #dogsofinsta #dogparker #instapup #atlanticantic

Right now, you can find these things all over Brooklyn. Because, of course.
