PORTLAND, Ore. – On July 9, DogSpot, a New York City-based pet-tech startup, announced its upcoming launch in Portland, Ore. with grocery store partner Zupan's Markets.

Customers can use the app-connected houses as a safer and smarter solution when shopping with their dogs, rather than leaving them in the car or tied up on the street.

All DogSpot houses are temperature controlled with A/C, puppy cam, app-controlled lock, and fresh-air ventilation to ensure a comfortable, clean, and safe stay for your dog. A vet-grade UVC light activates between each use to sanitize the house.

"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," said Mike Zupan, President & CEO of Zupan's Markets.

The Zupan's DogSpot official advertising partner is Portland-based Portland Pet Food Company.

Zupan's Markets 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, and even reserve a house 15 minutes prior to arrival. The app also provides a live "puppy cam" feed of their dog inside the house and house temperature.

The DogSpot is at all three Zupan's Markets locations (Burnside, Macadam and Lake Oswego). Customers can download the app and sign up for free. It costs $0.30 per min to use DogSpot, but entering code PORTPUP60 at sign up will provide 60 minutes free.
