(KGW) There’s now a safe way to keep your dog cool while you shop in Portland, Oregon.

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.
