NYS Thruway Adds 10 DogSpot Rest Stops
USA Today reports that DogSpot crates were recently installed at 10 Thruway rest stops, locally including Oneida, Chittenango, Pattersonville, and others.
The crates are equipped with both air conditioning and heaters, and the manufacturer claims a UV light keeps the interior sanitary, killing any bacteria that might be left behind."
These crates are all smartphone-enabled. You download an app to lock the crate, and only you can later unlock the lock when it’s time to get back on the road. Time in the DogSpot costs 30 cents per minute. The reason for the cost, so people don't use this as a long term solution.
