CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — Air-conditioned dog houses coming to downtown Cuyahoga Falls will allow people to take their dogs with them while running errands and dining at restaurants.

The City of Cuyahoga Falls is the first of several Northeast Ohio cities welcoming the dog houses in their cities. The free dog houses will provide flexibility for visitors who are exploring downtown by allowing them to safely secure their four-legged family members while they shop and eat.

“We are excited to add another pet-friendly element to Downtown Cuyahoga Falls,” said Mayor Walters in a news release.

The dog units are temperature controlled, high-tech dog houses that feature a puppy cam, app-controlled lock and fresh-air ventilation to ensure clean and safe stay for dogs.

A vet-grade UVC light activates between each use to sanitize the house. The units will be located next to the Pavilion, 2085 Front Street and next to 2251 Front Street.

Cuyahoga Falls will lease the two DogSpots for $500 per month, and offer it to pet owners for free. Other DogSpot locations typically charge owners 30 cents per minute, according to the company's website.

Future locations for the DogSpot houses will include Dave's Market in Cleveland and Cleveland Heights. The dates of installment for those houses have not been released yet.
