This $30,000 Kennel Can Make All Your Dog’s Dreams Come True (Video)
Crufts 2015, billed as the world’s largest dog show, asked Samsung UK (this year’s official sponsor of Crufts) to build the “dog kennel of the future,” according to the Huffington Post. What it got was a doghouse that cost $30,000 to build and includes dirt-covered treadmills, a hydrotherapy pool, built-in tablets (presumably for when your dog needs some quality time alone with Netflix, as dogs often do) and paw-operated snack dispensers.
This “dream doghouse” will be on display for pet owners to drool over at the dog show, which takes place this week in Birmingham, England.
Andy Griffiths, president of Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland, told the Telegraph, “With the Samsung Dream Doghouse, we wanted to reflect the nation’s growing trend for using technology. From dogs who have social media profiles to owners who use video calling to check on their pet while away, technology is fast becoming an integral part of everyday life.”
According to the Telegraph, 64 percent of dog owners believe their pet would benefit from more technology and gadgets. With the new Samsung dog dream house, pets can bask in all the technology they could ever want; maybe they’ll finally get enough computer time to keep their social media profiles up to date.
