Dog Pampering: Samsung Builds A $30,000 Dog Dream House
Dogs of all sizes and shapes can now have the time of their lives in a Doggy Dream House that features a $30,000 hot tub, among other things. Man’s best friend can also enjoy the AstroTurf coated treadmill, hydrotherapy pool, entertainment room, and snack dispensers.
The creator of this doggy heaven is multinational conglomerate Samsung, and a team of 12 designers were needed to bring the company’s vision to life, according to the International Business Times. It took a month and a half to complete the project, and the Doggy Dream House also features a Samsung Galaxy TabS with internet connection.
Here’s what Andy Griffiths, president of Samsung Electronics U.K. and Ireland said:
“The Samsung Dream Doghouse looks sleek and modern, featuring the kind of tech the discerning dog of the future will need. 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.”
Samsung is showing the Dog Dream Home at the Crufts Dog Show at England’s National Exhibition, but the first model was given away in a social media contest.
The company has also developed a consumer grade model of the house: Samsung performed a customer survey and came to the conclusion that 64 % of dog owners believed their pets would benefit from more technology, while 18 % said they’d like their pup to have a hot tub. Samsung even discovered that 75 % of the people surveyed said Samsung should make a dog treadmill for their furry friends.
