Naturally Brooklyn NY has to come to come along and complicate things:


Why tie your dog to a hook for free when instead you could pay for a
private climate-controlled doghouse on the sidewalk, complete with a
smartphone app that locks the door and shows you the doghouse webcam?

I don't think any of these are mapped yet (in fact I think this
company's in decline because I used to see these all over and no longer
do). I wouldn't want to tag these as "hitching_point" because there's no
hitch. I might have been inclined to shoehorn them into
amenity=animal_boarding, but it since they fill the same need at the
hitching points I wonder if there should be a tag that could apply to
both of these items.
