Koiraparkki, dog parking in Finnish, is a public art project aiming at making a better waiting space for our furry friends.

1 out of 9 Finnish have a dog. 
There are 1 island and 92 parks only for dogs in Helsinki, Finland.
They even have dog parking spaces with signages in front of supermarkets, which is a lovely idea but a space could have been more friendly. This project is a playful experiment, aiming at suggesting a better waiting spots for dogs – a mini park where dogs can have fun and leave their portraits while waiting their owners.
