A few years ago, I was renting an apartment where no dogs were allowed and I didn't have the money for one anyway. But I so longed for canine companionship...once in while. I remember laughing with a friend and saying, "I wish there was a place you could go to rent a dog for the day."
We were kidding.
Today's post isn't about a pet product. It's about a company whose product IS a pet.
The company is called Flexpetz, and they brought my silly dream to life. They rescued dogs and rented them out to members who paid a monthly fee and attended a paid, mandatory training/orientation session. They targeted dog lovers who travel or work too much to devote time to their own pet, people who aren't allowed dogs, and people who aren't yet sure if dog ownership is right for them.
