"Rent a Dog" Service Hits US

Would You Rent a Pet?

I've got a bunch of friends who have the room in their hearts for a pet . . . but no room in their studio apartments/ lease restrictions/ busy schedules/ travel plans to care for a pet. Refraining from getting a pet who relies on you to survive when you know you can't give it the care and attention he deserves is a smart move, so what are those animal lovers to do? Although North practically has a waiting list of friends who want to borrow him for the day, I recently read a story about dog rental services in Japan, which reminded me of our very own Flexpetz.
It's already expanding quickly, so clearly someone's buying in. With this pricey service, you can "rent" a dog, which makes me wonder if I'm missing out on a key business plan. I know that pets are good for therapy so I can see the desire, but I'm not sure I wholly agree. What's your take on renting a pet?
