Although it seems a bit crude to compare rental dogs with rental cars, the concepts are similar at least in the sense that someone else is responsible for major care and maintenance. I’d never expect to rent a car for a weekend and then be asked to take it in for an oil change or a tune-up; and when borrowing or renting a dog, you don’t worry about grooming, bathing, or veterinary care. But these factors are rarely the major attraction to potential renters. Some people like having a dog with them as a way of breaking the ice when meeting other humans (a role dogs perform nearly as well as babies). In other cases, it’s simply a matter of wanting company, a hiking companion, or a playmate. Either way, the availability of loaner dogs is increasingly becoming a competitive advantage for hotels in areas where guests like to spend a lot of time outdoors.WeHo’s City Council, ever the protector of pets, banned the burgeoning business of pet rentals at its last council meeting.

Conversely, many people who rent dogs do so in order to make sure the animals will fit into their households and lifestyles before making a permanent commitment. If you’ve lived with a dog for a week and find that it doesn’t get along with your other pets, bothers the neighbors with its barking, or causes a severe allergic reaction, it’s nice to know that you can return the dog with no leash attached, so to speak.When it comes to renting a property with a pet, though, things may get complicated. Many people can’t find a pet-friendly apartment quickly. When a landlord finds out you’d like to move in with your four-legged friend, it can turn out you’ve been barking up the wrong tree and haven’t got a dog’s chance of getting that home! Why is it so hard sometimes to rent a dog-friendly house? Choosing a cat-friendly apartment can be a challenge, too. Let us see the overall situation with pet rentals across the country. offers flexible pet rental programs in several cities (with plans to expand to numerous other locations in the United States and half a dozen other countries).
