If you love dogs but schedules, traveling or your landlord doesn't permit it Flexpetz might be your answer. According to their site: Flexpetz provides our members with local access to a variety of dogs, all of whom are rescued or rehomed, very lovable and fully trained. Flexpetz members can spend from just a few hours to a number of days with each of our dogs. Flexpetz dogs are available in varied breed sizes to ensure compatibility with our member's individual lifestyles and unique circumstances. Love of your waggy loved friends doesn't come cheap nor easy. Reading through the charges: Annual fee, monthly membership, daily rental fees, inconvienence fees...ect you had better really love those four legged critters. They do provide you with food and a bed, and drop off and pick up service if you need [additional charges of course]. At first we were very excited to hear about the "rental" program because we love dogs and regulations in our building don't permit them. After adding up the bling...it wouldn't work and even if it did, it might call for a new pair of shoes over a pet. We understand caring for an animal is expensive but next stop... borrowing our friend's dog for an afternoon - cheap!
