It's going to be a tough fight for FlexPetz. It's probably a very small subset of people that want to rent dogs so badly that they'd go up to bat for FlexPetz of their own volition. Also, for those that really love dogs, they would probably either OWN one, or be horrified by the prospect of a dog rental service.
