You can rent just about anything these days, including puppies

You can rent just about anything these days, including puppies. 

A student at Brigham Young University came up with the idea when she heard about the overpopulation of unwanted dogs and puppies in Utah. 

Jenna Miller runs the rent-a-puppy business from her dorm room.

You can choose your dog and reserve an hour or two of playtime.
 
Miller says it's good socialization for the pups. "Sometimes at first they're really shy, and won't look at anyone," Miller says. "After they're rented out a few times, they'll lick anyone in the face, and go jump on them."
 
But the humane society still has some concerns with this idea. "It's the whole concept of renting puppies out, at a time when they need consistency and stability in their lives. We're philosophically opposed to that," said Carl Arky, the Director of Communication for the Human Society of Utah. 
 
Miller says she's had 100% success in finding the dogs permanent homes.
