"It's been growing super fast."For dog lovers concerned about the welfare of the animals, Miller said not to worry. There are contracts, delineated liabilities that put responsibility and good care on the renter. Most dogs are rented for one or two hours. She also has connected with veterinarians in the area.The puppies are purchased from several locations, often from people who bought them and changed their mind, from the animal shelter and events like Petco's adoption Saturdays. All of the puppies have their shots, and are groomed and fed before being delivered for their rental appointment. Currently the puppies are delivered only in the Provo/Orem area.Miller has four employees who care for, deliver and pick up the dogs and seven rental puppies that all live together. Provo law puts no limit on the number of dogs under 6 months of age that can live at one house. Most of the older puppies have been adopted to previous renters, like Orem resident and BYU student Summer Jones.
"A month ago I heard about it from a friend at school. I thought that would be so much fun and texted the Puppies For Rent number. They replied right back. My preference was a medium to large breed dog. They set up the appointment and that was it," Jones said.It was Jones's little sister who got the rest of the family excited. After the first time, they decided to rent the chocolate lab/border collie mix again."We talked about possibly adopting and Jenna agreed to let us rent overnight. It was really well tempered and we fell in love," Jones said.According to Puppies For Rent employee Bradley Corry, a BYU communications/journalism major, it was his love of dogs that made Miller hire him."Delivering puppies can wear you out," Corry said. "People always want us there on time, but never have a problem if we're late picking up."Corry added that sometimes when he delivers he can hear the excited giggles and squeals from those inside the home.
While Miller started the business to cater to BYU students, word got out and now Utah Valley University students, families and single working folks are all renting puppies. Corry said he's delivered puppies for dates, birthday parties and surprise gifts and one mom rented a puppy for her daughter as a reward."It's a great date activity," said Matt Long, a UVU student. "I love dogs and rented Wesley the Maltese for a first date. It's a huge thing. How your date treats a dog is how they'll treat humans," Long said. "It was easy and fun. It was better than going to a restaurant for the same amount of money."BYU student Danny Carney said, "I was hearing about Puppies for Rent and said I've got to do this on a date. I rented Douglas, a mixed lab. They deliver anywhere and that's great because most of us students don't have cars. A couple of my friends have rented too."Carney said he plans on doing it again and the best part is you usually get a kiss at the end of the date, even if it is just from a puppy.
