Ran across a kennel that leases dogs during hunting season. I can see the good and bad in this.  Just wondering what your thoughts are on this.

Here is what the website had posted:

Lease a Dog

The ******** Kennel, *******, Texas, will lease you a fully trained bird dog by the day, week, month, or season. The lessee will be required to fill out and sign a Lease Dog Contract prior to or at the time the lease dog(s) are picked up. A copy of the Lease Dog Contract can be mailed or faxed to you in advance upon request for your review or completion.

The lease dogs are fully trained bird dogs. Each dog has had several years of experience hunting wild birds. Our lease dogs have been carefully selected so that we can provide you with a fully trained dog that will point and hold birds, back to sight or command and hunt dead and retrieve. All the lease dogs will be selected from our easier to handle dogs. Our dogs are whistle trained and have had electric collar training. Remember! These are lease dogs. These dogs do not know you nor have they had the opportunity to learn your particular hunting style. A little patience will go a long, enjoyable way.A deposit will be required on each lease dog(s) to be paid prior to or at the time the lease dog(s) is picked up. The deposit will be an amount equal to the value of the dog, which in most cases will be $1,250.00 per lease dog. This deposit is refundable, based upon the terms and conditions stated in our Lease Dog Contract (PDF file). All lease monies are payable in full prior to or at the time your lease dogs are picked up.

We also lease dog trailers and air freight crates to assist with transporting your lease dogs. Dog trailers lease for $100.00 per day. Air freight creates lease for $10.00 per day.



LEASE RATES:
1.  Lease a dog per day:             $100 per dog per day.
2. Lease a dog per week:          $500 per dog per week.
3. Lease a dog per month:      $1,000 per dog per month.
4. Lease a dog per season:      $2,000 per dog per season.

That seems incredibly foolish.  You could buy a hell of a dog for $2,000.  

Plus, half the fun is to have them as your companions.

I'd disagree Wes... it's a great solution for someone that wants a (possibly) great dog, without the hassle of ownership....
Lot's of possible reasons...

current dog dies unexpectedly, with no second string
have a new pup that won't be ready for the season
military, that might be cycled out on a tour
have a flushing dog and you need a pointer for a western trip
live in the city(or where ever)  and don't have a situation that allows for a high powered dog


Lots of reasons....

I think that is a hell of an idea.  In fact, how about a national franchise company that leases out all kinds of dogs like an auto rental co does.  In addition to pointer, flushers, etc as well as guard dogs, lap dogs, chick magnets, etc.

The devious side of me thinks it'd be a he'll of a way to get a finished dog for cheap. You check out a couple of dogs. Find one you like. Pay a deposit, and take the dog for the day. Oops. The dog ran off. I guess I forfeit my deposit. A finished dog for $1250+$100= best price.

Yeah, there are some problems with registration and such, but anyone who'd do this would care.

I guess the fine print in the contract would have to be bullet proof.

This just doesn't add up.  Who in their right mind would send a trained bird dog out with total strangers?  Of course, these dogs are valued at $1250.00 each.  Must be washed out trial dogs.
