Pet Adoption Palooza: Puppies All The Rage During The Pandemic

With the global pandemic has come a widespread demand. Pet adoptions have soared under coronavirus and, in particular, sales of dogs are booming. Shelters, rescues, breeders and pet stores have all reported more demand for dogs and puppies than they can fill.

Now, as more people take home a pandemic puppy there's an adjustment period and this also brings new demand for trainers. As more people return to work and school, the schedules that pets have become accustomed to are changing, which can lead to behavioral problems. Trainers are reporting their phones ringing off the hook, as pet parents seek assistance.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss pet adoptions and training under the pandemic are Stray Animal Adoption Program President Bob Howard; and Dog Abilities Owner and Trainer Dae Grodin.
