It was hard to resist the urge to adopt a puppy during the pandemic -- when people wanted the companionship and knew they’d be home for housebreaking. However, the training seemed to stop there -- and that’s led to a population of pups with bad manners. According toToday, approximately 23 million households in America adopted fur babies in 2020, but now that we’re returning to work, the dogs are in desperate need of behavior modification. Pet owners are being encouraged to enroll their dogs in obedience training, but they are also suggesting “enrichment” toys and activities that keep their brains and bodies engaged. And don’t forget dog-walking services to get your pet out and about while you slave away to provide kibble.
