Kapolei (KHON2) — Some say that living with a furry friend is better. Adopting new pets is something many families have done during a pandemic where people work from home.
Maria Hagood is the head trainer for the Island Dog Obedience, who said her business has recovered since the pandemic began.
“Keeping puppies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week — it’s a big job in addition to everything else,” Hagood said.
Hagood says it offers home or virtual lessons as well as a variety of packages, depending on what the client wants.
She said that since many people work from home, a common requirement is to train their pets to sit quietly during zoom calls.
“Now, when you’re sitting on the phone or having a zoom meeting, your puppy keeps barking, jumping, scratching, biting his paw and you can’t work.” Hagood said.
Hagood says a well-behaved dog is a happy dog. Currently, the demand for dog trainers is high, so she had to expand and hire new trainers.
Hagood says he specializes in obedience to leash walking, obsessive-compulsive barking, and separation anxiety.
