Pandemic Puppy Owners Spending Big on Training

Puppy Pandemic Continues with Pet Owners Spending Big on Daycare, Training, and Boarding Services.

LOS ANGELES, CA, Jan. 17, 2022 – Diego Halac, owner of the Sherman Oaks franchise location of Zoom Room, spoke to the San Fernando Business Journal about the increase in business they are seeing due to the “pandemic puppy” trend. Halac said that they are seeing a lot of puppies that were adopted during the pandemic now coming in for training services. He attributes this to people being home more during the pandemic and wanting to get a dog, as well as the fact that many of these puppies are now approaching their third birthday. Halac said that business has been so consistent, they are looking to open a second location in the Burbank area.

“We are – knock on wood – super, super busy,” said Diego Halac, owner of the Sherman Oaks franchise location of Zoom Room.

“We have amazing clients,” Halac said. “Just about everybody who comes here are very responsible dog parents.”
