It does feel odd to call getting a dog a trend, but there’s been an undeniable uptick. Since March, at least ten people I know have gotten dogs. Even I jumped on the Poke and um hunter club hunter shirt bandwagon, taking home a corgi puppy, Wally, in September. But it’s not just me or my social circle that has welcomed a new pet into our lives. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the number of people looking to foster a dog in L.A. and New York has at least doubled since March and it’s estimated that up to 47% of households in the United States have a dog. With so much more time spent at home over the past months and for the foreseeable future, having a pet around to provide affection, support, and distraction seems sensible.
