– Dog trainers in the industry are facing financial difficulties due to the ongoing writers and actors strike in Hollywood.
– Omar Von Muller, a veteran dog trainer whose dogs have appeared in commercials and award-winning films, is among those affected by the strike. He expresses frustration and hopes to return to work soon.
As the writers and actors strike continues in Hollywood, dog trainers are feeling the impact of the industry’s halt. Like many others who rely on Hollywood for their livelihood, dog trainers have been facing tough times.
Omar Von Muller, a dog trainer with over 20 years of experience, has trained dogs that have appeared in various projects, including commercials and Oscar-winning films. However, his dog training business has been significantly affected by the ongoing strike.
Von Muller laments the timing of the strike, especially after seeing positive signs of recovery following the pandemic. He mentions that promising movies and contracts were on the horizon before the strike disrupted their plans.
In an effort to make ends meet, Von Muller and his fellow trainers have taken up private work to compensate for the lack of opportunities caused by the strike. However, they find that this additional work is not sufficient to sustain their businesses.
The dog training community in Hollywood is hopeful for a resolution to the strike so that they can resume their work with their beloved canine companions.
