Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Is this breed right for me?

Hello American Eskimo Dog owners....our family is trying to decide right now about getting this kind of dog. Everything I have read about them seems great but I talked to a few people and they have said no way steer clear...these dogs bark a lot and are highly aggressive to strangers which seems opposite of what I have read. Since you guys know them best having them and all can you let me know whats the deal. Are they good all around dogs or what?

    Have you had any interaction with an Eskie? We're part of the spitz family, so we can be a bit more stubborn or bull-headed like a Husky, but we're also lovey pups. Look up Eskies here on Dogster and start there to learn about my breed. Personally, I greet every person with a lot of happiness and love. I do give a few barks if someone comes to my front door or there's a stranger in my house, but I don't carry on once my family has told me it's okay. Good luck! Wags & Woofs, Poppy -- 5 month-old Eskie ~a~ **EDIT** I just looked at your profile page and see you have an Eskie family member that joined in Sept, so you must have made your decision! :) Congrats!
