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, www.dogster.com 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.
I post this in the B&T but I thought I would post it here as well.
Hello I am new here. Names Christine. We have an Aussie. We got him in June, from a Rescue. So we are still learning his mannerisms. he's an awesome walker, but if he hears a dog barking in there backyards he starts to whine and look at me. If other dogs are walking he gets a bit crazy tries to get to them and bark loudly and or whine and try to run away! I don't get it. I've had moments where I would walk him to that dog and he smells and is fine. I don't get many opportunities on this part. I will try to get his attention saying his name , pull gently on the leash to snap him out of it or touch him. doesn't seem to work. I so would love to start taking him to the dog parks, but I'm worried because of his actions. I have family that had dogs, I'm thinking of doing some sort of play date, but I don't want to overwhelm him. oh we also walk him everyday, try too. Like I said He's a rescue, he's 1.5yrs old and I know nothing of his last family. Any ideas tips or antyign I'm doing wrong I can change? thanks for any help.
