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.

edited 14 January, 2011 in Service & Therapy Dogs An owner trained dog preforming what could be a life saving task? At least it will help educate people that dogs can do more than guide the visually impaired.

    ARe you talking about the story about the pittie trained to sniff out peanuts? Good job for the dog! I think their comment at the end about the first pittie trained for service type work was pretty funny. Obviously they've not been to this forum! I keep telling hubby I think he would do well with a SD for his Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, but he is not up for the SD lifestyle he says. We would have to have the dog trained by someone else for the scent work, like they did, because hubby wouldn't be able to be around the things he is sensitive to.
