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.

Hi , first of all i want to say i love animals , so please dont judge me. i have 2 rescued small dogs and a beautifull akita. but the akita has tried to kill the small **** several times.. after all tries my only solution is to put her a muzzle while the small one is outside.. so im looking for one, but i didnt find too much on ebay.. does anyone know about muzzles for akitas? i have a beautifull one but it almost killed my other little dog , both are females. ive tryied all.. so i need a muzzle while both are outside but i want a good one that dont hurt her and is confortable etc. any ideas thanks!

    If you must have them outside together then your best option is a basket muzzle. It is common for Akitas to not care much for smaller animals and see them as prey and same-sex aggression, as in your Akita is also a female is common as well. Good Luck.
